The Millers are looking to put back-to-back defeats behind them as they take the long trip south to Bournemouth this afternoon.
Rotherham United were rewarded for their toil in the seaside sun as a last-gasp goal earned a point at Bournemouth
The Millers battled gamely in the heat after falling a goal behind and Jordan Bowery headed home a Paul Taylor corner in time added on to secure a point.
Bournemouth centre-half Steve Cook scored after 60 minutes as the second half opened up after a first period during which neither goalkeeper had a save to make.
Callum Wilson hit the post for the Cherries after breaking clear, while substitute Alex Revell was just inches from connecting with a cross from the right from fellow sub Matt Derbyshire for the Millers.
Rotherham attacked in the final 15 minutes but couldn’t find a way through ... until sub striker Bowery made it a sunshine day with his first goal for the club, the ball going in despite the best efforts of Cherries keeper Lee Camp.
Millers new boys Luciano Becchio and Jonson Clarke-Harris started and were both substituted early in the second half.
