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

Rotherham (4-1-4-1)

LEWIS PRICE 6

There were a couple of times he might have come to claim a ball and didn’t, but was there to deny Steven Naismith at the end.

DARNELL FISHER 7

Decent, steady showing. Norwich didn’t threaten too much down the Millers’ right flank.

KIRK BROADFOOT 7

Looking sharper on his third successive start after injury and his battling qualities are never in doubt.

RICHARD WOOD 7

Cameron Jerome was a handful when he came on but, like Broadfoot, Wood stuck to his task.

JOE MATTOCK 7

Wes Hoolahan caused trouble on the right for Norwich, but Mattock wasn’t found wanting and delivered a superb cross for Tom Adeyemi’s winner.

RICHIE SMALLWOOD 9

Immense in a defensive midfield role. Spotted danger, stopped danger. Won the ball, looked after the ball.

ANTHONY FORDE 7

A really hard worker and was more of a threat on the ball than he has been in recent games.

WILL VAULKS 8

A big performance from a 100-per-cent competitor. Can play a bit when he is given time. Great ball to set up the first goal.

TOM ADEYEMI 8

Right at the top of his game. A physical presence with excellent running power. Gets beyond the ball. Good header to win the match.

JOE NEWELL 6

Ironic that Rotherham’s best performer of late should be the one to shine least on a great Millers day.

JERRY YATES 9

Scored and his tireless running was too much at times for Norwich’s vaunted centre-half duo. Lost his grandad the day before the game. Our thoughts are with you, Jerry.
