Kevin Ellison gave Rotherham the lead on the stroke of half-time, but Ryan Lowe claimed a 48th-minute equaliser with his seventh of the season. Stephen Dawson had a 65th-minute penalty saved by Rotherham keeper Andy Warrington but substitute Richie Baker pounced six minutes from time to seal the Shakers' sixth win in eight. "They do everything we ask of them and they're a joy to work with," Knill said of his players. "The average age was 20 or 21 and they showed unbelievable resilience. We scored a great goal at the start of the second half, the momentum was with us then and you thought only one team was going to win it. "Injuries are to be expected, it's a physical game, but we seem to be suffering more than anybody right now."
