RELEGATION-THREATENED Rotherham were left frustrated in the Championship today, after a 100th-minute equaliser saw them draw 2-2 with Sheffield Wednesday.

Dominic Iorfa’s goal in the 10th minute of time added on meant the Millers stayed in the relegation zone below Reading on goal difference.

Fernando Forestieri had given the visitors the lead in the Yorkshire derby on 35 minutes before Jon Taylor drew Rotherham level shortly thereafter.

Former Dundalk midfielder Richie Towell scored what appeared to be the winner on 74 minutes, kicking the corner flag as part of his celebration.

However, Iorfa then equalised amid a dramatic conclusion that also saw Forestieri sent off moments later after picking up a second yellow card.

It was 27-year-old Towell’s fourth goal of the campaign in his 23rd Championship appearance for Rotherham this season.
