West Brom   4 - 3   Rotherham

Simon Cox grabbed a dramatic winner in the final four minutes of extra time as West Brom edged past Rotherham in a thrilling second-round Carling Cup tie.

Craig Beattie put the hosts in front in the 10th minute before Michael Cummins equalised with a header on 28 minutes.

Graham Dorrans put the Baggies back in front in the second half, only for Tom Pope to level with a powerful header.

Pope and Beattie both netted further goals in extra-time before Cox's left-foot strike settled the match.


Rotherham manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I'm over the moon with the players but really disappointed because we've given them a really good game.

"We got our noses in front and then decided to stop defending.

"We made them look ordinary at times and that is testament to the players."
