Rotherham   1 - 0   Aldershot

Rotherham 1-0 Aldershot

Rotherham 1-0 Aldershot

Adam Le Fondre's 17th goal this season saw Rotherham edge out Aldershot.

The visitors could have gone ahead from the spot when Tom Newey fouled Ben Herd but Wade Small saw his penalty hit the upright and rebound to safety.

And they were made to pay when Marcus Marshall crossed for Le Fondre who slammed in a shot from close range to put the hosts ahead on 40 minutes.

The Shots created little after the break and they had Jamie Vincent sent off for a second caution on 87 minutes.


Aldershot assistant manager Gary Owers told BBC Surrey:
"We were looking for a response from the players after the Dover loss in the FA Cup and I thought we got that today.

"In the first-half, we took the game to Rotherham. It was a case of what might have been had the penalty gone in, but it didn't.

"We're not feeling sorry for ourselves. We've got a decent run of games coming up. It's up to us to take those games head on and turn our season around. The players know we've got to get down to some hard work and get a couple of wins."

Rotherham United boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"We defended well when we had to today and a clean sheet is a bonus.

"After the first 10 minutes I thought we dominated the game.

"First time for a long time we haven't been booed off at half time or at the end. It surprised us. If we continue to press and play like that then we're going to win a lot of games."
