Evans can sleep easy as Millers roar back

ROTHER­HAM ......4 AC­CRING­TON ....1

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By John Brind­ley

That tem­po­rar­ily took the wind out of the Millers’ sails as the sec­ond half started in more stut­ter­ing fash­ion, be­fore Evans made a dou­ble change just be­fore the hour.

The in­tro­duc­tion of Nardiello stead­ied the ship as he headed the Millers back in front when Stan­ley failed to deal with Kari Ar­na­son’s throw in.

Andy War­ring­ton made cru­cial saves from James Beat­tie and Lee Molyneux be­fore Nardiello’s fine stoop­ing header and a 20-yarder from the classy Michael O’Connor sealed a blis­ter­ing and de­ci­sive 10minute spell.

Beat­tie was taken off shortly af­ter his best two mo­ments of the game and Stan­ley fin­ished well beaten.

Ac­cring­ton man­ager Leam Richard­son said:“We were in the game and com­peted well at times. “We knew we would come un­der pres­sure at a place like this but it’s dis­ap­point­ing to con­cede sloppy goals at set pieces.We’ve got to learn and learn fast.

“We came off at 1-1 at half-time quite con­fi­dent but it’s typ­i­cal of the way things have been go­ing that we had a cou­ple of near misses then con­cede quickly at the other end.

“We knew we were fac­ing a tough De­cem­ber and that’s the way it is prov­ing. But we will come back and come back stronger.”
