Alex Revell gave the Millers the lead after 31 minutes of Saturday's League Two clash at Don Valley, but the home side missed a host of chances and Akinfenwa made them pay.

"What a way to finish the season, with a last minute equaliser," Boothroyd said. "That's why we managed to stay up because we keep going.

"All credit to Rotherham because we both put on a performance and both tried to win the game and in the end I thought it was a fair result."

Boothroyd said he would be talking to his players this coming week to "decide where we go from here."

He added: "I asked them to finish it off right and that's what they did and I'm hoping now to have a chat before the end of May because I want to make sure we get a good squad together for next season. There will inevitably be comings and goings, but I want to get a solid core ready for the start of next season."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
