Rotherham   1 - 1   Shrewsbury

Highlights - Rotherham 1-1 Shrewsbury

Rotherham 1-1 Shrewsbury

Rotherham made it four games unbeaten and stayed ahead of opponents Shrewsbury following a fortunate draw.

The Millers took the lead through Adam Le Fondre's penalty after he was felled by Graham Couglan in the area.

But just before half-time the visitors equalised when Andy Warrington could not hold Paul Murray's shot and Steve Leslie drilled into the empty net.

Shrewsbury had numerous chances after the break but the hosts held on for a draw they did not deserve.


Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"I'm frustrated and disappointed. Second half we should have won it. I thought second half we battered them.

"We put balls into the box, we've had shots. I'm disappointed we haven't finished the chances."
