Harry Darling scored a stunning equalizer to help Swansea produce one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. Cheidozie Ogebene scored the opener for the hosts in the 16th minute before Darling equalized in the 38th minute. Although they scored first, Rotherham United have their goalkeeper Andy Fisher to thank for rescuing a point.
Rotherham’s Paul Warne: “I thought the lads worked really hard out of possession. I thought the crowd got it. They know the quality of the opposition, it’s not a League One game where you can throw the kitchen sink in the last 20 minutes. Overall I was really pleased. We have conceded a 30-yard screamer from a £1.5million center-half, there is no shame in that. We limited them to very few attempts on goal, although in fairness they did miss a gilt-edged chance. I was really pleased with the work ethic. It is very hard to get a point in this league. They are exhausted.”
Swansea’s Russell Martin: “I think he (Darling) really grew after the goal. I thought he got better and better. Harry did a great, brilliant goal, we know he possesses the ability to do that. It’s strange that in a game where we had some really good chances that were the ones that went in. We deserved at least that. He did it for us at MK a few times but he possesses real quality. The goal will do him the world of good. I am frustrated with the scoreline, I thought we created more than enough to win. Paul (Warne) will say they had some shots, but we had some excellent chances. I am really pleased with so many aspects of the performance. We started brilliantly and when they scored there was a bit of anxiety, but the way we recovered was brilliant.”
