Academy 4 v 3 Chesterfield - Report

22 November 2015

Rotherham United recorded back-to-back Youth Alliance league victories after a 4-3 victory over local neighbours Chesterfield.

In a seven goal thriller, the Millers came from 3-0 behind to force a sensational victory with a goal in injury time from Brandon Potts sealing the three points.

Other goals from the free-scoring Kuda Muskwe (2), Darnelle Bailey-King and an own goal ensured a dramatic turnaround for the Millers.

“At 3-0 down at half-time the lads showed great character to come back and win,” Barker told

“In the first 45 minutes we were poor and that may be complacency after playing really well the week before against Bradford. We didn’t play with any real organisation, so we spoke with them at half-time, changed the shape slightly and they responded.

“We told them to play with some pride and the response we got was very good. I’ve never been involved in a 3-0 turnaround and it could have been more because we hit the upright too, and Kuda also missed a one-on-one. It could have been 6-3.”
