Rotherham United began the New Year, their last at the Don Valley Stadium, with a comfortable victory over Bradford City.
After a goalless first half, the Millers opened the scoring through Lewis Grabban on 63 minutes from close range and Grabban doubled the advantage five minutes later from the penalty spot after Sam Wood was brought down by Jon McLaughlin.
Andy Scott’s team made the match safe 16 minutes from time when Dale Tonge set up Brett Williams to make it 3-0.
The win keeps the Millers within touching distance of the play-offs as the League Two season enters its second half.
