On-Loan Striker Moore Nets 13th of Season
Saturday, 11th Nov 2017 15:35
On-loan Town striker Kieffer Moore netted his 13th goal of the season in the sixth minute of injury time as Rotherham United claimed a last-gasp 1-1 draw at Doncaster Rovers in League One at lunchtime.
The 25-year-old, who has made 16 league starts and one sub appearance for the Millers this season, remains the top scorer in the top four divisions in England and looks set to have his spell with the South Yorkshiremen cut short by the Blues in January.
Speaking a fortnight ago, Town boss Mick McCarthy said: “The intention was to send him out to see whether he could get games and score goals and then we’d take a view on it. And that’s still the same.
“But, of course, the more he’s scoring goals, the view is that he’s more likely to come back here at Christmas and see whether he can replicate it in the Championship. And that’s my intention, that’s always been my intention.”
In the League One scoring charts Moore continues to lead former Blues Brett Pitman, who later on Saturday afternoon took his total to 11, scoring twice as Portsmouth won 3-2 at Blackpool, and Jack Marriott, who has netted 10 times for Peterborough following his summer switch from Luton.
Fellow Blue Josh Emmanuel started for the Millers at right-back before being subbed in the 74th minute in favour of striker Jonson Clarke-Harris as Rotherham looked for an equaliser, skipper Richard Wood’s own goal having given Doncaster the lead in the 62nd minute.
Meanwhile, Flynn Downes has been named in the starting line-up for the England U19s in their European Championships qualifier agaist Iceland in Bulgaria this afternoon (KO 4.30pm UK time).
Downes, 18, will be winning his third U19s cap. The game can be watched live online via Bulgarian TV.

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.

Most parents use pets to teach children important life lessons. Children become acutely aware of the concepts of growing old and death as they bury their beloved hamster in the back garden.

This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
