Match Preview

Fenton hoping to be back Nick Fenton is hopeful of overcoming a back injury to feature in Rotherham's clash with Crewe at the Don Valley Stadium. The 31-year-old defender did not train with the Millers on Thursday due to the knock but he hopes to be fit for the npower League Two fixture. As well as a possible defensive reshuffle, Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore has some decisions to make regarding his midfield. Jason Taylor returns from suspension for the match and comes back into the side, while Moore is pondering handing on-loan Arsenal man Mark Randall a start. One player who will not feature in the clash, however, is Ryan Cresswell, who is training again after breaking his collarbone but is not yet match fit. Shaun Miller will miss out for Crewe. The striker did not reappear for the second half of the 6-2 defeat to Northampton on Tuesday night due to a thigh strain. Joel Grant replaced Miller at Sixfields and he is likely to come back into the starting line up with Clayton Donaldson still suspended. AJ Leitch-Smith, who opened the scoring against the Cobblers, is fit. He was only taken off as a precaution at Northampton as he begins to be reintroduced to first-team football following his lay-off. Captain David Artell played the full 90 minutes in midweek and the defender suffered no reaction to his recent calf problem. Changes at the back could be in order though, after letting in six goals, with Adam Dugdale and Mat Mitchel-King available to boss Dario Gradi.

Match Report

Millers leave it late Two goals in four minutes late in the day kept Rotherham's promotion push on target with a thoroughly deserved 3-1 victory over rivals Crewe. After an even first with neither goalkeeper under any real pressure, Rotherham got the break two minutes before half-time. Rotherham nearly broke the deadlock when Ryan Taylor headed just wide from Tom Newey's cross after 27 minutes and two minutes later Adam Le Fondre went close from Taylor's head on. Crewe came closest after 19 minutes when Byron Moore broke clear on the right and his cross flashed across the face of the goal with no-one to apply the finishing touch. But with time running out before the break Rotherham grabbed the lead. Crewe cleared the danger from Nicky Law's corner but Marcus Marshall whipped in a second cross from the left and skipper Nick Fenton - still forward for the corner - drilled a low shot past Rhys Taylor from 10 yards out. Crewe almost grabbed an equaliser nine minutes after the break when only a brilliant tackle by Johnny Mullins denied Ajay Leitch-Smith. But after 62 minutes Leitch-Smith scored an equaliser that should have been ruled out. Lee Bell threaded a ball through, and although Leitch-Smith was clearly offside he was allowed to go on a fire past a helpless Andy Warrington. Rotherham got their reward with two more goals in a dramatic last six minutes. First Le Fondre added his 19th of the season getting to a Ryan Taylor knock down to lift the ball over the keeper and into the net with six minutes remaining. And four minutes later Ryan Taylor broke clear on the right and lashed an absolutely unstoppable shot past Rhys Taylor.
