Fulham manager Kit Symons was pleased it was his side who got their season up and running with a 3-1 win at Rotherham.

The two teams entered the match without a win in the Sky Bet Championship but it was the visitors who got their season kick-started.

Ex-Miller Ben Pringle gave Fulham a seventh minute lead and Ross McCormack made it two from the penalty spot on 16 minutes.

Matt Derbyshire had a penalty for the hosts saved after 55 minutes before Jonson Clarke-Harris fired a goal back on 72 minutes.

Fulham sub Cauley Woodrow finished the game off four minutes into injury time with a smart finish.

Symons said "It was important we came and put in a decent performance and got three points on the board.

"We made it hard work for ourselves conceding a penalty and giving away a stupid goal but overall I'm very pleased with the performance.

"Until you get that third goal it's never quite comfortable. The third goal in the game is always crucial. We rode our luck a little bit and Lonners (Andy Lonergan) made a great save from the penalty.

"We made poor decisions for the third goal."

He added "I was delighted for Ben Pringle. He's a bit of a crowd favourite here at Rotherham as well and that's why I took him off with a minute or so to go so he could get the recognition I think he deserves from the Rotherham fans.

"He's one of the unsung heroes. He works his socks off the team but he's got good qualities.

"It was nice for him to pop up with the goal."
