2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 11

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 11 is a topsy-turvy but entertaining home win in League One.

Rotherham 4 Crewe 2 (10/1/14)

Rarely could a Rotherham game last season be called dull.

And the visit of Crewe early in the year was a typical example of the Millers not having it all their own way, yet providing thrilling entertainment.

In a match packed with action they did enough to win and started an unbeaten run that would last three months and cemented a play-off place.

It didn’t start off too well, though, as the Millers fell behind to Brad Inman’s 12th-minute opener.

Alex Revell was then denied by the post virtually straight from kick-off, but the hosts did draw level when Kieran Agard bagged his 13th of the campaign before the break.

The topsy-turvy nature of the game continued as Kevin Mellor restored Crewe’s lead after the restart only for Lee Frecklington to make it 2-2 seven minutes later.

Then came 120 seconds of mayhem that decided the game.

The visitors were given a golden opportunity to take the lead for the third time when they were awarded a penalty. But Adam Collin saved Harry Davis’ effort, the Millers cleared and broke at pace, with Ben Pringle supplying a perfect cross for Revell, who superbly headed home.

Alex had more chances to draw level and Revell hit the woodwork again, before Frecklington put the game to bed with a low finish at the death.

The Millers fans left New York needing to catch their breath, but ultimately seeing an important win as it moved them into a top-six position – one they would not relinquish.

Rotherham: Collin, Bradley (Brindley 89), Addison, Arnason, Tavernier, Agard, Frecklington, Milsom (O’Connor 83), Pringle, Vuckic (Hitchcock 61), Revell

Attendance: 7,737

One to remember: Adam Collin got a taste for penalty saves as he denied Harry Davis and within a minute the Millers were at the other end scoring.

One to forget: Alex Revell’s first-half chance hit the post and then rolled along the line, with the striker also hitting the woodwork after the break.
