Carlton have so far endured a season filled with lack-lustre performances and disappointing results, but Saturday’s performance will have instilled faith amongst Millers supporters, writes Josh Hodgson.
Hooton and Mellors-Blair made their debuts for the home team and the former opened the scoring mid way through the first half. A well-weighted
ball from Danny Elliot, finding the striker to give him a goal on his debut. Lincoln had chances of their own but at half time it was Carlton who held the 1-0 advantage.
The second half resumed, this time with Lincoln in control and it wasn’t long before the away side found a way through. Jordan Hempenstall equalised for the visitors catching the Carlton defence out of position. This drew a reaction out of the Millers who saw a chance from Eddie Schoenecker cleared off the line.
At the close of the game Hooton almost made his debut brace was it not for a save from Philip McGann in net for United.
1-1 at full time but glimpses of things to come for home fans.
Man of the Match: Aaron Hooton
Entertainment factor: 3/5
