Bradford City 0-1 Rotherham United

Haris Vuckic hit the only goal of the game as Rotherham United beat Bradford City at Valley Parade.

The Newcastle United loan man found the corner from just inside the penalty area on 20 minutes after a surging run from Lee Frecklington.

City rarely looked like levelling - and it took two fine saves from Jon McLaughlin to prevent James Tavernier from increasing the Millers' lead.

Phil Parkinson's side are now without a home win in three months.

The only serious save Rotherham keeper Adam Collin had to make was to keep out a first-half effort from Garry Thompson.
