Yesterday’s game at Turf Moor saw Championship leaders Burnley score twice in stoppage time to get three points from Rotherham United.

The game, on 2 November, saw 17, 572 fans attend Turf Moor to watch the game between Championship toppers Burnley and Rotherham United, who are now the 13th in the Championship table.

A strong performance was expected from Burnley, as the two sides were not close. However, the Millers got off to a bright start, in the third minute, when Ben Wiles goal via header gave his team the lead. 

In the 35th minute, Jay Rodriguez’s close-range header helped Burnley level. This is his ninth goal of the season. 

The United had made two substitutions in the 63rd minute, this saw Rotherham United’s substitute, Chiedozie Ogbene, restore the visitors’ lead midway through the second half. But – Cohen Bramall was sent off for two yellow cards within seven minutes.

Manuel Benson’s cracker, after passing through two Millers’ players in the stoppage time, put the Clarets back on level. The Belgian substitute also played a big part in the winning goal from forward Dervisoglu.

His shot was saved by Viktor Johansson, and Dervisoglu was on hand to dead chick and move Burnley five points clear from the top of the Championship.

Burnley have been unbeaten in their last 15 matches in the Championship, which is the current longest streak in the division. However, Rotherham United have won just two of their last 14 matches in the Championship.

Vincent Kompany, Burnley’s boss, said: “The important thing is that we kept just doing what we do, and we were really unlucky not to score more, but we were lucky that the goals came in the last minutes.

“You need the depth in quality otherwise you make substitutions, and they don’t change the game. It’s a team that’s fit, can run for 95 [minutes] and beyond, and it happens with experience.”

He continues: “It’s the Championship, so every game is difficult. There’s no game you can be expected to win and our toughest games [so far] have probably been against teams who are nearer the bottom of the league now.”

Matt Taylor, Rotherham United’s boss, said : “A lot of the performances I can’t pick fault with. Players do switch off in certain moments and there’s learning moments and learning curves throughout that 90 minutes as there is in every game of football.

“Cohen has to understand that he can’t give the ref an opportunity, even a decision to make on the second press, especially when it’s happening in such a quick succession. But he’s a young kid learning the game as well and like I said, those moments didn’t go our way tonight.”
