Moore on Target Again
Saturday, 30th Sep 2017 17:55
On-loan Blues striker Kieffer Moore continued his early season goalscoring streak netting the only goal as Rotherham beat Northampton 1-0 at the New York Stadium this afternoon.
Moore, who is with the Millers until January but with the Blues having the facility to cut the spell short in January if manager Mick McCarthy wants to bring him back to Portman Road, took his total to nine for the campaign.
Th 25-year-old remains the joint-top scorer in League One alongside former Blues Brett Pitman, now with Portsmouth, and Jack Marriott, who joined Peterborough in the summer.
Rotherham manager Paul Warne was impressed with the way Moore took the 52nd minute close-range opportunity.
“I thought he did well, it was a good finish,” he said. “He could have had, possibly, another couple.
“We’re really pleased with him because he’s a great kid and he works really hard all the time. He’s just one of a great group we’ve got.
“There’s no such thing as an easy goal but it’s good for Kieffer. I’m really pleased he’s playing for us. He’s leading the line well and when he came off he got a great ovation. I’m really pleased for him.
“When I brought him in in the summer, I said he’ll enjoy playing for me because I’m an attacking sort of manager. We’re a bit gung-ho sometimes but he’ll always have loads of chances to score. That’s proved to be the case.”
Blues right-back Josh Emmanuel, who is also on loan with the Millers for the season, was an unused sub.
Elsewhere, midfielder Adam McDonnell played the full game and George Fowler the first 54 minutes at right-back as Aldershot were beaten 2-0 at Macclesfield in the Vanarama National League.
The duo, whose loan spells have been extended to the end of October, were making their sixth appearances for the Shots.
Central defender Chris Smith made the first start of his loan spell at Chelmsford City as the Clarets beat Weymouth 2-1 at home in the FA Cup third qualifying round.

It’s a bizarre situation I find myself in as an Ipswich fan at the moment.
The Entertainment is Back, and So Am I by JollyJourno
First up, a confession. I didn't attend a single Ipswich Town game last season. It was the first season in about a decade that I completely sat out.
Going Down to Portman Road to See Bob Robson's Aces by Retiredtypes

What's the Stay Away Fans' Excuse Now? An Open Letter to Certain Town Fans by MikeDove33
To my fellow Ipswich Town fans, I’ve often thought about writing an open letter to other Ipswich fans over the past 1-2 years. I always eventually went off the idea, due to the fact that the negativity it may have received from certain fans who only seem to thrive on matters of a negative nature at ITFC, would outweigh any positive outcome.
A Question of Balance by HarryfromBath
There have been a number of interesting threads on the forum in recent weeks juxtaposing our decent start this season with, well, everything we had to endure in the last campaign.
