Rotherham United 1-2 Oxford United

Oxford United made it seven League One games unbeaten as they claimed victory at Rotherham.

​Oxford took the lead in the 23rd minute out of nothing with Tariqe Fosu collecting the ball on the edge of the box and driving a powerful shot beyond the reach of Daniel Iversen.​

​Rotherham's response saw them unsuccessfully appealing for a penalty with Chris Cadden's block from Jake Hastie's goal-bound effort striking his own arm.​

​The Millers levelled in the 35th minute with Michael Ihiekwe finishing off a move which he started from central defence.​

​The defender's marauding run resulted in a cross coming in from Michael Smith and Ihiekwe was in position to bravely nod past Simon Eastwood.​

​Oxford retook the lead in the 57th minute with Fosu expertly finding Matty Taylor who guided his header beyond the reach of Iversen.​

​The visitors had opportunities to stretch their lead with John Mousinho's effort being deflected just over and Fosu striking the post in added time.
