Morecambe   2 - 0   Rotherham

Morecambe 2-0 Rotherham

Morecambe 2-0 Rotherham

Morecambe defeated fellow promotion chasers Rotherham to move into the League Two play-off places.

Phil Jevons converted a Mark Duffy cross from close range 12 minutes after the restart to put the home team ahead.

Two minutes later Simon Hackney headed beyond Andy Warrington after Stewart Drummond picked him out.

Rotherham responded and striker Adam Le Fondre drew three saves from Barry Roche, while Marcus Marshall headed straight at the Morecambe keeper.


Rotherham United manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"It's like me putting a recording on and saying the same things at half time and the same at full time.

"That was disappointing, it was spineless.

"The fans have got a right to moan."
