It took the Millers just 30 seconds to get off the mark when Josh Pickering looped his shot over keeper Darren Standage from an acute angle. That lead was then extended on thirty-five minutes when skipper Ryan Ordidge slotted home a penalty.

Just ten minutes into the second half and Keyworth were reduced to ten men when Anton Daniels was dismissed for two yellow cards.

Not hindered by the reduction in men it was the hosts who scored next when Scott Wood fired home from close range.
