MORE­CAMBE ....2 ROTHER­HAM ......1

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Colin Hen­rys

free-kick into the bot­tom cor­ner on 56 min­utes.

The Millers equalised seven min­utes later when Rev­ell de­flected Lionel Ainsworth’s shot be­yond a stranded Barry Roche.

The vis­i­tors were re­duced to ten men for the last 19 min­utes, how­ever, when Mullins brought An­drew Wright down with the Shrimps’ striker look­ing to get in be­hind the de­fence.

And More­cambe took full ad­van­tage of the ex­tra man when El­li­son rose high­est to head sub­sti­tute Lewis Alessan­dra’s cross into the top cor­ner in the last minute, to boss Jim Bent­ley's de­light.

“We’ve pinched a win­ner at the end in great cir­cum­stances,” he said.

“Kev, against his old club in in­jury time, and when it left his head there’s the moment of si­lence – that’s what you get in­volved in foot­ball for.

“It’s al­ways nice to win a game of foot­ball and that sets us up nicely now.

“We’ve been on poor form re­cently so it's im­por­tant to get back to win­ning ways. As far as I’m con­cerned there are three cup fi­nals coming up and I want to get nine points out of them and fin­ish the sea­son as strongly as pos­si­ble.

“I’ve asked for a re­sponse and they’ve cer­tainly given us that. They’ve stood up and been counted.”
