READ | Ogbene scoops Mattress Online Man of the Match award against Royals

Following on from the midweek victory at Vale Park, another Irish striker was in good form as the Millers defeated Reading 4-0 at AESSEAL New York Stadium. This time, however, it was Chiedozie Ogbene stealing the headlines.

Rotherham currently sit 8th place after having played 2 games in the Sky Bet Championship, which is a game less than the rest of the league due to the postponement of the away fixture to Coventry on the 7th of August.

However, even with a game less played, the Millers showed no sign of a lack of sharpness as they dismantled Reading in the first half of Saturday’s game.

Chiedozie’s threat was apparent from the moment a ball was kicked – capitalising twice on the mistakes made by the Reading goalkeeper to catch him off his line, with the first instance leading to Conor Washington heading just over the bar - however the second time round, Ogbene would take matters into his own hands and bury it himself.

He completed the most dribbles over the course of the match and was the most fouled player on the pitch.

There were a number of stand-out performances as you would expect – with Chiedozie Ogbene, skipper Richard Wood, Cameron Humphreys and Conor Washington all being nominated for the Mattress Online Man of the Match award. Ogbene received 38% of the public vote, with Cameron Humphreys just behind with 31% of the 876 votes cast.
