Christ Tiehi was Rotherham’s saviour on Tuesday night time as his aim in second-half stoppage time noticed the Millers salvage some extent from an entertaining 2-2 draw with Ipswich.
Matt Taylor’s aspect had taken a shock lead inside 5 minutes when summer time signing Sam Nombe slotted in his first aim for the membership, however a coaching floor transfer executed to sheer perfection noticed Sam Morsy restore parity shortly afterwards.
An in depth-range end from Jack Taylor on the finish of a largely insipid second half appeared to have settled the sport within the Tractor Boys’ favour, however Tiehi got here up trumps with a shocking strike within the 91st minute to earn Rotherham a well-deserved level.
Had Taylor’s aim been the winner, Ipswich would have moved to inside some extent of Championship leaders Leicester, however some extent on the highway does see them slim it to 3 factors with yet one more sport earlier than the November worldwide break. The Millers, in the meantime, transfer to inside 4 factors of security.
How Ipswich have been denied on the New York
With Ipswich going toe-to-toe with Leicester on the prime of the desk and Rotherham already battling on the backside, it appeared as if the script was written for this sport on the New York Stadium, initially postponed on October 20 after the River Don burst its banks within the midst of Storm Babet.
The Millers, uncharacteristically, pressed excessive from the off and took a shock lead inside 5 minutes when Fred Onyedinma seized management of the ball after Davis chested a move down, drove on and laid the ball on a plate for Nombe to complete.
They have been solely forward for quarter-hour, although. Davis formed as much as carry a free-kick from the right-hand aspect in direction of the six-yard field, however as an alternative he squared for the unmarked Morsy, who effortlessly handed the ball into the top-left nook.
City have been denied a penalty earlier than the break, too. Odoffin caught Hirst along with his proper leg within the field, however it appeared as if the theatrics from the latter after the contact made referee Graham Scott’s resolution for him.
A lot of the second half handed with out incident, with neither aspect taking a grip of the sport. Spot-kick appeals have been once more waved away when Axel Tuanzebe’s header appeared to strike the hand of Georgie Kelly, who then, on the different finish, pressured a uncommon save from Vaclav Hladky after a spot of pinball within the field.
The guests did finally take the lead 87 minutes in, when Oliver Rathbone’s tried clearance hit Taylor and bobbled over the road, however resilient Rotherham battled till the tip, with Tiehi thundering house after Kelly’s blocked shot fell kindly for him.
