Rotherham United 1-1 Tranmere Rovers

Tranmere Rovers nicked a late leveller for a 1-1 draw at Rotherham as Stefan Payne bundled in deep into injury time to earn the visitors a point following Ben Wiles' opener.

Kieron Morris forced Daniel Iversen into the first save of the game after he darted down the right wing and fired in a low shot.​

Wiles almost caught Tranmere out as his scuffed shot struck the post before bouncing to safety.​

The visitors applied early pressure in the second half when Paul Mullin forced Iversen into action with a shot from the edge of the box.​

Rotherham substitute Chiedozie Ogbene almost set up the opener when his left-wing cross was fired over by Matt Crooks.​

Wiles then put Rotherham in front in the 73rd minute, with a high finish beyond Scott Davies.

But Tranmere pushed for a leveller and it finally came in the fifth minute of added time when Payne was on hand to poke in from close range.
