Dan Harding scored as Brighton beat Rotherham 1-0.Rotherham United's brief foray into winning ways was ended at one game, with Brighton & Hove Albion picking up a 1-0 victory against The Championship's bottom club.
A single goal from Dan Harding eight minutes from time sunk The Millers on their travels, and The Seagulls were worthy winners.
Buoyed by victory over Leeds United in their last outing, Rotherham had started strongly and Michael Kuipers did well to save an early effort from Junior.
However, Brighton got into their stride and saw veteran Steve Claridge test Mike Pollitt on two occasions.
After the break, Leon Knight missed a glorious chance to give the hosts the lead, fluffing his shot from close range, and despite the pressure it was beginning to look like The Millers would hang on for a point.
However, inside the final ten minutes, Darren Currie's free-kick fell kindly for Harding to lash home and claim the points.
