Earlier this evening Rotherham United went into battle with Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.
Rotherham had been unbeaten for a few games prior to last weekend’s defeat, but QPR’s form was significantly worse, so spirits were high that Paul Warne’s side could take another much needed victory tonight.
The game was goalless at the halftime break, however improvement in the second 45 saw a brace of goals from Semi Ajayi as he struck a pearler in the 71st minute and added a second five minutes into stoppage-time. The late effort was needed as after taking the lead, QPR hit back with five minutes remaining on the clock. But having edged chances across the game, the three points were the least Rotherham deserved really.
It was also a first second tier victory for the club over the hosts in 68 years.
A number of reasons for travelling fans to be happy after that one.
