Four-star Millers go to town on Bolton with vital win

Story of the game

Rotherham produced a superb second-half display to blow Bolton away in a 4-0 win which moves them out of the Sky Bet Championship drop zone.

After a drab first half where Bolton's Zach Clough and the Millers' Danny Ward traded misses from good chances, it was the hosts who did the damage after the restart.

They went ahead in the 56th minute when Grant Ward fired in from outside of the area before Danny Ward made it 2-0 with a fine finish after rounding Ben Amos before two late goals put the gloss on the afternoon.

Joe Newell slipped home a cool finish and then Jonson Clarke-Harris did the same to make it a Boxing Day to remember.

Key moment

After a scrappy first half, the game could have gone either way in the second, but the Millers started it better and a long spell of pressure was rewarded with Grant Ward's opening goal. That provided the Millers with a platform which they went on to take advantage of.


Grant Ward (1-0 56min) – A short corner found its way to the edge of the area where the on-loan Spurs midfielder controlled it and thumped in a vicious left-footed volley which Ben Amos could not keep out.

Danny Ward (2-0 74min) – The long-awaited Danny Ward goal finally came with a fine finish as he rounded Amos and fired home from an acute angle.

Joe Newell (3-0 80min) – Newell was set clear by Tony Andreu and he coolly slotted under Amos to put the game to bed.

Jonson Clarke-Harris (4-0 86min) – It was a similar finish from the substitute striker after he was put through on goal, calmly placing into the bottom corner.
