Millers suffer more FA Cup misery at Leeds

The story of the game

Rotherham suffered their annual FA Cup disappointment as they were beaten 2-0 at Leeds in a game where both sides had one eye on midweek's Championship fixtures.

Leeds winger Mustapha Carayol scored on the stroke of half-time as he sent in a stunning 20-yard effort before Souleymane Doukara added a second at the death after an embarrassing mix-up between Lee Camp and Frazer Richardson.

The Boro loanee clearly enjoys playing against the Millers as he scored a similar goal against them last month when on loan at Huddersfield.

Rotherham were far from out played, but they were unable to force any clear-cut chances.
Instead it was Leeds who nearly doubled their lead when Stuart Dallas crashed his 18-yard shot into the crossbar.

And Leeds did it make it two at the death when Doukara capitalised on a defensive error to walk the ball home.

Key Moment

Carayol provided the only real moment of quality with his goal on the brink of half-time, the eighth time this season the Millers have conceded between minutes 40-45 this season.

Man of the match

Richie Smallwood – The battling midfielder was at his imperious best, winning tackle after tackle and breaking play up well.


Mustapha Carayol (1-0 45 mins) – Carayol repeated his trick of a few weeks ago when he was on loan at Huddersfield by slamming a swerving shot high into the net form the corner of the area.


Leeds: Silvestri; Coyle, Bellusci, Cooper, Taylor, Byram, Bridcutt, Murphy (Cook 88), Carayol (Dallas 74), Antenucci, Doukara.
Rotherham: Camp, Richardson, Broadfoot, Belaid, Mattock, Facey (Clarke-Harris 46), Smallwood, Green, Newell, G Ward (Derbyshire 78), D Ward (Ledesma 57).
