2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 4

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 will look back at a game from this year.

Behind window number four is a midweek visit in League One to Oldham Athletic, with the timing fitting nicely after yesterday's news.

Oldham 0 Rotherham 2 (11/3/2014)

In years to come, this game will be remembered for one thing and one thing only - Lee Frecklington's worldy. 

The midfielder was at the heart of something special that the Millers were creating and his goal at Boundary Park - which made it 2-0 and put the game to bed - was a stunner and instant goal-of-the-season contender.

Steve Evans' men were already in the ascendency after a strong start and they took a 27th-minute lead when Mark Bradley was on hand to steer a rebound home after Richie Smallwood's shot had been fumbled.

It was Bradley's last meaningful action of the season as he later suffered a knee injury which has kept him sidelined since.

Adam Collin was called into action to keep the visitors in front and allowed Frecklington to take centre-stage after the break.

The former Peterborough man was not averse to scoring spectacular goals, with further goal-of-the-season contenders against Sheffield Wednesday and Preston already in his back pocket.

But he outdid himself in the 64th minute as he picked the ball up from Ben Pringle, steadied himself and then unleashed a scorching 25-yard effort that sailed into the top corner and nearly burst the net.

It was a goal that any Millers fan will never get bored of seeing and put the finishing touches on an 11th match without defeat and an 11th away win - a staggering achievement for early March.

Rotherham: Collin, Bradley (O’Connor 86), Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Tavernier, Frecklington (Addison 86), Smallwood, Pringle (Vuckic 86), Agard, Revell

Attendance: 3,745 (1,119 Millers)

One to remember: Lee Frecklington's superb 25-yard effort which made it 2-0.

One to forget: Mark Bradley suffering a knee injury which ended his season.
