The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the performances at Hillsborough.
LEWIS PRICE 7
Goalkeeper standing in so well for Lee Camp did nothing wrong and almost got to an excellent Steven Fletcher penalty.
DARNELL FISHER 8
Defensively dodgy at the start but grew into the game and Sheffield Wednesday got very little change out of him.
RICHARD WOOD 9
A penalty award against him and a red card were the last things his commanding, courageous display deserved. Led the Rotherham resistance.
AYMEN BELAID 8
Why didn’t he play before Paul Warne took over? Three matches, three assured, competitive displays.
JOE MATTOCK 8
Like Wood, he was playing against his former club. Very solid and dependable. Little got past him.
ANTHONY FORDE 7
Worked as hard as anyone in a real team effort. One or two good moments but needs to threaten more when he has the ball.
TOM ADEYEMI 7
Another good performance by the midfield man starting to show his best form now he’s clear of injuries. Got among the Owls players.
LEE FRECKLINGTON 7
Frecks was Frecks. Not his best ever game, but tireless running and competing. Led by example.
JOE NEWELL 8
Easily his best dispay of the season. His direct running opened up Wednesday several times and his deliveries hit the spot too. Tremendous.
PETER ODEMWINGIE 6
Paul Warne was full of praise for him afterwards. Some quality touches here and there but didn’t make a truly consistent impact.
DANNY WARD 6
Didn’t see a lot of the ball but there were times when his pace troubled the Owls defence.
DEXTER BLACKSTOCK 5
On as a 69th-minute replacement for Peter Odemwingie but was unable to make a mark.
