It's up to you New York! The best of Rotherham's late action at NYS

While no one will have been expecting Rotherham's unbelievable recovery to earn a point against Derby, only the most foolish of fans will have left early.

After all, in four seasons at their majestic new home they have been treated to a wealth of late goals to turnaround their fortunes in games.

Here's a look at the best of the late action during the Millers' short stay at New York Stadium.

Rotherham 1 York 1 - 26/02/13

Hardly the most eye-catching of results, the Millers had to scramble late on to take something out of their League Two Yorkshire derby with the Minstermen. After Matty Blair had put the visitors ahead in the 63rd minute, it looked like Steve Evans' side would endure more frustration at home until Daniel Nardiello popped up with an injury-time leveller.

Rotherham 2 Leyton Orient 1 - 01/02/14

In a season that was defined by the Millers' ability to score late goals, their last-gasp win was perhaps the most enjoyable given it came against a League One promotion rival. Wes Thomas' early header for the hosts was cancelled out after the break by Moses Odubajo and that's how it looked like staying until deep into injury time. But Richie Smallwood won the ball back for the Millers and found Alex Revell who sent a low shot into the bottom corner to send New York wild.

Rotherham 2 MK Dons 2 - 26/04/14

In a fitting end to regular-season action at New York, the Millers signed off before their play-off campaign with some more late drama. The Dons had coasted into a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Matthew Kennedy and Izale McLeod. As the game approached the final 10 minutes it looked done and dusted, but the Millers had other ideas. Michael O'Connor got them back in it in the 79th minute before Alex Revell again got in on the late act by heading home a long throw in injury time to earn a point.

Rotherham 2 Huddersfield 2 - 26/12/14

There looked to be little sign of Christmas cheer for the Millers when Huddersfield surged into a two-goal lead just after the hour on Boxing Day. But somehow, Steve Evans' side came back from the dead as Jonson Clarke-Harris headed home in the 88th minute and then with the clock ticking past 90 minutes and the exit gangways beginning to fill up Lee Frecklington rescued a point for the Millers when he struck a deflected effort into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Rotherham 2 Sheffield Wednesday 3 - 21/3/15

It's difficult to class this in the best category, but for late drama there has hardly been a better game at New York Stadium as the score changed a whopping four times after the 86th minute. Ben Pringle's goal looked like give the Millers a 1-0 win until Caolan Lavery headed in an 86th-minute leveller. Steve Evans was on the pitch a minute later, though, as Jordan Bowery restored the hosts' lead and that is how it stayed heading into injury time. Then the Owls turned the game on its head as Atdhe Nuhiu and Kieran Lee scored in the final throes to break Millers' hearts.

Rotherham 2 Cardiff 1 - 19/9/15 

The Millers were without a win in their opening seven league games when Cardiff came to town but they were given the perfect tonic when David Marshall kicked out at Matt Derbyshire and saw red, with Vadis Odjidja-Ofie scoring the resulting penalty. The lead was short-lived, though, as Peter Whittingham levelled with another spot-kick two minutes later and it seemed all set to end 1-1 as the Millers floundered against 10 men after the break. That was until Chris Maguire whipped in an innocuous cross to the near post which was turned into his own net by Matthew Connolly to break the Millers' duck. 

Rotherham 1 Middlesbrough 0 - 8/3/16

You don't have to dig too deep in your memory banks to remember this one as Rotherham busted a nation's coupon with a late win over promotion-chasing Middlesbrough. After taking a first-half battering, where Boro could easily have been three or four up, it was was a different story after the break and the Millers were on course for an impressive point in their bid for survival. But that tally was increased two minutes from time when that man Lee Frecklington was the right man in the right place to slam home Jonson Clarke-Harris' cutback.
