Rotherham's home run ended by quickfire QPR

Story of the game

Rotherham's three-game winning run at New York Stadium ended as they were made to pay for missed chances in a 3-0 loss to QPR.

The Millers enjoyed a superb start to the game, pinning Rangers back in their own half and created a host of opportunities to lead.

The best of them came just after the half-hour when Paul Green hit a low shot into the post and Matt Derbyshire somehow allowed Nedum Onuoha to block his rebound when he should have scored.
The dangers of not scoring were apparent and they came to fruition early in the second half as two goals in two minutes won it for the visitors.

First Junior Hoilett rolled into the bottom corner after shirking off several challenges and then Matt Phillips drilled home after latching on to a throughball.

The Millers had nothing in response and suffer a first defeat on home soil since December 5, made worse by Sebastien Polter's late effort.

Key moment

The Millers were well on top during the first half when Paul Green hit the post and the rebound fell to Matt Derbyshire. The striker was slow off the mark and allowed Nedum Onuoha to deflect his shot wide. Not going in front during that spell proved crucial.

Man of the match

Richie Smallwood – More of the same from Smallwood who was Rotherham's engine in midfield. Constantly winning his battles and was the source of most of the attacks.


Junior Hoilett (1-0 52 minutes) – A surging run saw the winger get into the area and he rolled the ball past Lee Camp
Matt Phillips (2-0 54 minutes) – Phillips ran on to a long ball and after slipping past Kirk Broadfoot, he fired home.
Sebastien Polter (3-0 90 minutes) – With the Millers attacking Polter was able to tap in from inside the six-yard box as Rangers broke.


Rotherham: Camp; Facey, Broadfoot, Belaid, Mattock; G Ward, Smallwood, Green, Newell; Derbyshire (Ledesma 80), D Ward (Clarke-Harris 55)
QPR: Smithies; Perch, Hall, Onuoha, Konchesky; Phillips (Chery 87), Henry, Luongo, Hoilett (Mackie 87); Fer, Polter
