Northampton 1-1 Rotherham

Northampton ended a four-match losing streak in League Two with a draw against Rotherham.

Gareth Evans gave the Millers the lead after just two minutes, when he cut inside and fired past Sam Walker.

Disaster then struck for the visitors, when goalkeeper Conrad Logan let Lewis Young's cross squirm through his hands and into the net.

Substitute Luke Foster had a chance to snatch a win for Rotherham when he was put through, but shot wide.


Northampton Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Radio Northampton:

"An improved performance - you'd have understood if the crowd had gone home after a minute, but the boys showed that they wanted to stay in it, weren't going to give in.

"The supporters were brilliant. They were really supportive and that got through onto the pitch and the lads were willing to throw in every ounce of energy because of that.

"We had two wingers who were flying in the first-half especially and it looks like we've got a good pairing in Akinfenwa and Berahino up front. Derek Niven got about, filled holes and allowed Michael Jacobs to get into dangerous areas, and we had to defend stoutly."

Rotherham United manager Andy Scott told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"We have dominated in terms of territory and withheld a lot of bombardment from free kicks.

"We we're lacking that little bit in the box which is frustrating but it was a lot better performance in terms of how we defended and we were more resolute.

"It's another away game where we have picked a point up and if we can go and get three points against Aldershot then the last four games will have been pretty decent."
