'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Division One Status Retained.

The Millers got the draw that kept them in League One and sent MK Dons down - but the Dons fought every inch of the way for their survival.

The Dons weathered the expected early storm from Rotherham which saw Matt Baker in action to save from Gregor Robertson.

The Millers continued to dominate and Shaun Barker was only just wide with a header, when he should have done better.

In the first minute of the second half the Dons had a great chance when Clive Platt's header was only just over the bar.

Martin Butler should have settled it for Rotherham when he had only the keeper to beat but Baker stuck out a boot to deflect the ball for a corner.

And in the final minutes Neil Cutler made the save of the day to deny McLeod

All in all enough was done to retain division one football at Millmoor next season.

The fans at the game yesterday were superb, next season we need that at every home game to make Millmoor the fortress it once was.
