A minute after the Millers were denied a clear spot-kick Kieran Agard fired them ahead, but they could not hold on and Ryan Lowe equalised from the spot six minutes from time after a Tom Skarz foul on substitute Abdulai Bell-Baggie.

"They battered us for 20 minutes, but our keeper made good saves at the right time and while you are only one down you are always in with a chance," said Moore.

"I am gutted with the goal, getting done with a long ball over the top. But give us credit, we kept going and were deserved it. Bell-Baggie looked nice and sharp and at the end of the day we might have nicked it.

"Most of their shots were from outside the penalty area. Rotherham had a lot of possession in the first half but really and it was nice to come in at half-time not chasing the game.

"I can only praise the players. Steve Evans will probably say Rotherham should have won , but I am in the other box and I think it was a well-deserved draw."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
