Rotherham 6-4 Cheltenham

Rotherham 6-4 Cheltenham

Rotherham   6 - 4   Cheltenham

Adam Le Fondre grabbed four goals as Rotherham came from 3-1 down.

Jeff Goulding shot Cheltenham ahead and although Le Fondre's 18-yard shot made it 1-1, a Wes Thomas tap-in and Shaun Jeffers's cool strike put Town 3-1 up.

But Danny Harrison's curler followed by a header and a penalty rebound shot from Le Fondre saw Rotherham lead 4-3.

Ryan Cresswell headed a fifth and Le Fondre's shot made it 6-3 while Wesley Thomas missed a penalty for Town before Keith Lowe headed in the final goal.


Rotherham United manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"A great game to watch, not a great game for me to watch but we showed a lot of spirit and got the goals at the right time.

"I thought Adam LeFondre was just magnificent, the best I've seem him in an all round game.

"They showed a bit of character and got the second goal at the right time and then a good start for us in the second half."

Cheltenham boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"We've got to learn quickly, I'm delighted with the stuff we're playing, but we've got to defend better than we did today - there's no hiding from it.

"I thought the [Rotherham] penalty was a joke to be honest, I thought it was really soft, but it didn't affect the players like it should have done - it should have galvanised them, it should have made them come out stronger to show what a bad decision it was."

"It affected us mentally and in the end that 10 minutes cost us the game."
