Accrington Stanley   2 - 3   Rotherham

Accrington 2-3 Rotherham

Accrington 2-3 Rotherham

Ryan Cresswell was Rotherham's hero as his stoppage-time winner scuppered Accrington's unbeaten home record.

Stanley went ahead when Andy Warrington slotted home but allowed the Millers into the game when Kevin Long saw red.

The defender dragged down Adam Le Fondre to concede a penalty that the striker converted himself.

Jimmy Ryan rifled home to give the home side the lead again, but headers from Exodus Geohaghon and Cresswell turned the game around for the visitors.


Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"We should have been out of sight with the chances we had.

"Overall I don't think anyone can complain. I think we've had the most chances of the game

"It look like at one stage with the chances we had it wasn't going to happen for us but it did."
