The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the performances at New York Stadium.

Rotherham (4-1-4-1)

Lee Camp 6

Went off with a knee injury after 35 minutes and it will be a huge blow if he is out for any length of time.

Stephen Kelly 5

Bad defending from such an experienced player to allow Charlie Taylor so much space in which to cross for Leeds United’s opener.

Dominic Ball 6

Guilty of a terrible miss near the end, but decent on the ground and Chris Wood didn’t have the physical effect on him some were expecting.

Richard Wood 7

Excellent header for the goal and the centre-half was solid and committed at the back.

Darnell Fisher 5

Looks short of confidence. Has never been the best defender and now is attacking play is lacking zip.

Greg Halford

Off almost before he’d begun. Thankfully, his injured ankle isn’t broken.

Izzy Brown 5

So much talent but too often wasted. Needs to look like he wants it more. His header set up Wood’s goal.

Tom Adeyemi 6

Battled hard and could be an important player for the Millers when his fitness is fully up to speed.

Joe Newell 6

Threatened at times in a more central role before coming off with a hamstring problem.

Peter Odemwingie 0

All the experience in the world yet let his team down when they really needed him. Deserved red card for elbowing Liam Cooper.

Danny Ward 6

Tried as hard as ever as a lone striker. Lovely header to play in Odemwingie for a ‘goal’ disallowed for offside.

Substitutes

Will Vaulks 7

On for Halford and was a real physical presence and competitor.

Lewis Price 6

Replaced Camp. Good save to deny Kalvin Phillips just after Richard Wood’s goal.

Anthony Forde 6

On for Newell in the 76th minute and looked sharp and quite threatening.

Subs not used: Mattock, Fry, Belaid, Yates.
