Accrington boss John Coleman felt there was nothing wrong with his side's late equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Rotherham.

The Millers were disappointed Sean Hessey's quick free-kick seven minutes from time was allowed to stand with Conrad Logan still assembling the wall.

Ryan Cresswell had headed Rotherham in front at the break before Hessey's controversial strike levelled matters.

Coleman said: "I don't think the referee determined which way the game went even if they were disappointed with the quick free-kick.

"Sean Hessey had asked to take it quickly and the ref said yes so Rotherham can have no complaints.

"I think both teams went for it and could have won. I was pleased with our performance, we took the game to Rotherham and they scored with their only attempt on goal in the first half and that's disappointing."
