Newcastle Player Scores Twice To Get Rotherham Win

Two goals from on loan Newcastle full-back James Tavernier gave Rotherham a 2-1 home win over Bristol City on Saturday, and they are 4th in League One on 75 points, and only 5 points away from automatic promotion.

James Tavernier after scoring on Saturday

Tavernier played the whole game and scored after just 70 seconds when Ben Pringle’s free-kick was headed clear but from 25 yards out, Tavernier smashed the ball home for a terrific goal.

After 48 minutes Bristol City were level with Wade Elliott scoring a good goal, but then after 60 minutes Tavernier fired home a free kick from just outside the penalty box, to give Rotherham the 2-1 win.

James played the whole game and Haris Vuckic came on after 80 minutes.

Tavernier has now played 21 times for Rotherham with 5 goals, and he is having a successful loan spell and Haris Vuckic has 17 appearances and four goals, but he is not a starter at the moment at Rotherham.

In other weekend games Conor Newton and Adam Campbell both started in St. Mirren’s 2-2 draw at Inverness CT,  and Adam was substituted after 64 minutes in a tactical change.

Shane Ferguson was an unused substitute in Birmingham’s 4-2 home defeat to Bournemouth.
