Nouha Dicko continued his fine form for Rotheram this week as he continued his goal scoring record to make it 3 in 3 for the Millers as he opened the scoring in the 2-1 vicotry at bottom side Bristol City when he followed in on Kieran Agard's long range shot to put them in front inside 3 minutes. Ben Pringle doubled their lead just before the half hour mark when Jay Emmanuel Thomas gifted Lee Frecklington possesion, he broke away and teed up Pringle for the seconf of the afternoon for the Millers. Bobby Reid got nothing more than a consolation 8 minutes from time as he pulled off one of those " all the way in's" with a curling cross that evaded Adam Collin.
The win sees Nouha Dicko's side extend the gap to 4 points over Bradford, Swindon, Walsall and Port Vale in the Play-off battle, whilst the Millers occupy the last play off spot they are 9 points off 2nd placed Wolves who they are preparing the visit of on Saturday, a win would see them push up to 5th depending on Peterbrough's result against Bradford.
There was disappointment for Rob Kiernan and Southend United as their 7 game unbeaten run was put to an end as they suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Seaside strugglers Torquay United. Millwall's John Marquis grabbed the winner 5 minutes after the restart with a good finish,
The defeat sees Phil Brown's side drop to 7th in a very tight top 7 with 4 points separating the Leaders Oxford United with Southend occupying the last play off spot. They'll hope to get back to winning ways as they prepare for the visit of fellow promotion candidates Rochdale who are also on 33 points. A win for either side could see them fire up to 3rd in the League.
There was no game again for Fraser Fyvie this week as Yeovil shared the spoils with fellow strugglers Barnsley as the sides played out a 1-1 draw at Oakwell. Joel Grant gave the Glovers the lead 10 minutes in but Marcus Tudgay put Barnsley back on level terms from the spot after former Latics' midfielder Tomasz Cywka was brought down in the area by James McAllister. The result leaves the glovers a point from safety with a optimistic visit of Blackburn to Huish Park on Saturday. A win could see Gary Johnson's side fire up to 20th.
