Football News

Rotherham boosted their promotion hopes with a 2-1 victory over 10-man Lincoln at Sincil Bank.

Adam Le Fondre fired the Millers ahead from the penalty spot in the 14th minute after being brought down by Moses Swaibu in the box.

Swaibu saw red for the challenge and Gary Roberts added a second for Rotherham after 65 minutes before Steve Lennon reduced the deficit late on.

Lincoln's hopes of taking anything from the game looked to be over when Swaibu was dismissed and Le Fondre tucked away the resulting spot-kick.

Imps goalkeeper Rob Burch denied Kevin Ellison before Brian Gilmour hit the post at the other end with a 30-yard drive.

Rotherham looked to have put the game out of sight when Roberts side-footed past Burch following a quick counter-attack in the 65th minute.

But Lincoln staged a late fightback and grabbed a consolation when Lennon grabbed his first goal for the club with 13 minutes remaining.
