Rotherham   3 - 3   Burton Albion

Rotherham 3-3 Burton

Rotherham 3-3 Burton

Shaun Harrad grabbed a second-half hat-trick as Burton Albion come from three goals down to draw with Rotherham.

Kevin Ellison curled home a free-kick to put the Millers ahead and Ryan Cresswell nodded in to double the lead.

Adam Le Fondre slotted home from 12 yards to make it 3-0 but Harrad fired in to pull one back for the visitors.

Johnny Mullins fouled Jimmy Phillips in the area and Harrad scored with the resulting penalty and his close-range strike on 83 minutes salvaged a point.


Rotherham United boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"We were so lucky to be 3-0 up at half time, we were never in the game.

"We might look back at this and say it was a good point.

"For me the back four defended too deep and I've told them that it allowed them back in to the game."

Burton Albion boss Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:
"After the firs goal I thought there was only one time in it. I thought we would get the equaliser but we came in at half-time 3-0 down.

"There were a few choice words at half-time and that was the best second half performance we have had all season.

"Everything I asked for, they did, and I came away thinking we should have won the game."
