We all love our resident Viking here at Rotherham United and last night, Viktor Johansson played a crucial role as the Millers saw off Port Vale to make it a club-record 17 games unbeaten in all competitions.
The Swede was called into action in normal time to save superbly from David Amoo in the 62nd minute before making an even better stop in injury time.
With Vale pressing for a late winner, Conlon’s strike took a wicked deflection, and was almost turned into the net in bizarre circumstances before Johansson flung across his goalline to claw the effort away.
Then came penalties.
A series of superb spot-kicks followed from the visitors, which the keeper could do very little about before his moment finally came when he held his nerve to stay down the middle and deny Amoo.
This set it up for Joe Mattock to step up and put the Millers through, with a fifth penalty out of five.
Johansson’s heroics saw him claim 52.4% of the 603 votes cast, with Kieran Sadlier, Hakeem Odoffin and Jamie Lindsay also nominated.
