A 41st minute from Ian Sharps has given Rotherham United a 1-0 lead here at St James's Park against Exeter City.
The Millers captain rose highest at the near post to head past Artur Krysiak, after the City keeper had done well to save a header from Alex Revell from the previous corner.
Rotherham started the brighter of the two teams, with Ben Pringle putting in a good first half display in midfield. He set up Revell with a sight at goal early on, but Krysiak stood tall at his near post to block his effort on goal.
Exeter City created the better chances after that with Jamie Cureton forcing a good save from Andy Warrington, before Alan Gow curled a shot against the crossbar.
However, as the game approached the interval it was Rotherham who began to pressure once more, resulting in Sharps goal.
