A lacklustre performance from the Silkmen hindered by a poor linesman saw the Silkmen beaten 2-0 at Rotherham’s eerie Don Valley Stadium.

The Silkmen were struggling to make any real inroads into the Millers defence and went a goal behind when a quick free kick in their own half sent Rotherham attacking down the right. The ball into the box was dispatched by Mark Hudson to give Brain no chance after 12 minutes.

The Blues tried to get back into the game but couldn’t find any passing flow and the long-balls were not finding their mark.

But the Silkmen did have the ball in the back of the net when Emile Sinclair controlled Nat Brown’s through ball, turned his defender and finished neatly, but was shocked to see the linesman flagging for offside.

The same linesman would make a difference in the second half as Reid put the game beyond doubt. The Miller’s player seemed to have been offside in the build up, coming onside to retreive the ball, before chipping Jon Brain.

He was adjudged to have not been either interfering with play or looking to gain an advantage.. Whichis strange as he scored!

But the Silkmen couldn’t get anything back out of the game and even with a very atacking line-up, were unable to carve out any genuine chances.
