ROTHERHAM PUT FIVE PAST SUNDERLAND

Fan First's League One review from weekend 30th of October featuring - Rotherham United and Sunderland


It was a 5-star performance from Rotherham at the weekend as they beat fellow play-off chasers Sunderland 5-1.

A breath-taking performance from Rotherham saw them leapfrog Sunderland in the table in some fashion. A brace for both Michael Smith and Freddie Ladapo along with a goal from Ihiekwe gave Rotherham fans a dream weekend. Sunderland’s afternoon was compounded by a heavy defeat and sending off to McGeady. Picking a man of the match proved a tight one for Rotherham who had all players at a minimum score of 6.99, Michael Smith scored 2 and grabbed an assist and was still only the second highest rated player with an 8.24. It was his strike partner Freddie Ladapo who grabbed man of the match, with his 8.49. An afternoon to forget for Sunderland, McGeady unsurprisingly the lowest scorer of the match with a 3.32 for his dismissal. Luke O’Nien ran him close though scoring a lowly 3.74.

A crazy game unfolded at Fleetwood. With the home side drawing 3-3 with visitors Wycombe Wanderers. The home fans were clearly happy with what they saw from their side, who grabbed a point from 3rdplace Wycombe. It was substitutes Joe Garner and Shaydon Morris fans had to thank for their comeback, with both players coming off the bench and grabbing goals in Fleetwood’s comeback. Garner scoring a 7.24 and Morris a 7.74 for their impacts from the bench.

MK Dons were another of the big winners this weekend, beating Crewe 4-1 away from home. Goals from Eisa, O’Riley, Watters and an own goal from Daniels were enough for the Dons to continue their charge at the play-offs. Matt O’Riley impressed on the day, with the forward picking up an 8.26. It was a disappointing afternoon for Crewe on the other hand, with three out of four defenders scoring below 4.00 from the Crewe faithful. Manager David Artell also scored a low 3.09 after his side suffered such a heavy defeat.
