Hitman Kieffer Moore struck deep into stoppage time to earn Rotherham United a draw in the South Yorkshire showdown against Doncaster Rovers.
Only seconds remained when the country's leading marksmen hit the target at the second attempt to earn the visitors the League One point they deserved.
Substitute David Ball saw a shot saved, Moore's follow-up was blocked and the 6ft 5in striker fired home his 13th goal of the season when the ball came back to him to send the packed away end into raptures.
Rotherham hit the woodwork three times and it would have been cruel had they lost.
Paul Warne's men, roared on by 3,829 travelling fans, should have taken the lead in the 32nd minute.
Semi Ajayi's header from a Ryan Williams cross came back off the bar and Wood's headed follow-up also hit the frame of the goal, with Rotherham claiming the ball was over the line. Wood led the protests, knowing his miss had been a bad one.
Moore wasn't far away for Rotherham in time added on at the end of the first half as he got his head to Joe Newell's free-kick only to see his effort deflected just wide. The second period was only seconds old when the big centre-forward headed another decent opportunity wide.
Rovers took the lead in the 62nd minute and this time Wood did manage to write his name on the scoresheet, miscuing his attempted clearance and volleying into his own net when Rodney Kongolo crossed.
With six minutes to go, the Millers were close to an equaliser when a superb ball from Darren Potter released Jonson Clarke-Harris. However, the sub's shot came back off the post.
Michael Ihiekwe picked up his fifth booking, which means the defender is banned for next week's home clash with Shrewsbury Town.
But that was lost in the Rotherham joy at the end.
