Rotherham 0-1 Newcastle: Christian Atsu fires Rafa Benitez to victory
Newcastle needed only a Christian Atsu strike to earn victory over Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.

Newcastle's Yoan Gouffran had two early shots on goal with one blocked and the other straight at Lee Camp in a frantic start.
