2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 21

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 21 is a superb Championship home win.

Rotherham 2 Blackburn Rovers 0 (30/9/14)

This has to go down as one of the famous wins at Rotherham's new home as they coasted to the points.

Steve Evans may have dressed it up as a victory over “former Premier League champions”, which is technically correct, but it highlighted the progress the Millers had made and had a cup-tie feel to it.

As a result, the hosts were unsurprisingly quick out of the blocks and took a fifth-minute lead.

Blackburn failed to clear a corner and Kari Arnason struck the loose ball into the bottom corner for a rare goal.

The second goal came just after the half-hour and proved that hard work does pay off.

Ben Pringle's relentless chasing of Craig Conway forced him into a hasty backpass that put keeper Jason Steele under pressure and his clearance clattered into the legs of Luciano Becchio and into the net.

Blackburn, shell-shocked by their first-half battering, came to life after the break and could have made a game of it.

Shane Duffy's header was cleared off the line by Pringle, while hot-shot Jordan Rhodes uncharacteristically fluffed his lines from just three yards.

Had that gone in, it would have set up a tense finale, but instead the Millers held out for a second home win of the season.

Rotherham: Collin, Richardson, Broadfoot (Morgan 10), Arnason, Skarz, Taylor (Wordsworth 60), Green, Frecklington, Pringle, Becchio, Revell (Bowery 83)

Attendance: 9,525

One to remember: Ben Pringle's hard work paid off for the second goal.

One to forget: Kirk Broadfoot suffered injury woe in just the fifth minute and had to go off.
