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.

Five Points Off the Play-Offs and Mick Keeps Rolling Along by SpiritOfJohn
If Mick had gone for the win on Teesside and picked up another three points, I suspect that Marcus Evans would have been instructing his team of overworked lawyers to draw up a new contract for the incumbent manager.
Phoenix From the Flames by SaleAway
The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.
