Championship: Iorfa Scores On Wednesday Debut Vs Ajayi’s Rotherham; Etebo Stars In Stoke’s Away Draw

Dominic Iorfa scored in additional time to ensure Sheffield Wednesday secured a 2-2 draw on his debut at Rotherham United who paraded Semi Ajayi and Michael Ihiekwe in an English Championship clash on Saturday, reports Completesports.com.

Iorfa, a late replacement for Jordan Thorniley in the 90th minute, bundled the ball home from close range deep into time added on for stoppages, to deny the Millers three valuable points in their battle to avoid relegation.

Wednesday went ahead thanks to Fernando Forestieri’s goal in the 35th minute, before been pegged back just one minute later after Jon Taylor’s curled strike. 

Rotherham then went ahead on 74 minutes through Richie Towell, before Iorfa found a way to poke the ball beyond Rodak in a goal mouth scramble.. 

Iorfa’s dramatic debut goal ensured the Owls stretched their unbeaten run to five matches under manager Steve Bruce.

Paul Warne’s Rotherham United remain in the Championship relegation zone – 22nd, with Wednesday going up to 15th place.

Ajayi has made 31 appearances this season for Rotherham United. The Millers visit relegation rivals Reading next Saturday, with Wednesday hosting Swansea on the same day.

At Portman Road, Oghenekaro Etebo made his 18th start in the English Championship for Stoke City who were held to a 1-1 draw  at Ipswich Town.

James McClean scored in the 42nd minute to hand Stoke City a one-goal lead at half time but William Keane salvaged a point for Ipswich in the 90th minute.

Ipswich are without any win in eight league matches against Stoke. They have lost four and draw four since a 1-0 win in December 2004.

Etebo has made 24 appearances for Stoke City without any goal.
