Millers 2 Sheff Utd 2

Last updated : 04 December 2018 By Millersmad

Jamie Proctor came off the bench to score a stoppage-time equaliser for Rotherham as they drew 2-2 with Sheffield United in the Sky Bet Championship.

Mark Duffy had put the Blades in front early on, only to see his strike cancelled out by Jon Taylor in the 66th minute.

Chris Basham then looked as though he had given Sheffield United the win that would have sent them top of the table in the 85th minute, but Proctor netted in the second minute of added time to share the spoils.

Rotherham started brighter but it was the Blades who took the lead after eight minutes. Semi Ajayi's sloppy pass was intercepted by Enda Stevens, who slipped the ball to Duffy on the edge of the area. The midfielder still had plenty to do, but he stepped inside his marker before getting into the box and slotting coolly past Marek Rodak in the Rotherham goal.

Sheffield United had another glorious opportunity to double their lead five minutes before the break. Billy Sharp's initial effort following a smartly-worked corner was kept out before the ball fell to David McGoldrick two yards from goal. It appeared as though the net was at his mercy, but somehow Will Vaulks managed to get across to deny him on the line.

And the Blades would pay for that miss midway through the second half when Rotherham levelled. Failing to fully clear a Vaulks cross, the ball only found its way to Taylor on the edge of the box, and his effort took a heavy deflection on its way into the bottom corner.

Sheffield United looked to have claimed all three points five minutes from time when Sharp's cross was headed in at the far post by Basham, but Rotherham would respond again.

Marvin Johnson had been sent on moments earlier to help ensure the win, but he lost the ball needlessly and Rotherham managed to get the ball into the box, where Proctor arrived to slam the ball home.
