Rotherham pull clear of drop after last-minute win against Leeds

02 April 2016 17:04
Steve Evans refused to discuss speculation linking him to another Championship job after seeing his position at Leeds become even more precarious following a dramatic 2-1 loss at his former club Rotherham. Evans’s return to the New York Stadium, where he enjoyed so many good times in a three-and-a-half-year spell, was ruined by Greg Halford’s 89th-minute penalty, which made it five wins in six for the Millers.Defeat would have been inconceivable for the Scot when Luke Murphy cancelled out Lee Frecklington’s opener in the 79th-minute, as the Millers were down to 10 men thanks to Matt Derbyshire’s red card and on the ropes. But Rotherham have specialised in late drama under Neil Warnock and won it when Frecklington was fouled by the Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, who also received a red card, and Halford scored from the spot.
