Kieran Agard struck an injury-time winner to keep Rotherham United in the thick of the promotion battle to reach the Championship.

The Millers midfielder flicked home Alex Revell’s cross for his 16th goal of the season in the second minute of stoppage time. Last week it was colleague Lee Frecklington who netted an 88th-minute winner against Stevenage.

Wes Thomas put the visitors ahead but Rotherham conceded an equaliser on the stroke of half-time to Lee Miller’s overhead kick.

“It’s always nice to score a winning goal, and it’s always nice in added time, of course,” said Rotherham manager Steve Evans.

“But we could have been four or five-nil up at half-time. We should have been.

“Instead of that we turned level, and it’s fair to say that for one of the few times since probably October-November I had to get into them [the players] a little bit.

“To be fair to the players, I said to them “go out and some of you prove me wrong”, and listen, if it had finished one-nil we we’d have still been the dominant team.”
