The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, marks the players out of 10 after the 3-0 Championship defeat at Villa Park
Lee Camp 7
Not to blame for any of the goals and pulled off one stunning first-half save to deny Aly Cissokho.
Stephen Kelly 5
Made captain for the afternoon. Gave away the ball too much and looked unsure of himself at times.
Dominic Ball 6
Baptism of fire against Rudy Gestede. First game. Signs of a player there.
Richard Wood 5
Beaten by Gestede for the first goal. Soldiered on after a cut to the head. A difficult day against Gestede.
Joe Mattock 5
Not showing his form of last season and substituted in the second half in a tactical switch.
Jake Forster-Caskey 5
Undoubted technical ability, but yet to have an influence on a game. First player to be taken off.
Will Vaulks 6
Couldn’t impose himself as he had against Wolves, although he has a big leap and won midfield headers.
Richie Smallwood 7
Mr 7/10. Never stopped working, kept getting and giving the ball, always involved.
Anthony Forde 5
Not enough end product, although the winger has pace and balance and can deliver a good cross.
Danny Ward 6
Didn’t get the best service. Won more than his share of headers and worried Villa on occasion.
Jon Taylor 5
Rotherham never really got their biggest threat into the game. There’ll be other days.
Jerry Yates 5
Came on for Forster-Caskey after 59 minutes as the Millers switched to 4-4-2.
Darnell Fisher 6
Brought on for his debut as Mattock departed in the 71st minute and looked quick and mobile.
Unused subs: Lewis Price, Kelvin Wilson, Tom Thorpe, Scott Allan, Mason Warren.
