Burnley 2-1 Rotherham
Burnley came from behind to pile further misery on to the Championship's bottom side Rotherham.

Phil Gilchrist's first goal of the season gave the struggling visitors an unexpected lead as he headed home after just four minutes.

But within 10 minutes Burnley were ahead as first Tony Grant's shot then Frank Sinclair's header made it 2-1.

The home side continued to press, but Burnley keeper Brian Jensen denied Gilchrist a last-gasp equaliser.

  • Burnley manager Steve Cotterill:
    "We have played better and ended with nothing so I will take the points even though I admit that Rotherham did very well.

    "The only bits of quality football we produced culminated in both our goals but Rotherham did not make it easy.

    "They looked more relaxed. We were a bit edgy - it's an important win."

  • Rotherham caretaker boss Alan Knill:
    "When your luck is out it is out and we are finding that to be the case at the moment.

    "The positive is the fact that the players kept going and showed a great attitude and I know that if we carry on like that then our luck will turn.

    "How we came away from the game with nothing is a mystery for we were comfortably the better side."
