Millers held in finale

ROTHERHAM United had to settle for a draw against Northampton Town in their final game at Don Valley Stadium this afternoon.


Leading 1-0 through Alex Revell’s 30th minute strike, they were denied a deserved win by Adebayo Akinfenwa’s stoppage time equaliser.

Lewis Grabban hit the outside of a post and Revell went close to a second goal as Rotherham had the better of the contest and restricted the visitors to very few chances before Akinfenwa’s last gasp header.

After four years in Sheffield, the Millers now look forward to a new future back home at the New York Stadium.
