A goal seven minutes into time added saw Rotherham United lose the South Yorkshire derby showdown with Sheffield Wednesday at a packed AESSEAL New York Stadium.

The Millers had led 2-1 in the 87th minute through Ben Pringle and Jordan Bowery.

But Atdhe Nuhiu’s 92nd-minute header and Kieran Lee’s cool 97th-minute finish turned the match on it’s head.

With relegation rivals Wigan drawing at home to Bolton, defeat leaves Steve Evans’ men five points clear of the drop zone going into the international break.
