Millers held by Crewe

ROTHERHAM United had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Crewe Alexandra at Don Valley Stadium tonight despite dominating the contest.

The visitors took the lead on 15 minutes when Jason Taylor upended Byron Moore in the penalty area and Harry Davis sent Rhys Taylor the wrong way from the spot.

A deserved equaliser finally arrived just after the hour mark when Lewis Grabban, back in the starting line-up, nipped in to score his 16th of the season after goalkeeper Steve Phillips and defender Matt Tootle failed to deal with a cross.
