Rotherham United drew 1-1 away at Charlton, conceding late and missing the opportunity to go to second in the league.

The points were shared at The Valley as Charlton’s Connor Washington’s late equaliser cancelled out Rotherham’s first half lead from Mickel Miller. Despite Charlton’s resurgence, Rotherham United remain twelve games unbeaten.

The Millers took the lead at the end of the first half when Mickel Miller scored in the 2nd minute of added time. Miller smashes the ball home from a knockdown from defender Richard Wood to score his first goal for the club.

In the second half, Rotherham striker, and League One top goal scorer Michael Smith, had an opportunity to double the lead denied by Charlton goalkeeper, Craig MacGillivray, as his fierce strike was tipped around the post.

Charlton never lost hope and grew into the game, forcing chances of their own, and their pressure finally paid off in the 83rd minute when Connor Washington shrugged off Millers defender Michael Ihiekwe, before slotting home a shot into the bottom left corner.

After the game, Rotherham United manager, Paul Warne, said: “It was a really good point and it has kept our unbeaten run going.

“When you’re leading 1-0 it seems worse to get a point but I thought it was two good teams going at it and we cancelled each other out.

Next up for Rotherham United is Bromley FC in the first round of the FA Cup on Saturday 6 November, it will be the first ever meeting between the two sides in any competition.
