Rotherham United Academy slipped to a home defeat to Scunthorpe, despite a Ciaran McGuckin strike.
McGuckin – who signed professional terms in the summer – got his named on the scoresheet in the 18th minute but the Millers slipped to defeat.
The U18s were given a further mountain to climb in the game when Rylee Grove was shown a red card in the second half, as the visitors claimed the points.
ACADEMY | Ford, Day, Jenkinson, Bond (Mare 72’), Grove, Warne, Douglas (Clark 86’), Holvey, Hatton (Roddis 65’), McGukin, Nisbett.
