Daniel Nardiello's double and a goal for Ben Pringle had his side 3-2 up with just over half an hour on the clock before man of the match Lee Frecklington finally settled the goal-fest with Rotherham's fourth in added time.

Evans said: "We have a habit of making things difficult for ourselves and after going a goal down so quickly we showed some character.

"It was a big performance. We played some special stuff in periods. It was a pity we had to wait so long for the fourth goal because I think our performance deserved a more comfortable win.

"When I joined this football club I said it was going to be a roller coaster ride, but I didn't realise it would be 3,000 feet high.

"We said to the boys we were going to play with pride and passion, but what a response we gave the supporters and what a response they gave us back. We were a goal down after 50 seconds, and I said to my staff on the bench, listen to the supporters, and that was for them."

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
