Rotherham United suffer woeful loss to Derby County

Rotherham United suffered a dramatic defeat of 6-1 to Derby County this Saturday.

The Rams were given an early lead after on-loan Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount was tripped, giving the team a penalty, taken by Martyn Waghorn.

Three minutes after, Bradley Johnson’s header gave the team a further lead.

Waghorn came storming through again to claim the team’s third goal, his second one just before half-time.

Mount scored a fourth point after half-time in the 48th minute, followed by Rotherham’s Richard Wood scoring a header from Joe Newells’ corner.

Duane Holmes scored a fifth and Derby finished off in style by Waghorn securing a hat-trick from a second penalty after Tom Lawrence was taken down.

This was the first time Derby had scored six goals in a game since 1996.

Paul Warne, Rotherham manager said he was disappointed and a little embarrassed but didn’t believe the game accurately summed up the team’s season.

Derby are now unbeaten for four matches in a row and have moved into the final play off spot ahead of Middlesborough, who slipped eighth after losing to Norwich.
