The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the players’ performances in the 2-2 home draw against Bristol City.
Lee Camp 8
The goalkeeper is showing last season’s Player-of-the-Year form. Plenty to do and some quality saves.
Darnell Fisher 6
One terrific block in the first half to save a certain goal. Wasted the ball now and then but had a steady game.
Dael Fry 6
An encouraging debut from the teenager. A big physical unit who is mobile and looks to pass the ball.
Kelvin Wilson 6
Nothing great, nothing bad. His experience will help to bring on Fry alongside him.
Stephen Kelly 5
A tough ask to keep playing on his ‘wrong’ side. Not his best game but he never stopped trying.
Jon Taylor 7
His pace was stretching Bristol City and asking questions of them until he departed injured at half-time.
Greg Halford 7
Another big unit, and he made his presence felt in midfield. The Millers were more solid with him in there.
Dominic Ball 6
Started really well in midfield but faded in the second half. Defends, is good on the ball and sees a pass.
Joe Newell 6
First start after injury. Some loose touches but some telling moments of trickery. Good to see him back.
Izzy Brown 8
Revelled in the ‘No 10’ role. Has real quality on the ball. Scored his first goal and was a danger throughout.
Danny Ward 7
Another tireless shift and another player who caused problems. Blotted his copybook with a bad miss.
Anthony Forde 5
On for the second half in place of Taylor but did little to affect proceedings
Will Vaulks 5
Replaced Newell after 69 minutes and needlessly gave away the foul that led to Bristol’s first goal.
An 81st-minute substitute for Brown, he didn’t have the opportunity to make his attacking talent count.
Subs not used: Laurence Bilboe, Joe Mattock, Jake Forster-Caskey, Jerry Yates.
