Rotherham   1 - 1   Stevenage

Rotherham v Stevenage graphic

Rotherham 1-1 Stevenage

Rotherham remain in the automatic promotion positions but had to settle for a draw with Stevenage.

The Millers took the lead after a free-kick was half-cleared to Adam Le Fondre who crossed for Nicky Law to fire home.

Stevenage came back into the game with Michael Bostwick and Peter Winn both forcing fine saves from Andy Warrington in the Rotherham goal.

The visitors' pressure eventually paid off when John Mousinho reacted quickest after Winn saw another shot blocked.


Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"The disappointing thing for me was that we dealt with all the balls that were thrown in there because they do throw some balls in there.

"Just disappointed in the one ball that went in, we just slept on it really and they've punished us for it.

"I thought we defended well, I was unhappy with the midfield, it sticks out like a sore thumb, we need someone who's going to get on the ball when you come under pressure and take the sting out the game."

Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"I think the players put in a sterling performance, they took the game to them.

"The ground was very quiet and the bulk of the play in the first half was ours, I lost count of the amount of corners we earned.

"It was a real shock to concede just before half time, that was real body blow and I think we started the second half in shock."
