Big Match Review - Rotherham 0 Barnet 0

Rotherham United 0-0 Barnet
Saturday March 5, Don Valley Stadium, (Att:3,566)

Struggling Barnet picked up a precious point in their battle against the drop as they frustrated a promotion-hunting Rotherham side who ended the contest with ten men.

The Millers dominated proceedings in the first period, with Adam Le Fondre being the first to test Bees keeper Jake Cole before Tom Newey also saw an effort saved.

Jason Taylor then saw another shot stopped by the Barnet custodian as Ronnie Moore's men continued to press for a goal before the break.

After the interval, the South Yorkshire outfit continued to test their opponents , but struggled to make the breakthrough.

That frustration to score boiled over on 70 minutes when Newey saw red after an altercation with the visitors' Izale McLeod.

With a numerical advantage, the Londoners pushed forwards late on in search of an unlikely winner and went close when United keeper Andy Warrington did well to tip a long range effort from Jordan Parkes over.

Warrington was again called on upon to ensure Rotherham earned a point - tipping over Sam Deering's drive to deny the Bees.

A point apiece sees Rotherham remain just outside the automatic promotion places in 4th. Just goal difference is keeping struggling Barnet from bottom spot though.
