2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 12

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 12 is a superb away win which brought up a landmark occasion.

Peterborough United 0 Rotherham 1 (22/3/14)

What better way to celebrate Steve Evans’ 100th game in charge of Rotherham than a gritty away win at a play-off rival.

The success encapsulated exactly how far the Millers had come during Evans century as they went a long way to booking their top-six position against a team the boss had declared “champions elect” earlier in the season.

This match was perhaps a step away from the high energy, marauding performances that had taken the division by storm in 2014, instead a display which showcased their work-rate, discipline and desire to succeed.

It was an open game in the first half with Nicky Ajose going close for Posh and Alex Revell looping a header just over but the Millers wrestled the upper hand in first-half stoppage time.

It was usually at the end of the second half where they were used to doing their business but the got a tonic on the stroke of half-time when Kieran Agard slotted home from the spot after he was fouled in the area.

A second-half onslaught from the hosts was on the cards but it was the Millers who had a chance to double their lead but Nicky Adams was denied when being sent clear by Ben Pringle.

And then the Millers did have to stand up to some strong home pressure, with Adam Collin superbly denying Conor Washington, Britt Assombalonga firing over and Craig Morgan clearing off the line.

But the Millers held on and registered a vital away win which left Evans with a sweet taste of success.

Rotherham: Collin, Tavernier, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Adams (Hitchcock 69), Frecklington, Smallwood, Pringle, Agard, Revell

Attendance: 6,625 (1,333 Millers)

One to remember: Adam Collin’s superb save kept the Millers in front when he spread himself and denied Conor Washington.

One to forget: Nicky Adams, who was not long for the Millers world, missed a great chance to put the game to bed in the second half.
