Share

Rotherham scored four goals, with three coming from outside the box, to claim an unlikely 4-0 victory over high-flying Blackburn.

Hakeem Odoffin fired the hosts in front after just 31 seconds with a piledriver from the edge of the box.

Blackburn controlled possession throughout yet couldn’t create enough opportunities in front of goal as Oliver Rathbone doubled Rotherham’s lead in the second half by slamming an unstoppable effort off the underside of the crossbar.

Rotherham, who had won just once in their previous 12 league games, then saw Shane Ferguson score direct from a corner before their perfect afternoon was capped when Conor Washington netted in injury time.
