Rotherham   0 - 0   Cheltenham

Rotherham 0-0 Cheltenham

Rotherham 0-0 Cheltenham

Cheltenham produced a dogged backs-to-the-wall display to frustrate Rotherham and edge further towards safety.

Kevin Ellison missed the hosts' best chance after 20 minutes, scuffing wide after being set up by Adam Le Fondre.

Ellison then shot just over and Pablo Mills had an effort cleared off the line as Rotherham failed to break down the visitors' resolute defence.

Cheltenham hardly crossed the half-way line but created a rare chance when Justin Richards headed just wide.


Rotherham United manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"We huffed and we puffed but we didn't blow the house down, I think we had 12 shots in the first 20 minutes.

"We just needed that little bit of luck in the front of goal but I can't fault the effort and commitment they have given me."

Cheltenham boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"Again my two centre backs were superb. I thought we looked good and limited them to very little.

"The pitch was very difficult and they're a decent team but I thought we created the best two chances of the game. We wanted to win the game so that's the only downer on the day.

"We've now got a chance on Tuesday to seal safety with three games to go. We haven't won either of our two games this week, but although I would've liked a win, I'm satisfied."
