2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 7

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 seven is one of many victories secured by a last-minute winner.

Carlisle United 1 Rotherham 2 

Late goals were becoming a very welcome habit for the Millers and they scored at the death for the third game in a row to beat Carlisle in a game that should have already been put to bed.

But the Millers' refusal to ever give up, which was a real hallmark of the 2013/14 side, was bearing fruit and Kieran Agard rated his last-minute winner as his favourite goal of the season - and he had plenty to choose from.

They were playing with such confidence, especially away from home, and Wes Thomas put them ahead midway through the first half when he took advantage of some slapdash goalkeeping from Jordan Pickford and rolled the ball into an empty net.

Chance after chance was squandered and the visitors were made to pay on the stroke of half-time when Lee Miller's superb individual effort brought the scores level.

Steve Evans tore into his men at the interval and while it inspired a dominant second-half performance, it did not alter his side's wastefulness in front of goal as James Tavernier, Agard and Thomas all missed chances as it looked like the Millers would have to settle for a draw.

But the Millers never settled for anything and found yet another late goal to win it and it was superb. 

Alex Revell turned from battering ram to right winger and sent in a low cross which Agard did superbly well to turn into the bottom corner.

It earned a fourth win in a row and the promotion train was gathering speed quickly.

Rotherham: Collin, Bradley, Arnason, Davis, Tavernier, Agard (O’Connor 90), Frecklington, Smallwood, Pringle, Thomas, Revell

Attendance: 4,293 (688 Millers)

One to remember: A superb piece of wing-play by Alex Revell, who skinned his full-back and delivered a great ball to Kieran Agard.

One to forget: Wes Thomas blazing over early in the first half.
