2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 5

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 five is an early-season reunion in the Championship with Wolves.

Rotherham 1 Wolves 0 (16/8/14)

After going toe-to-toe with Wolves in two titanic League One battles in 2013/14 season, where both sides won promotion, the Millers were handed an early reunion with them in the Championship.

And given those two previous games ended in a 9-7 aggregate to Kenny Jackett's side, there was anticipation for another classic, with the game featured on the Football League Show.

But those watching in hope of another thriller were let down, but the Millers were able to claim an important victory in their opening home game of the campaign, though how they quite managed it is another matter.

Wolves romped to the title, racking up 100 points, and they showed they will be a tough proposition in the second tier too as they had the Millers on the rack.

Adam Collin had to produce a fantastic double save to deny Bakary Sako and was also at his best to keep out Nouha Dicko and Rajiv van La Parra before Dicko missed a glaring opportunity with Collin out of position.

Among all that, Paul Taylor rattled the bar for the Millers in a rare ray of sunshine among a torrid storm they had to weather in the first half.

There were a few more moments of anguish after the break but the decisive action of the game came in the Wolves penalty area 14 minutes from time.

Craig Morgan's header from Ben Pringle's corner was parried by Carl Ikeme and before Wolves could get rid, Ryan Hall stole in and deflected a clearance into the net.

It was as scrappy as they come, but the Millers didn't mind. 

It was enough to get their first Championship win of the season - something that took them 21 attempts last time they were in this division.

Rotherham: Collin, Broadfoot, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Swift (Hall 45, Agard 79), Frecklington, Green, Pringle, Revell, Taylor (Derbyshire 62).

Attendance: 10,752

One to remember: Kieran Agard made his final appearance for the Millers, bringing to a two-year spell which yeilded 32 goals in 91 appearances.

One to forget: Ryan Hall suffered an injury when scoring the goal which kept him out for over a month.
