Match Report

Pools fans were left frustrated and bewildered as Rotherham completed a smash-and-grab raid to eliminate Colin Cooper's men from this season's Johnstone's Paints Trophy. The Millers took the lead inside the first ten minutes when giant striker Tom Eaves found space to head home from a corner. From that point onwards the first half was one-way traffic as Pools produced some of their best football of the season. Despite almost constant pressure in the face of some roughhouse tactics from the opposition, Pools scored just once in the half, with ex-Miller Andy Monkhouse finishing off a nice move. Visiting keeper Adam Collin saved well from Luke James, James Poole and Monkhouse before a speculative Lee Frecklington effort on the stroke of half-time was cruelly deflected past Scott Flinders by Kieran Agard. The second half followed a similar pattern to the first but Pools just couldn't force the ball past Collin. Jack Baldwin came closest to sending the tie to penalties but his late header crashed against the bar.

They are middle of League One and we have absolutely battered them. We dominated the possession, attempts on goal, and their keeper has made three or four vital saves and we have hit the woodwork. You just don’t know what to say. We put the performance in that we needed too but couldn’t get the result.
- Jack Baldwin
I think luck played its part in us getting a win tonight, we won't kid ourselves as they played us off the park at times. We showed great effort and desire in the last 15 minutes after our performance was poor, our ball retention was poor and our whole defence and shape didn't look right tonight.
- Steve Evans
