Millers 1 - MK Dons 1

Last updated : 01 March 2020 By Millersmad

Freddie Ladapo went from hero to villain as League One leaders Rotherham were held 1-1 to home by MK Dons.

The in-form striker netted his fourth goal in as many matches and 17th of the season to put the hosts ahead early on.

However, after Rhys Healey had drawn MK Dons level in the 22nd minute, Ladapo spurned an easy chance to win the game in the second half as the spoils were shared

Rotherham, who started the day level on points with Coventry, took the lead after just 10 minutes when Ladapo ran in on goal from Jamie Lindsay's pass and powered an effort past Lee Nicholls.

An individual piece of brilliance from Healey drew the visitors level with the frontman bewildering the Rotherham defence before firing into the top corner.

Michael Smith had two great opportunities to restore Rotherham's lead but he headed wide from a corner before being denied by a strong hand from Nicholls.

Ladapo missed an even easier chance as he inexplicably dragged wide from close-range after Chiedozie Ogbene's dazzling run and cross.

It proved to the best chance of the lot as Rotherham piled on the pressure in the second half but to no avail.

Ben Wiles also came agonisingly close with a long-range curler but Rotherham also needed goalkeeper Daniel Iversen to deny Alex Gilbey when one-on-one in injury time.
