Half-time: Fulham 0 Rotherham 1

Matt Derbyshire’s early goal meant Fulham were behind at the break in the relegation clash at Craven Cottage.

The striker forced the ball in at the near post after Fulham failed to clear their lines, giving the Millers a third-minute lead.

The Whites responded almost immediately when Matt Smith’s hooked volley from a corner was cleared off the line.

But Derbyshire came close to doubling Rotherham’s lead on three occasions, forcing Marcus Bettinelli into two good saves before hitting the post just before the interval.

Bryan Ruiz also went close for the home side, who were booed off at half-time.

Fulham (4-4-2): Bettinelli; Richards, Turner, Burn, Husband; Tunnicliffe, Guthrie, Parker, Bryan; Smith, McCormack
Subs: Kiraly, Hoogland, Stafylidis, Hutchinson, Woodrow, Rodallega, Kavanagh
