Rotherham 2-2 Ipswich: Tiehi strike snatches draw for Millers

Jack Taylor thought he had given Ipswich victory after his 87th minute goal

Christ Tiehi's late equaliser gave struggling Rotherham a point against high-flying Ipswich, who missed the chance to cut Leicester's lead at the top of the Championship to a point.

Jack Taylor appeared to have given Kieran McKenna's side a late victory with a goal three minutes from time, but Tiehi's shot from distance snatched a draw for The Millers side in a frantic finish.

Ipswich had come from behind to lead after Sam Morsy's wonderful finish cancelled out Sam Nombe's early opener for Matt Taylor's side.

The Tractor Boys stay second, three points behind leaders Leicester and eight clear of third-placed Leeds, while Rotherham remain in the bottom three after just one win in their last ten matches.

The game had to be rearranged after the River Don burst its banks three weeks ago in the wake of Strom Babet and it was the Millers who flooded forward to take a shock early lead.

Fred Onyedinma's driving run and cross set up Sam Nombe, who finished smartly at the back post, his first goal for the Millers.

But Sam Morsy's inch-perfect strike, after a perfectly executed free-kick set move, saw Kieran McKenna's side equalise in the 19th minute.

Ipswich were the better side from that point on, but failed to fashion many clear cut chances in the second half, with Leif Davis and Conor Chaplin both well off target from outside the area.

But they went in front when Omari Hutchinson's 87th-minute shot from the left was saved by Rotherham goalkeeper but ricocheted off Jack Taylor and over the line.

The goal looked like it would give McKenna's side a fifth win in six Championship matches, but Tiehi's side-footed finish from the edge of the area brought Rotherham level.

Ipswich, who remain unbeaten on the road this season in the league, had the chance to go only one point behind Leicester with victory, following the Foxes' defeat to Leeds by Friday night.

But Rotherham defended resolutely, and held on for a well-earned point which belied their lowly position in the second tier.
