2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 2

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 will look back at a game from this year.

Behind window number two is a Championship draw at Norwich.

Norwich City 1 Rotherham 1 (4/10/14)

If ever anyone needs a reality check into just how far the Millers have come in a short space of time they only have to analyse this game.

Two years ago Steve Evans' men were getting thumped 5-0 at Dagenham and losing at home to Barnet and Bristol Rovers, both of whom were bottom of the entire Football League when they visited New York.

Meanwhile, in Norfolk the Canaries were beating Arsenal and Manchester United as they comfortably survived in the Premier League.

So, for the Millers to be just 13 minutes away from a famous victory when the sides met in league action for the first time since 2004 shows what a brilliant journey they have been on.

That said, Evans' men did come under the cosh for large periods and were only kept from falling behind by a miraculous triple save by Adam Collin.

The Millers keeper denied Lewis Grabban and Cameron Jerome twice, the second time when he was laid on the floor recovering from his previous stop, to defy logic.

To make the save even more important, when the Millers finally got the ball cleared, they went up to the other end and won a penalty when Matt Derbyshire was clattered.

Paul Green slotted the spot-kick away and the visitors held that lead until the 77th minute.

Kyle Lafferty's free-kick was deflected into the post, with the rebound falling to Jerome, who could not miss.

The Millers held on, though, and left one of the Premier League old boys with a well-earned point.

Rotherham: Collin, Brindley (Bowery, 71), Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Richardson, Frecklington, Green, Pringle (Clarke-Harris, 66), Revell, Derbyshire (Wordsworth, 79).

Attendance: 24,783

One to remember: Adam Collin's triple save defied logic.

One to forget: Richard Brindley's first appearance since Wembley ended in him limping off and he has not played since.
