Sean Raggett’s first-half goal gave Rotherham an important 1-0 Championship win over Millwall at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
Raggett, on a season-long loan from Norwich, headed home in the 20th minute and that proved enough for the Millers to earn their second victory of the season in awful Bank Holiday conditions.
It continued a miserable week in South Yorkshire for Millwall as this followed up a midweek loss at Sheffield Wednesday, though they fashioned enough chances to maybe have earned a draw.
Set-pieces have been Rotherham’s biggest threat this season and so it proved again as, after a non-descript start, they took a 20th-minute lead.
A short throw-in was played back to Will Vaulks and his precise cross was headed home by Raggett for his first league goal for the Millers.
That leaves Rotherham, who were promoted from League One last season, with six points from their opening five games – a perfectly respectable start for Paul Warne’s side.
