The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the performances at Cardiff City Stadium.
Richard O’Donnell 4
His shot-stopping has been good at times, but signs that he isn’t the bravest goalkeeper and likes to stay on his line.
Stephen Kelly 5
Coped quite well with the speedy, skilful threat of Kadeem Harris early on, but sucked into the general malaise thereafter.
Joel Ekstrand 4
A couple of good headers and tackles, but at fault for the third goal.
Richard Wood 5
Defiant in the air. However, his defence leaked five goals.
Ben Purrington 5
He gave the second goal away but, relax, he’s going to have better days and be a good player for the Millers.
Richie Smallwood 4
Unusually for him, he was a peripheral figure and unable to have a significant impact on the game.
Jon Taylor 6
His effort couldn’t be questioned. Nothing much happened for him, but he never stopped running.
Will Vaulks 4
Struggled to get up to speed and was too rushed in his passing.
Joe Newell 4
One of two clever touches, but not enough of them. Injured towards the end but had to stay on.
Joe Mattock 4
Looked like a left-back trying to be a left midfielder and was taken off after an ineffectual first-half display.
Dexter Blackstock 3
Showed no mobility or fight. Gave Sol Bamba probably the easiest game he’ll have this season.
Anthony Forde 4
On at half-time for Joe Mattock but the improvement was only slight.
Jerry Yates 5
Ran hard after replacing Dexter Blackstock in the 59th minute and always showed for the ball.
Aimen Belaid 5
Came on for Joel Ekstrand in the 68th minute.
