After the game, a club statement read: “We are embarrassed to once again comment on the behavior of some fans, who are absolutely not representative of the majority or what they are. I represent a club.”

Rotherham confirmed that two fans were banned for their conduct at yesterday’s match.

Accrington boss John Coleman said: “It’s one of those situations where Pelly is desperate to make it because he has also been assaulted.

“Is that the right thing to do? It’s easy to be wise after the event. He had no intention of missing the penalty.

“I feel physically exhausted. I’m beaten and I have nothing to give. I can’t fight back. I can’t criticize. I’m proud of the way the players played today.”
