Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi bagged his second brace of the season when he hit a double for Rotherham United who beat Queens Park Rangers 2-1 at Loftus Road on Wednesday reports Completesports.com.

The Nigerian international lashed an unstoppable shot into the bottom corner in the 71st minute to hand the Millers the lead but Osayi-Samuel bundled home the leveller from close-range for QPR.

The 25-year-old, Ajayi sealed a crucial win for Rotherham when he rose high to power home a header from Anthony Forde’s free-kick to give his side their first victory over QPR for 68 years in additional time.

The brace took his tally to seven goals in 40 appearances for Rotherham United this season in all competitions. Ajayi has now scored five goals in his last four games for Rotherham United.

Rotherham United are now still in the relegation zone on goal difference, while QPR stay in 18th, seven points above the drop.

At Pride Park, Oghenekaro Etebo and Efe Ambrose were both missing in action for Stoke City and Derby County who played out a goalless draw.

The draw sees Derby move back above Bristol City into sixth spot in the Championship, but they are still 17 points off Leeds in second.
