Millers show mettle

Rotherham 2 Leeds United 1

Rotherham produced a rousing second-half display to dispose of Yorkshire rivals Leeds and pile the pressure on their head coach Darko Milanic, with a 2-1 win at the New York Stadium last night.

The Millers were trailing at half-time to Mirco Antenucci’s effort, but they put in a barnstorming performance after the restart and turned it around thanks to goals from Alex Revell and substitute Jonson Clarke-Harris in the space of seven minutes.

It recorded just a second league win over their illustrious opponents since 1962 and, after taking seven points from games with Blackburn, Norwich and United, showed they are a force to be reckoned with in the Championship.

Milanic can only dream of such a points haul as he is still waiting for a first win in charge of Leeds after four games and, with an owner with the track record of Massimo Cellino, he is still to convince the Italian he is the right man for the job.

ROTHERHAM: Collin, Richardson, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Hall (Taylor 46), Frecklington, Green, Pringle (Smallwood 81), Derbyshire (Clarke-Harris 63), Revell.

LEEDS: Silvestri, Berardi, Bellusci, Pearce, Warnock, Bianchi (Morison 88), Austin, Mowatt, Cook (Adryan 63), Antenucci, Doukara (Sharp 76).
