2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 14

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 eight is a six-goal Championship thriller where victory was thrown away.

Rotherham 3 Fulham 3 (21/10/14)

When the fixtures were released in June, most people would have been happy with a 3-3 draw at home to Fulham, freshly out of the Premier League.

But the fact that the Millers viewed this as two points dropped highlighted just how far they have come over the last few years.

Although these are games that Steve Evans’ men notoriously do well in, their display was still one full of enterprise and endeavour, with the only blight the inability to hold on to a lead they earned three times.

The first advantage came just before the half-hour when Paul Taylor’s shot clipped the heels of Alex Revell and went into the net.

But the lead was short-lived as Ross McCormack converted a controversial penalty five minutes later.

The Millers went ahead for the second time 10 minutes after the restart when Jonson Clarke-Harris superbly flicked home Ben Pringle’s cross.

Again Fulham responded quickly and made it 2-2 when Cauley Woodrow superbly cut in from the left and curled into the top corner.

It looked as if the hosts had done enough when they carved out another lead with just four minutes to go when Pringle’s low shot was turned into his own net by Cottagers defender Nikolay Bodurov.

But some slack marking from a 90th-minute corner handed Fulham yet another lifeline as Dan Burn headed home to make it 3-3.

That’s how it ended and the Millers were left to rue two dropped points.

Rotherham: Collin, Richardson, Morgan, Arnason, Taylor (Smallwood 89), Frecklington, Green, Pringle, Clarke-Harris (Derbyshire 78), Revell

One to remember: Clarke-Harris added to his growing reputation with a fine finish to put the Millers ahead at 2-1.

One to forget: Some slack marking from Kari Arnason at the death allowed Dan Burn a free header and he stole two points from the Millers.
