Rotherham   0 - 0   Bury

Rotherham v Bury

Rotherham 0-0 Bury

Promotion challengers Rotherham United and Bury played out a goalless draw at the Don Valley Stadium.

In a quiet first half, Ryan Taylor and Johnny Mullins went close for the home side, while Bury's Kyle Bennett saw his left-foot shot go just wide.

The visitors had the better chances in the second half - Tom Lees fired wide from six yards out and David Worrall hit the side netting.

Rotherham move up to fourth in League Two, while Bury remain second.


Rotherham United boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I think we did deserved to win it.

"To be honest they have had probably the best chance of the game but we had a lot of chances. We didn't get the break.

"They're second in the table but we're a better team."

Bury manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"I thought it was a fair result. Both teams had chances, but both lacked that bit of quality needed to take the three points.

"It keeps them five points behind us with a game in hand and if you finish five points above Rotherham, that's a pretty good season you've had.

"We can play a lot better, but not to lose and a clean sheet is great for us."
