Rotherham 2-1 Lincoln

Rotherham 2-1 Lincoln

Rotherham   2 - 1   Lincoln City

Ryan Cresswell's 86th-minute debut goal earned Rotherham victory and denied Lincoln a battling point.

Adam Le Fondre slammed the home side ahead on the rebound after Kevin Ellison's initial volley was cleared.

Lincoln drew level when Mustapha Carayol raced beyond the home defence and fired the ball in.

But the Millers piled forward in the closing stages and eventually found the winner when Nicky Law forced over a cross and skipper Cresswell nodded in.


Lincoln City manager Chris Sutton told BBC Lincolnshire:
"I thought we looked nervous in the first half but there wasn't a lot in it - we conceded a poor goal but they didn't cause us too many problems.

"In the second half we drew level and looked like we would go on to win the game but both goals were poor and we have to do better.

"It's disappointing because I don't think we deserved that and there were a lot of pluses, but ultimately it's about results."
