ROTHERHAM 1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 0: No goals, no points as Cherries 10 points from safety

By -

FOOTBALL LEAGUE TWO | 17th January 2009
GOALS: None

The Cherries failed to pick up any points at fellow deductees Rotherham as a single goal separated the sides.

Eddie Howe’s second game in charge saw a tentative start, but 18 minutes in Mark Hudson cracked home a great volley and what was to prove to be the only goal of the game.

HALF-TIME 0-1

Connell and Ward replaced Partington and Guyett at the beginning of the half with Howe switching to a 4-4-2. Just past the hour Danny Hollands got himself booked and it only took him another couple of minutes to get a second yellow.

Most of the action was saved for the end of the game as Rotherham clipped the crossbar, Moseley slid the ball agonisingly wide and Connell had a goal disallowed.

MATCH RATING: 5/10
