Rotherham United manager Alan Knill has let it be known through one local newspaper how much he appreciated the support the players got on tuesday night.

Some 125 hardy souls (me included) made the fairly long trip up to Hartlepool to watch the millers take part in what many would consider to be a waste of time the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.

Speaking of the fans Rotherham boss Alan Knill is quoted as saying that he would like to give his personal thanks to those who made the trip and wished he could have given them the result they wanted.

On a personal note all i can say to that is that the fans don`t mind travelling as long as the players put the effort in, but that was sadly lacking on this occasion.
