‘Common sense prevails’ – Many Rotherham United fans react to striker news



Rotherham United have won their appeal against the red card issued to striker Michael Smith in their South Yorkshire derby with Sheffield Wednesday in midweek.

The 29-year-old was sent off for violent conduct during the tie with the Owls on Wednesday night and looked set to be suspended for the next three matches.

But, the Millers used collated footage to appeal against the decision on Thursday morning and successfully got the red card overturned, meaning the forward is now available for Rotherham’s trip to Brentford on Saturday.

A late goal in injury-time from Freddie Ladapo sealed the three points against their South Yorkshire rivals after Smith had put Paul Warne’s side in front. Matthew Olosunde’s own goal looked to have given Wednesday a point until Ladapo struck in the 96th minute.
