Kieran Agard was adjudged to have been brought down by Ben Nugent, with the Millers top scorer converting the spot-kick himself.

Posh remain in possession of the final play-off spot but have seen their cushion cut to three points after MK Dons won.

He said: "The table doesn't lie at this stage of the season and Rotherham are rightfully in the play-off places, but I thought we were unlucky to lose the game.

"I've seen the penalty incident six times now and it is a poor decision which has had a big bearing on the outcome of a big game.

"We made changes at half-time to try to give ourselves a bit more composure, but we couldn't get a goal and didn't carve out enough good opportunities.

"It is immensely frustrating that we aren't stringing more good results together, but we are giving our fans another roller-coaster ride."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
