Twitter Reacts: Doncaster Rovers 1-1 Rotherham United

Kieffer Mooreโ€™s 96th minute equaliser against Doncaster Rovers set the large travelling contingent from Rotherham into rapturous scenes, late on in the South Yorkshire derby.

Here’s how Twitter users reacted to the result:

Bet365 tweeted:

The towering striker who is on loan at the Millers from Championship side Ipswich Town, is currently the top goal scorer in English football with a tally of 13 goals.

Some Rotherham fans enjoyed some banter regarding their local rivals:

Rotherham United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, who came on as a substitute in the 74th minute, expressed his delight at the result:

Another striker, in the form of former Rotherham United and current Bolton Wanderers attacker Adam Le Fondre also tweeted his thoughts:

Le Fondre scored over 50 goals during his time playing for Rotherham, becoming a fans’ favourite for his goal-scoring exploits. He has netted just once so far this season in a second to bottom placed Bolton side.

In the match, supporters and staff from both clubs perhaps had justified reasons to criticise match referee Graham Scott. Rotherham fan Tim Gillatt shared his thoughts on the issue:

Tweets from the Doncaster faithful weren’t all doom and gloom after looking like the match winners to conceding late on. This supporter took some positives from the 1-1 draw:

However, for most Doncaster fans that late equaliser will have made the draw feel almost like a defeat. Some Rovers fans however seemingly wanted to contend that the euphoric Millers were perhaps a little over-excited with their late goal:

All the banter aside. It was a game in which Doncaster Rovers midfielder James Coppinger marked his 550th appearance for Rovers, and the 36 year-old should be recognised for his devotion to the club:

This result meant that both clubs moved up in the league table. Doncaster move up to 17th place while the Millers now occupy the last play-off spot in 6th place, just one point above 7th placed Blackburn.

The two sides will meet again at The AESSEAL New York Stadium on February 24th 2018.
