What the national newspapers reported Rotherham's draw at Cardiff

Rotherham ended their 16-game run without a draw on Saturday as they took a point at Cardiff in an undulating match that ended 2-2.

Anthony Pilkington took the headlines by getting on the scoresheet three times, twice in the right net and once with an own goal.

Here's how a selection of national newspapers reported the game.

Sunday Mirror

Anthony Pilkington scored the kind of hat-trick that leaves a striker holding regrets instead of the match-ball.
Two cool finishes would have put Cardiff in sniffing distance of the play-offs – and deepened Rotherham’s relegation fears – had he not deflected a visitors’ corner into his own net.
The Bluebirds did have Lee Peltier sent off for two clumsy fouls, but Rotherham deserved their draw which lifts them a point above the drop zone.

The Republic of Ireland flier found the net three times, though one was an unlucky own goal.

Cardiff hitman Pilkington’s second was enough for the draw as he relished his new striker role to keep Cardiff chasing a play-off spot and the Millers just one point above the drop zone.
