Preview: Rotherham United v Bury

A look ahead to the Shakers first visit to the AESSEAL New York Stadium

8 September 2017

A defeat at home last weekend, albeit to a world-class free-kick, but there were signs within the game that this long-awaited gelling process is clicking in.  Crisp passing amongst the lads, strong challenges made and won and signs of that flowing football.
 
There were positives to take from the game, and those positives have been worked on and processed throughout a productive weekend at Carrington.  Only a stunning free-kick in the dying minutes separated the two sides and, in all honesty, a draw would have been the preferred option until the 86th-minute strike.
 
Another boost to Lee Clark is the return to training, or near to return, of several key players coming back from injury.  This weekend’s game may be too close to see the likes Eoghan O’Connell or Jay O’Shea, and we could probably include Tuesday night at Fleetwood in that, but they are a lot closer than they were this time last week.
 
Over the next four weeks, the lads have nine games and its pretty much Saturday – Tuesday for the next month. It’s the time of a season where an injury free squad will be made most welcome at any training ground up and down the country. 
 
Stephen Dawson is the only player that will not be involved in any of these nine games. The remaining players should be in and around the squad for the next month with seven of those games coming in League action.  That’s 18 points available to collect from now until the final game of the month against MK Dons on the 30th. Hopefully, things will be a whole lot clearer come the end of the month and with some signs of better things to come from last weekend.
 
One player that did make a return from injury is Chris Maguire.  His troublesome thigh problem is a thing of the past and he got 30 minutes in last weekend, followed by a full week’s worth of training.  Any football coach will tell you that a full week’s training will do nothing to help match fitness, and match fitness is what Maguire needs more than anything.  You only get match fit, by playing a match.
 
Another name to add to the squad, and a name that’s hardly been mentioned by anyone is that of Mihai Dobre, or as he is known to many – Alex.  He will arrive in the UK today (Friday) and travel to the Shakers’ training ground to meet with the Manager and coaching staff before travelling to Rotherham. Whether he will be involved within the 18 for Saturday’s game will be purely down to the Manager and the lads’ condition after travelling from his International duties with Romania.
 
We’ve been told of his electric pace down either flank, his ability to run with the ball and you can pretty much guarantee that any product of the Bournemouth coaching staff will possess the ability to impress.  Time will be a factor in this one, will he be involved at the weekend – or will Lee Clark keep him under wraps until he is rested, has had a few training sessions with the lads and has had the chance to impress his new teammates.
 
There is a lot of disappointment about, but there’s no sign of panic from anyone.  The positive signs from Saturday have been used and an attempt made to amplify those positive signs.  There were improvements, there are more to come.
 
The odds for Saturday’s game are not that favourable for us, we may just upset one or two in the coming days and weeks as that improvement is put into further practice…
 
Lee Clark ahead of Saturdays game
 
Last time out: Rotherham United 0 Bury 0 – 12 March 2011

Promotion challengers Rotherham United and Bury played out a goalless draw at the Don Valley Stadium.
 
In a quiet first half, Ryan Taylor and Johnny Mullins went close for the home side, while Bury's Kyle Bennett saw his left-foot shot go just wide.
 
The visitors had the better chances in the second half - Tom Lees fired wide from six yards out and David Worrall hit the side netting.
 
Rotherham move up to fourth in League Two, while Bury remain second.
 
Rotherham United boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:  "I think we did deserve to win it. To be honest they have had probably the best chance of the game but we had a lot of chances. We didn't get the break.
 
"They're second in the table but we're a better team."
 
Bury Manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Manchester:   "I thought it was a fair result. Both teams had chances, but both lacked that bit of quality needed to take the three points. It keeps them five points behind us with a game in hand and if you finish five points above Rotherham, that's a pretty good season you've had.
 
"We can play a lot better, but not to lose and a clean sheet is great for us."
 
Referee:  Saturday’s referee is Mr Christopher Sarginson from Staffordshire
 
So far this season, Christopher has taken charge of six games – showing 17 yellow cards and two red cards.  His last game was the EFL Sky Bet League Two game between Grimsby Town and Crewe Alexandra last weekend.  The game finished as a 1-0 home win and four yellow cards were shown.
 
His last involvement in a Bury game was on 1 March 2016 and a 3-1 win against Peterborough United at Gigg Lane.  With goals from Ryan Lowe, Leon Clarke and Andrew Tutte.  Four yellow cards were shown with Peterborough’s Ricardo Santos also shown a red card.

Report: Rotherham United 3 Bury 2

Goals from Jermaine Beckford and Nathan Cameron are not enough as Shakers suffer defeat at Rotherham

9 September 2017

Lee Clark named an unchanged starting eleven for the first time this season, though made changes to the bench with Mihai Dobre and Callum Reilly named in place of Tsun Dai and Joe Skarz.
 
Bury began the game brightly and created the first half chance of the afternoon, a great run from Harry Bunn down the flank saw him play a quick one two with Ryan Lowe, before he continued his run across the face of the Millers area, but unable to find the space for a shot, he eventually lost his momentum and allowed the home defence to hook the ball clear.
 
Rotherham’s first chance came on four minutes with Will Vaulks connecting with a cross from Taylor.  His first-time shot flew through the Shaker's defence, though fortunately straight at keeper Joe Murphy, who collected and held the ball.  Moments later, another curling ball into the box from Jon Taylor saw Nathan Cameron stretching to somehow connect with the ball and hook it over the bar from the edge of the box for a Rotherham corner.
 
Joe Murphy kept the Shakers in the game twice within the first ten minutes of the game starting, the first when a close-range drive from Moore brought an instant reaction from Murphy as he beat the ball away with the palm of his hands.  Moments later, and with Rotherham building momentum, the ball fell to Williams on the edge of the box.  His venomous drive at goal brought a stunning save from the Shaker's custodian as he somehow dived, twisted and palmed the ball over the bar.
 
Jermaine Beckford tested debutant keeper Rodak on 15 minutes with a crisp shot from the edge of the box, though in truth, Rodak saw the shot coming and dived smartly to smother the shot.
 
The home side took the lead on 19 minutes when a long diagonal ball fell to Moore, who suddenly found the time and space to control it within the Shakers area before calmly slotting it across Murphy and into the opposite corner.
 
Last weekend we saw signs of Harry Bunn’s attacking prowess with a few raids down the wing with the ball.  He carried on where he left off this weekend with another good run on 28 minutes.  Taking the ball into the corner, beating two defenders in the process, but when the ball finally came into the box, the only coloured shirts on hand were red shirts, who easily cleared.
 
Bury got back in the game on 33 minutes.  Some great link up play between Edwards and Ryan Lowe in the corner, eventually saw the Shakers player coach whip a delightful cross into the box that Jermaine Beckford buried into the bottom corner with a rasping header.
 
Half time duly arrived though it was to be just as entertaining as it later emerged that manager Lee Clark had been sent to the stands for an altercation with referee Chris Sarginson during the break. An event that Lee Clark later apologised for.
 
The home side went back in front on 53 minutes when Jon Taylor delivered another stunning ball into the box.  Kieffer Moore rose above all to firmly plant his head through the ball and into the back of the goal.
 
A Rotherham free kick on 62 minutes almost produced another goal.  Jon Taylor took the dead ball from a very acute angle in the corner and drove a ferocious shot, at goal, that saw Joe Murphy dive as the ball flew across his goal at pace, but drifted out of play on the far side for a goal kick.
 
Bury pressed for a while and applied some pressure on the home side and on 67 minutes got their reward.  A great delivery from Bunn was flicked on by Beckford to the far post, where Nathan Cameron throw his body at the ball and connected with a stunning diving header to ram the ball home to make it all square.
 
Cameron showed his passion again moments later when he rose to head a ball clear, beating Taylor to the header.  As he collapsed on the floor from the challenge, Moore took a swipe at the ball and sent a goal bound effort away at pace.  Cameron threw his body at the chance to block the effort, whilst he was dragging himself back to his feet.
 
Rotherham won the game with less than 90 seconds on the clock.  A ball across the box found substitute Towell, he took one touch before lashing an unstoppable drive into the bottom corner for their third goal of the afternoon.  Despite five minutes of additional time, the Shakers were unable to test keeper Rodak and the game finished with a 3-2 defeat.
