The Millers triumph in the Central League Cup.Rotherham United Reserves continued their recent good form with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Morecambe in the Central League Cup.
A brace from Daniel Nardiello and a further strike from Kieran Agard sealed a straight forward victory, watched by assistant manager Paul Raynor.
“We wanted to get Daniel some more game time, and he got himself a couple of goals,” Raynor told www.themillers.co.uk
“We felt it was important to get some of the lads who haven’t had a lot of time on the pitch recently some match time, and it proved to be a good exercise for us.
“Nards took his goals extremely well, as did Kieran, whilst we got another 90 minutes into Scott Shearer so on the whole it was a good day.”
The Millers fielded a mixture of professionals and academy prospects, with the likes of Craig Morgan and Kayode Odejayi also gaining some valuable match time.
“Another 90 minutes for Craig which was important because obviously he has been out of action for a while,” added Raynor
“These reserve games are ideal for keeping the lads ticking over, Craig isn’t the only one who has benefitted today, it was a useful exercise all round.”
