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.

An Uncomfortable Truth by TBT
The Marcus Evans group of companies numbers over 30 different organisations and having a lame duck subsidiary running at a loss has its merits in terms of taxation.
This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not! by delias_cheesy_flaps
“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
Identity Crisis by andygri
As someone born in the mid 1970s, I am part of the generation that has seen Ipswich Town Football Club move in and out of the footballing limelight over the last 40 years.
Pre-Derby Hope and Hype by TimS
I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.
