Holroyd on form as reserves hit Vale for five
Published : 19 Sep 2011 15:59:37
A strong Millers side saw off Port Vale comfortably this afternoon as they ran out easy 5-1 winners at Roundwood. Striker Chris Holroyd found form as he netted four goals whilst Mark Bradley was also on the scoresheet as the Millers stepped things up after the break. More notably though, defender Johnny Mullins completed his comeback from injury as he played the majority of the match before being substituted, with trialist Stephen Jordan also involved. Holroyd had opened the scoring in the first half before the visitors made it 1-1 with a deflected effort. Luke Foster made it 2-1 after the restart after Holroyd was involved following a left wing centre, before Holroyd himself headed in a Liam Royles cross and then completed his hat-trick. Midfielder Bradley, returning to action from a hamstring strain, then thumped in a fifth before full time to end proceedings. Team: Warrington, Royles, Brown, Jordan, Mullins, Foster, Bradley, Taylor, Holroyd, Foltyn-Brown, Pringle.
