ELATED manager Paul Warne admitted the Millers'  draw against South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster felt like a victory after top-scorer Kieffer Moore netted a last minute equaliser.

Rotherham were behind at the Keepmoat through a Richard Wood own goal but as the clock moved into the 95th minute. Moore converted a goal mouth scramble to secure his 13th of the campaign and a point.

Warne said: "Overall, over the course of the 96 minutes, I thought a draw was a pretty fair result.

"We might have had the better chances but I do think when both managers watch the game back on Monday both will be honest enough to say a draw was a fair result."

Wood missed the best chance of the first half when he hit the bar with a header when the goal was gaping.

Added Warne: "Woody reckons his attempt on goal will go on a bloopers DVD for Christmas, I don't think it will be ready for this Christmas, but he should definitley have scored whether it's over the line or not."
