Scorers’ Day at Rotherham.
Rotherham County 5 Denaby United 1
In the short space of four days Denaby have met Rotherham County in two matches, and have only managed to score three goals against nine for their opponents.
The team which played at Millmoor yesterday afternoon was distinctly weaker that which did duty at home on Good Friday, for the reason that the Westwoods were not included.
In their latest encounter the County soon got the measure of the other side, and although numerous efforts to score were made in the first half, the luck was against them.
Lang, who was the strong man of the visiting forward line, opened the scoring. The equaliser soon came from Lloyd, and the interval arrived with the teams level.
County found the benefit of the slope in the second half, and while put in some good individual work, it proved to be their business for a large share of the time to be occupied in repelling the attacks of their opponents. Pretty combination play was more noticeable than usual, and Rutherglen, the custodian, and Middleman and Swinburn, his full-backs, had more work than they bargained for.
Three further goals were obtained Lloyd, the performance receiving well-merited recognition: and Hakin added the fifth just before the end came. Denaby made a spurt too late to be of value.
