Rotherham manager Steve Evans was pleased with what he saw in the 2-1 victory over Morecambe at the New York Stadium.
The visitors took the lead after 29 minutes with virtually their first attack, Jack Redman racing through Rotherham's defence to set up former Millers player Kevin Ellison.
Rotherham's fightback began when Kari Arnason's 64th-minute cross took a wicked deflection to set up Daniel Nardiello's first goal, before Bob Harris picked out Nardiello just a minute later to slam his second.
"When we were a goal down at half-time, I felt for the players," said Evans. "But you have to be quite strict with them and get them going again for the second half.
"I think a fair reflection would have been 3-1 at half-time. But there are going to be games like this and then it's not about ability, it's about what's in your heart.
"I regard Morecambe as a good side with a good manager and good players, but I have never doubted the character we have in our dressing room. I think we played some absolutely outstanding football tonight and Jim Bentley said afterwards that our victory was thoroughly deserved and I think it was."
