Rotherham 2-0 Ipswich

Town are winless in three games and dropped down to fifth following a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Rotherham United.

Daryl Murphy should have put Town in the lead after only 15 seconds, finding himself through one-on-one but his weak shot was saved by the keepers' legs. Derbyshire gave Rotherham the lead with virtually their first effort on goal; poor defending by Town left him with a free diving header past Bartosz Białkowski.

Town started the second half brightly and put Rotherham under good pressure; Rotherham's keeper equal to Luke Chambers header and a Freddie Sears drive. However, ex-loanee Conor Sammon provided the sucker punch with a driven 12-yard finish, celebrating wildly afterwards. Rotherham almost rubbed salt into wounds with a third in injury time, Białkowski denying Bowery at point-blank range.
