Millers make mag­nif­i­cent fight­back from 3-0 down

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

“They will be go­ing home think­ing they have lost the game, you shouldn’t con­cede three goals in the fi­nal ten min­utes.

“This is the re­sult of the sea­son, never mind the day. I don’t think there will be an­other one like this. We were 3-0 down against Derby County, with the play­ers they have got, and have got a point.”

Warnock has ev­ery right to con­sider this re­sult in such re­gard as a draw did not look on the cards.

The Rams put in a fine per­for­mance and surged into a three-goal lead with a ten-minute blitz af­ter the break.

Ince cap­i­talised on two de­fen­sive er­rors and Martin tapped in to end an im­pres­sive pe­riod and the Derby bench were cel­e­brat­ing what looked a sim­ple win.

But from nowhere the Millers ral­lied and while Ward got Rother­ham go­ing, Best chose the finest of times to score his first goals for the club as two in six min­utes min­utes earned a point.

And they left Derby man­ager Dar­ren Was­sall brand­ing his team’s ca­pit­u­la­tion “in­ex­cus­able”.

“For 82 min­utes I thought that was the best we have played all sea­son,” he said.

“I asked for a re­ac­tion af­ter QPR and we cer­tainly got it. What hap­pened af­ter that was baf­fling, in­ex­pli­ca­ble, in­ex­cus­able and ev­ery­body con­nected with the foot­ball club is ab­so­lutely gut­ted.

“You feel like you have lost.With Rother­ham’s form we would have taken a point at the start of the game.

“But at 3-0 af­ter 82 min­utes you are ex­pected to win the game.

“We need to work on our game man­age­ment. We should be go­ing home with all three points and we are go­ing home with one in a very bad frame of mind.”

NO SIGN OF THINGS TO COME: Tom Ince opens the scor­ing
