Dan Barlaser started his sixth straight for Rotherham this afternoon. They were up against Newcastle’s potential FA Cup opponents Oxford United at home. It was another excellent display from the 22-year-old in a 3-1 victory.
Dan got an assist on Kyle Vassell’s second goal as the Millers built a 3-0 first-half lead. Barlaser was substituted in the 92nd minute. The win is Rotherham’s fourth straight and moves them top of League One.

In what could have been his last game for Wycombe Wanderers, Rolando Aarons was an unused substitute at Sunderland this afternoon. It was just no good as Wycombe lost the match 4-0, and Sunderland have suddenly started to pick up points.
It’s been the opposite for Wycombe, who since taking over top spot have only picked up 1 point in their last five matches and find themselves behind Rotherham on goal difference. Sunderland have moved up to a playoff spot and are unbeaten in their previous six.
Aarons is due to return to Newcastle on Monday in what has to be considered a disappointing loan spell. Rolando made only seven starts and 13 appearances in all competitions with 2 goals.
#Chairboys XI: Allsop, Phillips, Stewart, Charles, Jacobson, Thompson, Gape, Bloomfield, Smyth, Wheeler, Samuel.
Subs: Pattison, Kashket, Akinfenwa, Freeman, Aarons, Parker, Ofoborh.#SUNvWYC
