With only fifteen fit players to choose from the Cherries kicked off their third successive away game with an attacking intent. However, it was the hosts who the lead in the 26th minute with a powerful header into the top corner that gave Jalal no chance. The Cherries continued to push forward with Pitman and Bradbury both producing good chances, but the visitors could not find their way through before the break.


It took the Cherries just two minutes to even up the contest as Brett Pitman picked up a Steve Fletcher knock down, skipped past a Millers defender and neatly chipped the keeper. With the hour mark approaching Rhoys Wiggins cross was only cleared to Hollands on the edge of the box who struck home to put the visitors in front. Eight minutes later Danny Hollands struck again as he slide in to sweep home yet another Steve Fletcher knock down. Minutes later the home side looked to cut the deficit but striker LeFondre struck the post and the chance was gone. The home side couldn’t find a way past the Cherries with Goulding and Connell coming on late on to help ensure a vital three points and put a dent in the hosts promotion credentials.

Back to his best and scored two to make sure of the 3 pointsGOALS: Pitman, Holland
