Rotherham's draw with Blackpool in numbers

The Christmas spirit well and truly disappeared as Rotherham threw away a golden chance for three points when they were held 1-1 at Blackpool on Sunday.

Despite boss Steve Evans claiming any day where you get a point in the Championship is a “good day”, it was ultimately definitely not a good day as the Millers failed to put the game to bed against the rock-bottom Seasiders and were punished by a late defensive lapse.

We should have been talking about a sixth league win of the season, but we're not.
