A last minute equaliser by Fulham captain Dan Burn prevented Rotherham United winning all three points in a pulsating match at New York Stadium.

An own goal by Fulham defender Nikolay Bodurov had seemingly given Rotherham the victory in the 86th minute before Burn headed a corner past Millers keeper Adam Collin.

Ben Pringle’s drilled shot had hit two Fulham defenders before finding the net as the Millers piled on the pressure but they couldn’t hang on.

Earlier Paul Taylor had given Rotherham the lead against Fulham but Ross McCormack has levelled for the visitors from the penalty spot.

The Millers were rewarded for their early domination in the 28th minute as Taylor cut in from the right to score past Marcus Bettinelli - Alex Revell seemed to claim a touch as the ball went in, although he may have been in an offside position.

Fulham were only behind for five minutes as George Williams was brought down by Lee Frecklington in the penalty area and McCormack lashed the spot kick past Collin.

Jonson Clarke-Harris put Rotherham United back in front against Fulham at New York Stadium midway through the second half but within three minutes the visitors equalised again.

Pringle’s left wing cross was met by a volley from Clarke-Harris which flew past Bettinelli on 55 minutes and Cauley Woodrow made it 2-2 as his left foot shot flew into Collin’s top right hand corner.

Clarke-Harris was rewarded for his Yorkshire derby heroics with a start for Rotherham.

Clarke-Harris came off the bench last Friday to make his home debut and hit the winner against Leeds United two minutes after his introduction.

The 20-year-old striker was partnered with Alex Revell up front, with Matt Derbyshire dropping to the bench.

In the only other change to the starting line-up, Paul Taylor came in for Ryan Hall, who began against Leeds but didn’t even make the bench tonight.

Fulham made five changes to the side which beat high-flying Norwich City on Saturday, mindful that they have a London derby on Friday in front of the Sky TV cameras against Charlton Athletic.

Hugo Rodallega and Bryan Ruiz were rested completely, Scott Parker and Sean Kavanagh were subs while Tim Hoogland missed out injured.

The Millers have extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to four matches.

Rotherham United: Collin, Richardson, Morgan, Arnason, Skarz, Taylor, Frecklington, Green, Pringle, Revell, Clarke-Harris. Subs: Loach, Broadfoot, Bowery, Swift, Derbyshire, Wordsworth, Smallwood.

Fulham: Bettinelli, Stafylidis, Bodurov, Eisfeld, Zverotic, Woodrow, Christensen, Williams, Hyndmanv, Burn, McCormack. Subs: Kiraly, Hutchinson, Parker, Smith, Roberts, Dembele, Kavanagh.
