On-Loan Striker Moore Red-Carded as Rotherham Lose
Saturday, 2nd Dec 2017 23:08
On-loan Blues striker Kieffer Moore was red-carded as Rotherham were beaten 2-1 at Bristol Rovers in League One.
Moore, 25, the joint-top scorer in the top four English divisions, was dismissed in the 79th minute when he clashed with Rovers’ defender Lee Brown, who went to ground.
Blues right-back Josh Emmanuel, who is also on loan at the New York Stadium, was not in the 18.
Town boss Mick McCarthy has said he’ll cut Moore’s loan spell short when the transfer window opens and bring him back to Portman Road, unless the Blues receive a “bonkers offer” for the £20,000 January signing from Forest Green Rovers.
As he is facing a three-match ban as a result of today's ordering-off, Torquay-born Moore would play only two more games for the Millers if McCarthy recalls him as soon as the January window opens.
Elsewhere, George Fowler played the full 90 minutes as Aldershot drew 0-0 at Torquay United in the Vanarama National League. As a result, the Shots dropped from top to fourth.
Fellow Blue Adam McDonnell, who along with Fowler extended his spell with the Hampshire side into a fourth month yesterday, missed the game as he was suspended having been sent off during Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Bromley.
Blues defender Chris Smith was in the Chelmsford City side which drew 1-1 at home to Hungerford Town in the National League South.
Keeper Harry Wright kept a clean sheet as East Thurrock United won 3-0 at Welling United in the National League South.
Another young Blues keeper, Nick Hayes, was in the Dunstable Town team which lost 1-0 at Hitchin in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division.

Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
A Driven Individual and - So Far - a Serial Winner by monty_radio
In such a day as this when allowing your new manager and regime 10 games is considered the height of patience and sense and, by some, lenient nonsense, Paul Hurst is naturally incurring fans' spoken and written doubts after seven - albeit with an unrecognisable team.
But We’re Not Playing Derby by NormEmerges
As we head into the derby game against Norwich, it seems curious to name it after a completely different town.
