Rotherham United 0-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe moved up to second in League One with a clinical win at Rotherham.​

In a game of few chances, it was the visitors who took their golden one to claim three points.

It came in the fifth minute, with Scott Kashket capitalising on a mix-up between Rotherham's defence and goalkeeper and smashing the ball into the bottom corner past the out-of-position Daniel Iversen.​

Michael Smith had the best chance to level before the break but he did not get enough contact on his header from Chiedozie Ogbene's cross.​

Rotherham reshuffled in the second half in an attempt to get back into the game but remained largely ineffective against a well-organised Wanderers side.​

Kashket saw a sweetly-struck volley acrobatically tipped away by Iversen.​

Adebayo Akinfenwa was brought on by the visitors for the closing stages and he helped to run down the clock through five minutes of time added on.
