Burnley came from behind to pick up a 2-1 win against Rotherham.Rotherham were left ruing a late save by Brian Jensen as Burnley came from behind to pick up a 2-1 win at Turf Moor.
The Millers took an early shock lead through Phil Gilchrist against a Clarets side that are unaccustomed to both conceding and scoring goals, but Steve Cotterill's man regrouped to level through Tony Grant, and add a second courtesy of skipper Frank Sinclair soon after.
Leandre Griffit, on loan at The Millers from Southampton had an immediate impact on his debut, providing a fine cross for Gilchrist to head home for his first goal of the season.
Micah Hyde fired just over soon after as The Clarets sought a quick-fire equaliser, but it was fellow midfielder Grant that levelled.
John Oster was the provider, picking out the midfielder in the box and allowing Grant to clip home past Mike Pollitt.
Oster was also provider for Burnley's second soon afterwards, his corner powerfully headed home by Sinclair.
Paolo Vernazza saw Brian Jensen equal to an early effort in the second half and fired another shot narrowly wide.
Oster was unlucky not to add a goal to his fine display when his free kick was headed off the line in the last minute, but The Clarets were then thankful to Jensen for denying Gilchrist a brace deep in stoppage time.
