Loan watch - Grant nets stunner for Millers

Posted on 3 October 2015  - 08:09

Grant Ward opened his Championship goalscoring account for Rotherham United in some style on Friday night, although it wasn’t enough to see his side claim any points from their home clash with Burnley.


Our on-loan midfielder was restored to the Millers’ starting line-up by caretaker boss Eric Black and, after seeing his side go 1-0 down, produced a moment of magic to level the scores.

Shifting the ball onto his right foot, Grant found space 25 yards from goal and arrowed an unstoppable strike into the top corner of the net with 15 minutes of the match remaining.

Burnley hit back six minutes later, though, to inflict a 2-1 defeat on the hosts.

Grant completed the full 90 minutes.
