Rotherham   1 - 2   Southend

Rotherham 1-2 Southend

Rotherham 1-2 Southend

A fine Southend performance helped them to a league double over Rotherham.

Ryan Hall volleyed home Sean Clohessy's cross to put the Shrimpers ahead after just 32 seconds.

Blair Sturrock powerfully headed home Hall's cross for 2-0, as the home side struggled to keep up with the visitors' hard-work and determination.

The Millers, who last tasted defeat away to Southend in October, hit back when Nick Fenton scrambled home Nicky Law's corner, but it was not enough.


Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:
"I'm pleased for every one of the players that played today and the squad of players because it's been difficult this year.

"It's been such a rollercoaster; we've been up and down, one week elated, the next week disappointed, we have to just put that home form to bed.

"Performances like today's away from home, if we can take into our home games regularly we're going to be shooting up this league."

Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"To be a goal down after 40 seconds, it was so naive. To concede the two sloppy goals that we did and to be two goals down in 15 minutes, it gives you a mountain to climb.

"I find it hard to pick someone out who has done well. The tempo just wasn't there. We just weren't at the races.

"We can't use the wind as an excuse because they had to deal with it as well."
