FOUR excellent goals, all from outside the penalty area, highlighted Rotherham's 4-2 win over Barnsley in the Central League at the Don Valley Stadium last night.

The best was the first by Ryan Taylor who, 35 yards out, showed great precision to send an inch-perfect effort floating over Kyle Letheren, who wasn't that far off his line.

Michael Coulson cleverly flicked a centre for Alistair Taylor inside the far post for the equaliser just past the half-hour. Jamile Adam took advantage of defensive misjudgement to put Barnsley in front.

But Rotherham levelled three minutes into the second half when Peter Holmes struck a low drive into the far corner.

Young midfielder Grant Darley surged with determination to drive home low from 25 yards to put the Millers ahead.

Jacob Butterfield missed a good chance for Barnsley and Marc Newsham might have scored twice for Rotherham before Taylor hit Rotherham's fourth from 20 yards.
