ROTHERHAM United suffered late heartbreak when Bradford City found a winner in extra time to beat them 2-1 away, writes Digital Editor Graham Walker.

The result pushes the Millers further away from an automatic promotion spot which earlier in the season looked almost certain.

Now they are in fifth and five points astray but their promotion dream is still very much alive.

Lewis Hunt put the home side ahead after 16 minutes and Marcus Marshall got the equaliser before half time.

A draw and a point each looked on the cards as the game went into extra time but Tom Adeyemi got on the score sheet just 60-seconds into six added minutes.
