Winning start to year for Millers

ROTHERHAM United kicked off 2012 with a 3-0 win against Bradford City at Don Valley Stadium this afternoon.

After a dour first half, two goals in four minutes midway through the second half from top scorer Lewis Grabban, the second from the penalty spot, set the Millers on their way. Substitute Brett Williams capped the win with an audacious effort from out wide on 75 minutes.

Andy Scott’s side  included a new goalkeeper in Rhys Taylor, in on a month’s loan from Chelsea following the departure of Conrad Logan back to Leicester City.
