2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 19

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 19 is the only defeat in the countdown,  but it was a thrilling, thrilling match.

Wolves 6 Rotherham 4 (18/4/14)

There's not many times you can concede six goals and still walk away from a game with massive credit.

But Rotherham could for the part they played in a thrilling match that had everything and more between two sides destined for success.

Delayed kick-offs, two hat-tricks, five goals in the final 10 minutes and pitch invasions - there was so much to talk about.

It all started so well for the Millers as they took a 14th-minuted lead when Kieran Agard glanced in Michael O'Connor's corner to become the first team to score against Wolves in 392 minutes.

But Kenny Jackett's men had been rampant all season and hit their visitors with a three-goal blast in 17 minutes.

Nouha Dicko, who Millers fans knew all too well, inevitably got on the scoresheet, bagging two, while Dave Edwards made it three just before the break.

Steve Evans' men never knew when they were beaten and got back into the game when Agard grabbed his second just after the hour after wriggling free.

It looked as if a comeback would not be on the cards as Wolves extended their two-goal lead after 80 minutes as Dicko completed his hat-trick.

But the drama had only just began. First Joe Skarz, the unlikeliest of all scorers, pulled one back with seven minutes remaining and five minutes later, Agard sent the travelling hordes crazy when he completed his hat-trick and made it an astonishing 4-4.

Wolves weren't done, though, and straight from kick-off they regained their lead when Sam Ricketts whacked in a 20-yard effort into the top corner.

And with the Millers chasing another leveller, the hosts broke away deep into stoppage time and made it 6-4 when Kevin McDonald bagged.

Cue a massive pitch invasion as Wolves celebrated promotion, drowning out the Millers, but their efforts in an epic game will never be forgotten.

Rotherham: Collin, Tavernier, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Agard, O’Connor (Hitchcock 77), Smallwood, Adams, Vuckic (Pringle 69), Revell (Thomas 65)

Attendance: 30,110 (1,972 Millers)

One to remember: A stunning showcase of never-say-die spirit that saw the Millers come from 4-2 down to 4-4.

One to forget: A number of Millers fans missed the opening goal after horrific traffic on the M1 caused a 10-minute delay to kick-off.
