Rotherham 0-1 Plymouth
Plymouth edged a victory which increases the pressure on under-fire Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore.

Mathias Doumbe's second-half header from close range was enough to secure the away win for Plymouth.

Rotherham's best chances fell to Richie Barker and Chris Swailes but Moore's side again struggled in front of goal.

It took a smart save from goalkeeper Mike Pollitt to prevent David Norris adding a second for Plymouth, who were marginally the better side.

  • Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore:

    "Every one of my players worked their socks off and for that I've got to be grateful.

    "We're just still lacking that bit of quality in all areas but particularly in the final third of the field.

    "The good thing is we didn't throw in the towel when we went 1-0 down - but at the end of the day it's another defeat, which hurts."

  • Plymouth boss Bobby Williamson:

    "It was always going to be difficult but it was a good performance and a good victory.

    "Rotherham can count themselves unfortunate not to have got a point but we defended really well and scored a goal from a set-piece, which was pleasing."
