Wolves 2-0 Rotherham
A Kenny Miller brace saw Wolves stretch their unbeaten run to 16 games with victory against relegated Rotherham.

Wolves had a lucky escape when Jamal Campbell-Ryce forced Michael Oakes to push away his effort and Tony Thorpe just failed to meet the rebound.

But it was Miller who broke the deadlock when he fired in a Mikkel Bischoff header from close range.

He then sealed it with a great strike into the bottom corner after good work from substitute Rohan Ricketts.

  • Wolves manager Glenn Hoddle:
    "I'm delighted with the way the players responded to my little chat at half-time.

    "These are three very good points for us and I'm pleased that we managed to turn things round.

    "We have played 100 times better than we did in the first half but still drawn.

    "So it's very pleasing to see us show so much character after the break to get the points."

  • Rotherham manager Mick Harford
    "It's a harsh scoreline and I think 2-0 flatters Wolves.

    "We had more chances but you have got to score when you are on top and we didn't. But there are lots of positives to take from the performance.

    "We had a lot of young kids out there and they didn't let themselves down. I'm not daft enough to sit here and tell you everything in the garden is rosy. But this was encouraging. We have to make sure we build on it."
