2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 20

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 20 is a complete performance in League One.

Rotherham 3 Brentford 0 (25/3/14)

This was as close to the perfect performance as possible for the Millers and what better time to do it than against a promotion rival.

Full of attacking endeavour and resolute defending they swatted the second-placed Brentford aside as if they were an irritation and in doing so firmly put themselves in the automatic promotion race.

Steve Evans' men were helped by being awarded a 14th-minute penalty when James Tavernier was tripped by Alan Judge and Kieran Agard stroked home from the spot.

It was a vintage display from the hosts and Alex Revell and Tavernier could have doubled their lead before Agard did so on the stroke of half-time and this was a superb team goal.

Revell won a flick down the left which Agard anticipated and he surged into the area before laying back to Ben Pringle.

Pringle then rolled in a superb ball to Nicky Adams, who popped it back first time to Agard to curl into the top corner from 12 yards.

The second half was a comfortable affair for the Millers and they could have racked up a cricket score, but Agard twice missed the chance to bag a hat-trick and Adams also wasted a good chance.

Haris Vuckic did put some gloss on proceedings at the death when he struck a low third into the bottom corner.

Regardless of what the result meant in terms of a potential automatic promotion bid, the nature of the victory and the performance deserved savouring for what it was – a superb team display.

Rotherham: Collin, Tavernier, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Adams, Frecklington, Smallwood, Pringle (Milsom 88), Agard (Vuckic 89), Revell

Attendance: 8,365

One to remember: A superb team goal on the stroke of half-time gave Kieran Agard his 20th goal of the season.

One to forget: Nicky Adams missed a fine chance at the start of the second half.
