MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Jamie Proc­tor

Has had to be con­tent with a bit­part role this sea­son, Proc­tor’s 11 ap­pear­ances in the Cham­pi­onship in­clud­ing ten from the bench. But his was a fin­ish from the top drawer.

Bad day: Marvin John­son

Brought on to try and see the game out, the Blades sub­sti­tute lost pos­ses­sion just in­side the Millers’ half when he should have dinked the ball down the line to­wards the cor­ner flag. Mo­ments later, Rother­ham were level.

Key mo­ment: 92nd minute

John­son’s mis­take was com­pounded by oth­ers from Enda Stevens and Oliver Nor­wood, mean­ing the Blades had no-one but them­selves to blame when the ball broke to Proc­tor and he duly took ad­van­tage.

Ref watch: Pe­ter Bankes

The home fans were not happy at times but he han­dled the derby well, try­ing to keep the play mov­ing as much as pos­si­ble, which made for an en­ter­tain­ing con­test.

Ver­dict

Rother­ham started brightly but then lost their way only to pro­duce a fine sec­ond-half dis­play that, but for Dean Hen­der­son, would have been enough to earn three points.
