2014 Millers Matches Advent Calendar - Number 8

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 eight is a first Championship away win of the season.

Millwall 0 Rotherham 1 (23/8/14)

Rotherham know all too well that Millwall can be the toughest of places to go at the best of times, never mind when they have made an unbeaten start to the season.

But the Millers went into the Lions' Den and emerged triumphant thanks to the only positive moment of the playing Ben Pringle on the right experiment.

It was Pringle's second-half goal that earned the Millers their only away win to date this season and was cause for early, perhaps misplaced, optimism that they would have no fears of an instant return to League One.

Ian Holloway's men were enjoying a rampant start to the season and began brightly, with the Millers escaping a couple of early scares in their penalty area, particularly when Ricardo Fuller missed.

However, it was the visitors that had the best chance to open the scoring before the break but Alex Revell produced a miss that would not be out of place on any Danny Baker blooper DVDs this Christmas.

After Paul Taylor's cross-shot was parried straight into his path, Revell, who's last match in the capital had been so rewarding, inexplicably missed the open net from six yards.

The striker was let off the hook shortly after the restart as the Millers took the lead when Taylor's cross found its way to the back post where Pringle slotted home.

Pringle had a more trademark effort soon after, but his stinging half-volley was palmed away by David Forde, as the Millers recorded the win.

Rotherham: Collin, Broadfoot, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz (Wood 80), Pringle (Brindley 90), Frecklington, Smallwood, Wordsworth, Taylor, Revell (Bowery 86)

Attendance: 10,282 (410 Millers)

One to remember: The Millers held firm for the final 10 minutes despite having a back four containing exclusively centre-halves.

One to forget: Alex Revell will be fast-forwarding his miss when he watches the end-of-season DVD.
