The Star's Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the players' performances in the 2-2 home draw against Bristol City.

Rotherham (4-4-1-1)

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.

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.

Subs used

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.

Scott Allan

An 81st-minute substitute for Brown, he didn’t have the opportunity to make his attacking talent count.
