Rotherham United defender Sean Morrison capped off yet another assured display in the heart of the backline by landing the Mattress Online Man of the Match crown following his side’s battling 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough in the Sky Bet Championship.
The skipper contributed to a strong team performance, which restricted Michael Carrick’s Play-off chasing side to limited opportunities.
A resolute defensive display paved the way for Cafu to open the scoring with 59 minutes on the clock, when he coolly slotted home from Jordan Hugill’s defence-splitting pass.
The Millers dug deep as Boro through everything at it in search of an equaliser and the pressure eventually told with nine minutes of the contest remaining, when Marcus Forss capitalised on some clevery interplay between Hayden Hackney and Matt Crooks to equalise.
The home side went in search of a winner but couldn’t find a way through a stubborn rearguard, with Morrison typically timing a block to perfection in injury time to prevent a winner.
The captain saw himself voted the Mattress Online Man of the Match with 51.4% of the 593 votes cast, seeing off competition from Sam Clucas, Cafu and Viktor Johansson.
