CHANCE AFTER CHANCE GOES BEGGING AS MILLERS GO DOWN TO SPORTING KHALSA BUT AT LEAST CLIFF IS ON THE WAY !
On a cold and bitterly winters night at Sporting Khalsa , Carlton took a first half lead through substitute Danny Elliot, a stunning strike indeed !
Carlton looked in control but Khalsa upped the antsy in the second half and Carlton fell away conceding 2 goals including an equaliser from a header that saw the Khalsa player completely unmarked in front of goal.
Carlton rallied at 2-1 down and missed at least 4 guilt edge chances in the final minutes, one at least of those chances should have been converted to give the Millers a point, but it was not to be and the once again impressive away support who had stood behind the goal in the monsoon conditions in the second half went home on this occasion gutted that their team had not forced an equaliser.
Another concern is a mounting injury list with both Martin Ball and Tom Maddison going off with what looked like concerning injuries, Maddson in particular looked in a bad way!
Spirits will hopefully be lifted on Friday night when “Sir Cliff as if” returns to the ground for a full on Christmas set, admission is just £10 for what should be a memorable evening and everyone is invited to come and support this latest crucial Christmas fund raiser.
Saturday sees the Millers back on the road with a visit to Bedworth United, a team who sit just 3 places in the table below them with an excellent home record, so the tests just keep on coming!
