Superb Millers end Brighton's run on the road

Story of the game

Rotherham made it three Sky Bet Championship home wins in a row after becoming the first team to beat Brighton on home soil this season.

Goals from Danny Ward and Matt Derbyshire sealed the points for Neil Redfearn's men that leaves them three points above the dropzone.

The Millers were the better team for the majority of the game and after bossing the first 45 minutes they took the lead on the stroke of half-time.

Danny Ward superbly sent a first-time volley into the bottom corner from Joe Mattock's cross.

Brighton improved after the break and should have levelled through Dale Stephens, but he sent his shot wide when clean through.

The Millers made the game safe four minutes from time when Derbyshire slammed home from close range.

Key moment

It's usually the Millers that concede during minutes 40-45 but this time they scored and it proved vital. It was just rewards for their first-half dominance and gave them something to hold on to.

Man of the match

Kirk Broadfoot put in a simply monumental defensive performance, winning every header and tackle going. Rotherham's very own Braveheart.


Danny Ward (1-0 45 minutes) – Ward grabbed his second goal of the season as he capitalised on Lewis Dunk's slip to power a first-time volley into the bottom corner.
Matt Derbyshire (2-0 86 minutes ) - The decisive moment came four minutes from time when the Millers striker received a gift in the penalty area and slammed home.


Rotherham: Camp; Facey (Richardson 75), Broadfoot, Belaid, Mattock; G Ward, Smallwood, Green, Newell; Derbyshire, Ward (Clarke-Harris 75).
Brighton: Stockdale, Saltor, Greer (Crofts 83), Dunk, Ridgewell, Knockaert, Stephens, Kayal, Murphy (Lua Lua 72), Wilson (Zamora, 62), Hemed.
