2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 15

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 15 is a superb last-minute League One win.

Rotherham 2 Leyton Orient 1 (1/2/14)

Watching your team score a last-minute winner is one of the delights of football and Rotherham fans were experiencing them on a regular basis as they charged towards the League One play-offs.

The one that gave them a precious three points against Leyton Orient was a bit extra special though, as it came against a promotion rival and the scorer - Alex Revell - did it against his old club.

The goal, deep into stoppage time, gave the Millers a deserved win and extended their unbeaten run.

They started brightly and went ahead in the 10th minute when Wes Thomas scored his first goal for the club, glancing Ben Pringle's superb cross into the corner.

The Millers continued to boss things, spurning several chances to extend their lead, the best of which came in the second half when Tom Hitchcock was denied by the feet of Ben Alnwick when through on goal.

And the hosts were bitten as Orient, occupants in the top two for the majority of the season, responded and levelled with 14 minutes remaining when Moses Odubajo fired high into the net.

But the Millers were not going to be denied and what better way for Revell to make a point against his former club than to grab an injury-time winner.

This goal was full of quality as after Richie Smallwood had battled hard for possession, the ball fell to Revell 20 yards and out he curled a low effort into the bottom corner to send New York into eruption.

As it turned out, there was a better way for Revell to make a point against Leyton Orient, but you'll have to wait for that.

Rotherham: Collin, Bradley, Arnason, Davis (Skarz 60), Tavernier, Agard, Frecklington, Smallwood, Pringle, Thomas (Hitchcock 46), Revell

Attendance: 8,604

One to remember: The celebrations after Revell struck the last-gasp goal were great to see.

One to forget: The game was featured on the Football League Show and Steve Evans took less than 10 seconds to name drop Sir Alex Ferguson in an interview with Clem.
