Rotherham began the day knowing that 3 points would be more than welcome if we are to stay in Division one for another season.
But the Millers had to settle for a point in a 2-2 draw as Brentford twice came from behind to keep their promotion hopes on track.
An all-action first half saw the Bees held under the cosh by their relegation-haunted hosts, but it took Rotherham until just before the break to take the lead.
Goalkeeper Neil Cutler's free-kick was picked up by Martin Butler wide on the left and his cross was headed home by John Mullin.
Lloyd Owusu levelled for Brentford in the second period, rising to meet Jay Tabb's corner.
But the Millers regained the lead soon after when Butler broke clear on the left and from his cross the outstretched leg of Paul Shaw stabbed the ball past Stuart Nelson.
Isaiah Rankin then chipped a perfect shot from the edge of the area to level again, and although the linesman's flag went up, he was over-ruled by referee Clive Oliver.
All in all a point is better than nothing, but its a game the Millers should have taken all 3 points from.
