The gulf between the Dean Court club and some of their League Two rivals was demonstrated again earlier this week.
While Cherries are unable to enhance their resources by dipping into the transfer market because of their ongoing transfer embargo, this weekends opponents splashed out a six-figure sum on talented striker Le Fondre.
However, the frontman who completed his move from Rochdale on Tuesday, appears likely to have to bide his time for the opportunity to make an impression, such is the depth of Rotherhams squad.
Discussing his new signing, Millers manager Mark Robins said: Im delighted weve got him because, looking at his record, he is a 20-goals-a-season man.
We hope to work with him and that hell settle in quickly but, after the performance the other night (a win over Derby County in the Carling Cup), he mind find it tough to get in.
Le Fondre, 22, added: Rotherham are a progressive club and its clear they are going places.
