A goal in each half booked The Millers a Notts Senior Cup final date with Basford United at Meadow Lane. They opened the scoring in the 17th minute when Danny Gordon fired home a penalty after Niall Davey was upended in the box. 
The tie was sealed early in the second half when a corner kick from Gordon was turned into his own net by Daniel Camm at the near post.

For the first time in what seems like an eternity I was reunited with the “NE Celeb Groundhopping Couple” for a midweek jaunt. 
We arrived at The Freeman in Carlton at 5.30 for bait and beer, before the short ten minute drive to the ground in Gedling. 
These midweek trips meant it’s back to burning the candle at both ends, getting into bed at 1am then up again for graft at 5.20am.
I don't mind this at all, because of changes at work, midweek matches are now the easiest way for me to bag a new ground.
