The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the performances at Molineux.

ROTHERHAM (4-4-1-1)

LEWIS PRICE 7

Solid show capped by a fine penalty save, diving to his left to deny Helder Costa.

WILL VAULKS 7

For my money, now Rotherham’s first-choice right-back. Has found his best role after being signed as a midfielder.

SEMI AJAYI 5

The centre-half’s first suspect performance since his January loan arrival. Shocking miss at the end.

AIMEN BELAID 6

Better stuff after a couple of dodgy displays.

JOE MATTOCK 7

Good, apart from giving away a penalty - although Costa looked as much to blame as the left-back as they both tumbled.

ANTHONY FORDE 6

Started brightly against his former club, but faded in the second half.

RICHIE SMALLWOOD 6

Battled hard and made sure none of the Wolves midfield had an easy game.

LEE FRECKLINGTON 6

Performed a similar role to Smallwood as he improves his match fitness after a long spell out.

JOE NEWELL 4

The left winger seems to have a run of good games, then a run of bad ones. Little impact at Molineux.

TOM ADEYEMI 6

Two great passes to put striker Danny Ward clean through.

DANNY WARD 5

Ward had the beating of the Wolves centre-halves but messed up badly when he twice should have finished one-on-ones.

SUBSTITUTES

JERRY YATES 6

A 57th-minute replacement for Smallwood as the Millers went 4-4-2 in the hunt for an equaliser.

JON TAYLOR 7

Really lively after coming on after 57 minutes for Newell and should start next week against QPR.

ALEX BRAY

On in the 83rd minute for Forde and no real chance to impress.

Subs not used: Bilboe, Purrington, Dawson, Warren.
