2014 Millers Matchday Advent Calendar - Number 16

It’s Millers Time is paying tribute to a fantastic 2014 for Rotherham with a footballing advent calendar.

In each day of December, leading up to Christmas Day, we are looking back at a game from this year.

Behind window number 16 is a record-breaking League One win.

Rotherham 6 Notts County 0 (1/3/14)

A result like this had been a long time coming for Rotherham during their 2013/14 season.

Many times they'd had teams on the rack at New York, but were unable to put them to the sword amid a few months of frustration.

Then a hapless Notts County, with the softest of underbellies, turned up and the Millers went to town, delivering their biggest win at their new home and the biggest anywhere since 1997.

The writing was on the wall for the Magpies in the 12th minute when the imperious James Tavernier curled a 20-yard free-kick over the wall and into the net.

The hosts sensed blood and blitzed their sorry visitors into submission, taking a 4-0 lead by just the 29th minute.

Haris Vuckic made it 2-0 when his shot from eight yards was deflected in and soon after Alex Revell whacked a 25-yard shot low into the bottom corner.

Kieran Agard made it a half-hour to remember when he stroked home a penalty after he was hauled down by goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.

The second half was plain-sailing for Steve Evans' men and the two loan strikers added to the scoreline.

Vuckic got his second with a fine attacking goal which started in the right-back position with Tavernier and ended with his Newcastle team-mate whacking in another deflected effort from 16 yards.

And Tom Hitchcock rounded the scoring off with a poacher's goal as Nicky Adams' cross was deflected onto the knee of the QPR man and into the net.

It was the Millers' biggest-ever win at their superb new home and that made it nine games without defeat.

Rotherham: Collin, Tavernier, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Agard, Frecklington (O'Connor 64), Smallwood, Pringle (Adams 71), Vuckic (Hitchcock 76), Revell

Attendance: 8,838

One to remember: Revell had some new-found confidence and his 25-yard effort was the best of the six for the Millers.

One to forget: Vuckic and Tavernier's dreadful dancing celebration after the Slovenian's two goals.
