Rodgers rocks Rotherham: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Luke Rodgers left it late to secure Notts County a hard fought 1-0 victory over fellow promotion rivals Rotherham and cement themselves in second spot.

Rodgers capitalized on a flick on by Lee Hughes to blast home right at the death just as a goalless draw looked on the cards.

It was no less than the hosts deserved after a blistering start. Hughes spurned an opportunity after just 46 seconds, before Rodgers clipped the post and Hughes hit the crossbar from John Thompson's cross.

Rotherham, who had won three of their last four outings, mustered only one meaningful first half chance, but Adam Le Fondre driving wide.

However, the Millers gave the hosts a scare just after the restart with Marcus Marshall beating Kasper Schmeichel only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.

County saw Ben Davies fire wide and Hughes had a header cleared off the line by Ian Sharps, before Rodgers stole the headlines.

Sharps came close at the other end late on, but headed straight at Schmeichel as County clung on to go 10 games unbeaten.
