Rotherham fought back from a half-time deficit to earn a deserved draw at Brighton.

The Millers were behind at the break, but needed only three minutes of the second half to score the equaliser.

Alex Revell controlled a Ben Pringle cross to shoot emphatically past David Stockdale for this third goal in three games.

Sub Jonson Clarke-Harris almost won the match in the 90th minute for Rotherham but his fierce free-kick was pushed for a corner by Stockdale and Gordon Greer nearly scored an own goal as Steve Evans’ men finished on top.

The visitors had the better of the second period, but hadn’t been at their best in the first half, when Joe Bennett gave the home side the lead in time added on.

Jordan Bowery should have put Rotherham ahead before then but he glanced Ben Pringle’s superb cross wide when it seemed easier to score.

The draw stretched the Millers’ unbeaten run in the Championship to five matches.
