2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 6

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 six is a midweek victory over Tranmere - managed by Ronnie Moore.

Tranmere Rovers 1 Rotherham 2 (28/1/14)

The Millers were playing with confidence and in the early stages of a play-off-position-clinching run when they made the midweek trip to the Wirrall.

The fact that it was on a Tuesday probably helped even further as Steve Evans' men had an amazing record away from home on that day as they made it 10 games without defeat away from home in a midweek fixture.

And this one came courtesy of Alex Revell's brace, with the victory far more comfortable than the scoreline suggests.

After a first half of total domination, where Wes Thomas had an effort disallowed, the Millers finally took the lead six minutes before the break when Revell steered a low effort into the corner following good work by Kieran Agard.

It was Revell's second goal in three games and first on the road since November 2013.

He did not have to wait as long for his next as it came midway through the second half.

Thomas raced clear from a Kari Arnason hoof and when his shot was saved by the legs of Owain Fon Wiliams, Revell was following up to clinically smash home from the edge of the area.

That knocked the stuffing out of Tranmere, though the hosts did respond in injury time to make it a bum-twitching few minutes for the Millers.

Andy Robinson headed home from a corner, but the visitors stood firm and rightfully claimed the three points which made it four games unbeaten.

Rotherham: Collin, Bradley, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Agard, Frecklington (Vuckic 88), Milsom (Smallwood 71), Pringle, Thomas (O’Connor 81), Revell

Attendance: 3,777 (416 Millers)

One to remember: Alex Revell's brace was his first for the club since his debut in 2011. 

One to forget: Wes Thomas' embarrassing miss from just five yards after the break was a runaway candidate for miss-of-the-season.
