Vale and Millers share stalemate

Vale showed the greater hunger in a low key first-half as John McCombe and Kyle Perry both squandered decent opportunities.
But Rotherham almost took a 31st minute lead when Drewe Broughton’s header smashed against a post and ex-Vale man Micky Cummins fired the rebound too high.
Cummins’ unhappy afternoon was complete eight minutes into the second half when he was stretchered off with a knee injury and replaced by Danny Harrison.
And the visitors finally began to build a head of steam as Vale’s teenage goalkeeper Chris Martin raced from goal to make a fine save from Reuben Reid.
Reid’s pace and Broughton’s hold up play were causing some problems for the home defence, but Rotherham were lacking a final touch. Both managers used all of their substitutions in a forlorn attempt to spice up the action and many supporters were making their way home well before the final whistle.
