Rotherham (4-2-3-1)

Lee Camp 8

Saved two penalties and made other stops, including a stunning one to keep out an Alex Pearce first-half header. Derby fans might not love him but Millers followers do.

Darnell Fisher 4

Conceded the first penalty and suffered a nightmare first half when he could barely put a foot right.

Greg Halford 5

One goalsaving block on a Bradley Johnson shot, but otherwise not the commanding figure Rotherham need at the back.

Richard Wood 6

As ever, shirked nothing and gave his all. Plays with character and heart. Some others could learn from him.

Joe Mattock 5

Given a difficult afternoon by Tom Ince. A lot of Derby’s play was down his flank.

Tom Adeyemi 5

A physical presence in midfield. Needs a run of games after injury to get fully up to speed.

Jake Forster-Caskey 5

The usual question after a J F-C performance. How did he really affect the game?

Jon Taylor 5

Possibly his least effective display in a Millers shirt. Too many League One decisions and his touch was heavy.

Joe Newell 6

Moments of danger in a central role where his deft touch and ability to find space showed up well at times.

Peter Odemwingie 6

Undoubted class. Didn’t see enough of the ball in attacking areas. Will have benefited from a full game.

Danny Ward 6

Didn’t get enough service. Looked more dangerous when Izzy Brown came on.


Izzy Brown 7

Got involved after replacing Jon Taylor on 61 minutes and broke forward well.

Will Vaulks 6

A 61st-minute substitute for Jake Forster-Caskey. Competed.

Subs not used: Price, Kelly, Fry, Belaid, Yates.

Derby (4-3-3): Carson 6; Baird 6, Keogh 6, Pearce 6, Lowe 6; Johnson 7 (Bryson 82), Butterfield 7, Hughes 7; Ince 8, Russell 6 (Weimann 61, 6), Bent 7 (Vydra 69, 6): Subs not used: Mitchell, Shackell, Anya, Hanson.
