2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 22

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 and we're nearly at the end.

Behind window number 22 is is the night New York Stadium became the Kingdom of Yorkshire.

Rotherham 2 Leeds United 1 (19/10/14)

Rotherham proved that it was fortress New York in Yorkshire derbies as Leeds followed in the footsteps of Bradford City, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United by being beaten by the Millers.

This win for Steve Evans' men came courtesy of a superb second-half performance where Jonson Clarke-Harris gave a glimpse of what he could deliver.

The Millers notoriously start these sort of games like a bat out of hell, but struggled against a Leeds team who looked dangerous going forward.

Matt Derbyshire had missed a good chance to put the hosts ahead when he fired wide after things opened up for him in the box and Leeds took advantage on the half-hour.

Souleymane Doukara slipped the ball through to Mirko Antenucci, who broke the offside trap and slotted past Adam Collin.

Whatever Evans said to his men at the break worked as they came out and turned the game around in 20 minutes after the restart.

After Paul Taylor had gone close with a free-kick, the Millers levelled in the 58th minute.

Lee Frecklington surged into the box and his shot was palmed out by Marco Silvestri and Alex Revell was on hand to tap in the rebound for his first goal since Wembley.

The Millers were rampant and took the lead seven minutes with a superb effort from their record signing, who broke his duck for the club.

Clarke-Harris picked up the ball in the centre circle and advanced forward before lashing a low 25-yard shot into the bottom corner.

Leeds tried to come back into the game but could not beat a determined Adam Collin who made two top-class saves, first to deny Adryan and then an even better stop to keep out Antenucci's effort.

It meant the Millers held on for a famous victory and added another notable Yorkshire scalp to their collection.

Rotherham: Collin, Richardson, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Hall (Taylor 46), Frecklington, Green, Pringle (Smallwood 81), Revell, Derbyshire (Clarke-Harris 63)

Attendance: 11,530

One to remember: Clarke-Harris introduced himself in style with a fine winning goal.

One to forget: Ryan Hall's selection was a wildcard from Evans and he lasted just 45 minutes and has not been seen in a Millers shirt since.
