Rotherham 3-2 Stevenage

Lee Frecklington's double helped Rotherham into the next round, despite a sterling comeback from Stevenage.

Kari Arnason set up Mark Bradley to open the scoring for the Millers.

Frecklington scored with a long-range effort after Ben Pringle's pass, before picking up a loose ball two minutes later and adding another.

James Dunne's 30-yard strike gave Stevenage hope before Filipe Morais scored after Marcus Haber's shot was saved, but Rotherham held on.
