Cauley Woodrow rounded Lee Camp to give Fulham an early lead, but Farrend Rawson equalised on the 20-minute mark for fellow strugglers Rotherham following a goalmouth scramble.

It looked like the two teams would go in level at the break, but Woodrow struck again on the stroke of half time, converting Ross McCormack's centre to restore the hosts' lead.

Fulham then went two goals to the good in the 59th minute through Alexander Kacaniklic, who benefited from more neat link-up play between strikers Woodrow and McCormack.

McCormack sealed the win 10 minutes later with a powerful finish, with Fulham moving six points clear of the relegation zone. Rotherham stay 21st, only outside the bottom three on goal difference.

Jokanovic, who was announced as the Cottagers' new boss on Sunday, will take charge of his first game at home against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
