READ | JOHANSSON CLAIMS SECOND SUCCESSIVE MATTRESS ONLINE MAN OF THE MATCH AWARD AGAINST LILYWHITES

Rotherham United goalkeeper Viktor Johansson has been voted the Mattress Online Man of the Match for the second time in a week, for his performance in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Preston North End.

The Lilywhites arrived at AESSEAL New York Stadium unbeaten and showed the confidence of a side yet to taste defeat in the opening exchanges, with Johansson forced into action to deny Milutin Osmajic from close range.

That save would prove crucial moments later, when Jordan Hugill robbed Liam Lindsay and curled in a beautiful shot from outside the area to give the Millers the lead.

The home side suffered two blows before the break, with Lindsay atoning for his error with the equaliser on the stroke of half time, with defender Cameron Humphreys pulling up with an injury in virtually the last act of the first 45.

The Millers defended valiantly in the second half and Johansson was ever reliable, with a superb double save the pick of his heroics. First, he denied Ryan Ledson who had taken aim from distance, before acting swiftly to again deny Osmajic from the rebound and help his side claim an impressive point.

Johansson earned 48.8% of the votes cast, with Christ Tiehi, Hugill and Dexter Lembikisa also nominated.
