Palace too strong for Millers

January 19 2002

Palace did the double over Rotherham, this time winning 2-0 with goals from Clinton Morrison and Jamie Smith.

The football wasn't the best as both teams struggled to pass on the Selhurst Park bog and Rotherham defended in numbers, making it a tedious first half.

Alex Kolinko produced two world class saves to deny Alan Lee twice, first from a bullet header from eight yards and then from a Lee 25-yard effort.

Down the other end, Mike Pollitt was on hand to save a far post Dougie Freedman header from a Danny Granville cross.

Palace were lacking width and in the second half, Trevor Francis brought Smith and Julian Gray on for Simon Rodger and Jovan Kirovski.

The move seemed to work as Hayden Mullins released Morrison who fired low past Pollitt in goal in the 55th minute.

Pollitt then saved from Morrison from close range after good work from Freedman and Mullins.

Then Smith got the goal which proved to be the winner 11 minutes from time when he drove home from the right hand side into the far corner from a Granville cross on the left.
