Result: Sean Raggett heads Rotherham United to three points against Millwall

Sean Raggett scores a first-half header as Rotherham United beat Millwall 1-0 in Sunday's Championship clash at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham United have earned a 1-0 win over Millwall in this afternoon's Championship fixture, courtesy of a first-half header from Sean Raggett.

The English centre-back converted past Jordan Archer with a quarter of the match played to earn the Millers a second league win of the season.

Victory for United at the New York Stadium lifts them above the Lions in the Championship table on six points from five matches.

The hosts were ahead through the first serious effort of the contest, as Raggett climbed above a sea of Millwall bodies to connect with Will Vaulks's delivery.

Ryan Williams and last season's playoff final hero Richard Wood then came close as Rotherham, who completed a league double over the Lions the last time they met, closed in on a second goal.

Millwall had openings of their own, with Jed Wallace firing wide from 25 yards and testing Marek Rodak late in the first half via a free kick from a similar range.

Semi Ajayi, called up to Nigeria's squad this week, then sent a shot into the side-netting to signal the end of a tight opening 45 minutes.

Millwall were nearly level before the hour as Jake Cooper's close-range header was well kept out by Rodak, soon after Sean Williams had curled a left-footed effort narrowly wide.

An end-to-end second period saw Ryan Manning and Williams exchange shots in quick succession, with neither doing enough to find a way through.

Defeated in three of their last four outings, including each of the last two, United could not quite put the game out of their opponents' reach in the final half-hour of the match.

Michael Smith was denied by Archer when played through, and that miss almost proved costly as Tom Elliott had a shot kept out by Rodak late on as Rotherham held on for the three points.

ROTHERHAM UNITED (4-2-3-1): Rodak; Vyner, Raggett, Wood, Mattock; Vaulks, Ajayi; Williams, Manning, Vassell (Newell 87'); Smith (Proctor 76')

MILLWALL (4-4-2): Archer; McLaughlin, M Wallace, Cooper, Meredith; Wallace, Tunnicliffe (Morison 79'), Williams, O'Brien (Skalak 65'); Gregory (Bradshaw 65'), Elliott
