MANAGERLESS Rotherham United kept their slim play-off hopes alive after securing a 2-1 victory at AFC Wimbledon, writes Dom Howson.

Ben Pringle deservedly gave the visitors the lead with a long range effort after 34 minutes to claim his fourth goal of the season and his second in four matches since the shock departure of Andy Scott.

Luke Moore cancelled out Pringle’s opener midway through the second period, moments after Danny Schofield had missed a glorious chance to make it 2-0 to Rotherham.

Lewis Grabban had a shot hacked off the line in the latter stages before substitute Sam Hoskins put them ahead again with seven minutes left, having come on as a replacement for Pringle.

It is the Millers third victory in four matches under caretaker boss Darren Patterson.
