Rotherham kept their hopes for Sky Bet Championship survival as they played a goalless draw in their final game against Luton on Tuesday.
In a frantic first half, Elijah Adebayo hit the post for the hosts, shortly before Millers goalkeeper Jamal Blackman pushed a Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall corner into the woodwork and Matt Crooks followed suit. at the other end of the field.
The proceedings became more and more tense after the restart and Crooks was fortunate enough to win it late when he led Ryan Giles’ brilliant delivery from the wide left flank of the right post.
But it was not for the men of Paul Warne, who remain 22nd after playing their 11th game in 33 days, two points behind Derby, 21st. A point for Luton, meanwhile, means they’ve secured a first half of the championship for the first time in 15 years.
Man of the Match – Matt Crooks
Lee Hendrie on Sky Sports Football:
“He came back to the side and delivered everything except the ball in the back of the net. He put in a tireless performance and was my best player.”
The two teams will be next in action at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 8, when the Sky Bet Championship season concludes. Luton travels to Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to face QPR, while Rotherham travels to Cardiff City Stadium to face Cardiff.
