Rotherham extended their unbeaten start in League Two with a slender 1-0 victory over Hereford.

A strike on the stroke of half-time from Paul Warne clinched the Millers' victory to record their third win in their opening four games.

Several chances fell Hereford's way in the early stages without any response from Rotherham.

Hereford skipper Janos Kovacs stooped low to meet a free-kick from James McQuilkin but goalkeeper Andy Warrington saved his on-target header on the line.

Midfielder McQuilkin also drove a 35-yard shot wide of the Rotherham goal as Hereford piled on the pressure.

Veteran goalkeeper Warrington then clawed away header from Sean Canham under the crossbar.

Rotherham responded with Kevin Ellison drilling a 30-yard free-kick into the arms of Hereford keeper Adam Bartlett.

The Millers, however, went in front against the run of play in the 45th minute when Warne headed past Bartlett from close range after Adam Le Fondre's cross.

Straight after the interval Warrington was in action again when he made a fine stop to deny Canham as Hereford took up the running again.

Striker Stuart Fleetwood however, should have equalised in the 68th minute but the former Charlton striker shot wide from eight yards.
