Nottingham Forest, still hopeful of automatic promotion, were taunted by the small following from South Yorkshire with 'Championship, you`re having a laugh` after the Millers took a point at The City Ground today.

Rotherham United, who are favourites for relegation, opened the scoring on ten minutes when Chris O`Grady skipped past ex Miller Ian Breckin and smashed the ball past Paul Smith into the top of the net from twenty yards out. The Millers could have taken the lead earlier when Smith punched out a ball which hit Ian Sharps on the chest and bounced just wide. Forest should have had the equaliser straight away when Nathan Tyson was one on one with Millers 'keeper Neil Cutler but Cutler just managed to get a hand to the shot that looked certain to be going in. But Forest got their goal on the twenty-first minute when referee, Mr Thorpe, pointed to the penalty spot after Craig Fleming brought down Tyson. Grant Holt gave Cutler no chance with the shot. Delroy Facey was denied a goal before half-time with a save from Smith and Ian Henderson shot wide when it looked easier to score with Stephen Brogan, who played his socks off for the visitors today, saving off the line to deny Grant Holt a second. Forest looked lacklustre and were booed off by the 25 000 home supporters at half-time.

The second half saw both teams defending deep although O`Grady should have scored straight after the break but shot into the side netting from just seven yards out and only a brilliant save from Neil Cutler stopped a Kris Commons free kick going in. Cutler made another save late on from Grant Holt and David Worrell cleared off the line from Commons.

A point wasn`t much good to either team today, but saying that, Forest are still in with a chance of automatic promotion and the fat lady is still waiting in the wings for The Millers.

There was a few contenders for man of the match today - Neil Cutler making some great saves, Woodsy again on song, but went for youngster Brogan as he never stopped running today.
