Rotherham United 0-1 Mansfield Town
12 July 2006

Stags got their Pre-Season off to a very 'positive' start this morning against Rotherham United in a behind closed doors friendly.

Peter Shirtliff's lads won the game 1-0 over the ninety minutes after playing three thirty minute segments and the management duo of Shirtliff and Paul Holland were delighted at the display of all the players on the pitch.

"It was a very positive start to the PreSeason campaign. All the lads had a good work out and did well. The three trialist keepers all looked sharp and the new signings seemed to fit in the rest of the team. All in all it was a good days work" said assistant manager Paul Holland.

The single goal came from a Simon Brown effort who narrowly missed out on a second marking his return to fitness after missing the latter part of last season to injury woes.

In the first pre-season match of the new campaign, Rotherham United were beaten 1-0 by Mansfield Town at the Hooton Lodge training ground this morning.

The goal game midway through the second of the three 30 minutes periods the teams played and it followed a defensive mistake.

Apart from Pablo Mills who was attending a funeral, all the Millers squad took part in the game while manager Alan Knill wasn't too concerned about the result as he stated that at this stage of the season it's all about striving for maximum match fitness.
