Referee: Darren Drysdale (Lincolnshire): 7

Opposition view

“That's why Rotherham are league leaders. They’re dogged, they stay in games. They’ve had two shots on target and they’ve scored two goals. They’ve taken the chances when they come and you have to give them credit for that.

“We had three one-on-ones today against the meanest defence in the division. When I look at our chances, I have to be happy with it.

“We’ll play far worse than that this season and we’ll win. Sometimes you have to take the rough with the smooth.

“I wanted a performance and got that. We just lacked the result.

"It's a hard one to take as their first goal is a debate as to whether the ball even went out for a corner. It's not conclusive when you looks at the replays."
