Rotherham United were looking to continue their successful sequence of pre-season results when Bolton Wanderers provided the opposition at New York Stadium tonight.
Steve Evans was pitting his wits against fellow Scot Dougie Freedman as the Millers aimed to carry on from their successful week in Scotland that saw them win two of their three games, and draw the other one.
Going into tonight the Millers were unbeaten in their four outings so far, but looked to be in for their toughest test yet against Bolton.
ROTHERHAM UNITED: Shearer, Brindley, Morgan, Davis, Skarz, Worrall, Frecklington, Arnason, Pringle, Nardiello, Revell.
Subs: Collin, Mullins, O’Connor, Hylton, Bradley, Milsom, Noble, Agard, Tidser, Rose, Walker, Rowe.
BOLTON WANDERERS: Bogdan, Mears, Mills, Bolger, Ream, Andrews, Gregus, Hall, Lester, Sordell, Wilkinson.
Subs: Lynch, Eagles, Knight, Baptiste, Riley, Pratley, Tierney, C Davies, Odelusi, Medo, Trialist, Kamara, Pratley.
It meant a first sighting for Millers fans of new signing David Worrall and he was soon in action, turning and shooting over from 25 yards.
