Burton Albion   2 - 4   Rotherham

Burton v Rotherham

Burton 2-4 Rotherham

Two late goals helped Rotherham overcome Burton Albion.

Greg Pearson nodded Albion ahead inside a minute but Johnny Mullins' header pegged them back before Aaron Webster steered in to restore the home lead.

Webster slammed a penalty off the bar after Marcus Marshall tripped Jacques Maghoma, before Marshall recovered to head the Millers level once more.

Adam Le Fondre hooked in with a minute left and Jason Taylor finished a quick counter-attack deep into added time.


Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:
"We threw away all three points. We dominated from the first minute; we scored a fantastic goal and allowed them back in it.

"I thought we regained control of the game and dominated possession again but we missed chances once again. We managed to score another goal and we went in at half time quite comfortable.

"You can't relax against Rotherham. In the second half we went out and got a penalty, the game should have been dead and buried but we missed it and we crumbled from there-on in."

Rotherham United manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I think we were very fortunate after the performance of the first half. One or two words were said at half-time and you can not defend the way we played.

"But I'll give them loads of credit for the second-half performance and we won almost every first ball. We put them on the back foot.

"We got the luck with the penalty and in the second-half we've battered them."
