Once again Crawley were unable to hold on to a lead as they went down 2-1 after Mat Sadler had put them ahead against the run of play after just 14 minutes.
Kieran Agard equalised in the 36th minute when he nodded home from close range at a corner with David Worrall, who came close to signing for Reds during the summer, scoring the winner with 14 minutes to go.

Rotherham continued create the better of the chances with Alex Revell heading narrowly wide and it was no surprise when they equalised in the 36th minute.
