Ellis Harrison’s superb goal helped Bristol Rovers to a convincing win over Rotherham United on Saturday, as they climbed off the bottom of the League Two table.
Rotherham’s Claude Davis was sent-off on his debut for the Millers as they slipped out of the play-off spots.
It was Davis who bundled over Ryan Brunt to earn Rovers a penalty, which was converted by midfielder Lee Brown.
The defender then received a second yellow card just before half-time.
Youngster Ellis Harrison then made it 2-0 after running down the left and cutting in to finish with aplomb.
Ellis Harrison’s superb solo effort made it 2-0 and Joe Anyinsah drilled home a third before substitute David Noble grabbed a consolation.
It was a memorable first senior goal for 18-year-old Harrison, who turns 19 this week and is in his first year as a professional after coming through the club’s youth set-up.
He had only been on the pitch for two minutes, having come on as a substitute for Eliot Richards, when he picked up the ball on the half-way line, weaved through the Millers’ defence and fired a fierce right-footed shot past Andy Warrington.
