Rotherham United got a last minute equaliser at home to Reading yesterday which, going at three o’clock I think a lot of us were saying this was a ‘must win game’.
We didn’t win, we drew and after a first half which is probably the worst forty-five minutes I’ve seen a Rotherham team play in the last year, we have to name it a ‘battling draw’.
Reading had more possession although only just but the Millers won more corners – thirteen to four which means we must have been in or around their box a lot. Our passing accuracy was sixty-three per cent with a fifty-three per cent accuracy in our opponents half.
Rotherham had twenty-six shots at goal of which ten were on target – I’m thinking all those must have been in the second half.
I do feel we got out of this by the skin of our teeth – I also feel we must start two up front against West Brom next weekend. What I’ve seen of Smith and Proctor playing together they make a pretty good team although, of course, that leaves the midfield a little light – rather pleased this isn’t my problem to solve!
