DANNY SCHOFIELD scored from the best move of the match to earn Town Reserves a point at Millmoor.
The talented wingman - making his return after illness - pounced with an accurate 43rd-minute finish afterJohn McAliskey's clever back heel had rewarded neat build-up from James Hand.
The goal wiped out Michael Keane's seventh minute strike for Rotherham which punished very sloppy defensive work and the result leaves Town still trailing the leaders in Pontin's Central Division.
Trialist Jason St Juste started at left-back and then played left wing before being replaced after 65 minutes - a first-half overlap and cross being the best of his work.
Centre-back David Mirfin was taken off at the same time with Saturday's first-team clash with leaders Colchester in mind, and coach John Dungworth gave a chance to Daniel Racchi and Joe Skarz, who both did well.
While Town created little in the second half of a match which was ruined by a strong wind - Rotherham winger Sam Duncum was the best player on show - they could count themselves unlucky not to be ahead at the break.
McAliskey fired a shot against a post on 24 minutes and then, 10 minutes later, Adnan Ahmed curled a free-kick against the underside of the bar before McAliskey's follow-up was headed from the line by Liam King.
Paul Rachubka, who saved well from Keane before the goal, denied the same player on 47 minutes as Rotherham started the second half in lively style, and Town needed some strong tackles by Tom Clarke and Mirfin to keep the home side at bay.
Rachubka made a great save with his feet to deny Martin Butler and then, right at the end, substitute Ryan Taylor blazed over from a clear chance to win the game for the hosts.
Town - Rachubka, Hardy, St Juste (Skarz 65), Ahmed, Mirfin (Racchi 65), T Clarke, Walls, Young, McAliskey, Schofield, Hand. Subs not used: Highley, Biddle, Eastwood.
