Rotherham United: Player ratings from the Millers' 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers
The Star's Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the performances at the Memorial Stadium.
MAREK RODAK 6
Neither goal was his fault. Didn’t do anything wrong.
SHAUN CUMMINGS 6
Okay. Nothing great, nothing terrible.
SEMI AJAYI 7
Much better from the centre-half recalled in place of Richard Wood. Solid and made no mistakes.
MICHAEL IHIEKWE 4
Another goal-costing error and an unconvincing performance all round.
JOE MATTOCK 5
Most of Bristol Rovers’ danger, from Billy Bodin and Dan Leadbitter, came down his side.
RYAN WILLIAMS 6
Took his goal really well. Not at his absolute best but signs that he’s coming back to form.
DARREN POTTER 6
Came off with an achilles complaint after 22 minutes. His composure and comfort on the ball were missed.
LEE FRECKLINGTON 5
Not a lot was seen of the Millers skipper, although, as always, he put in a shift.
JOE NEWELL 7
Rotherham’s biggest threat. One or two mazy runs and his delivery was good throughout the match.
DAVID BALL 6
Worked hard but didn’t get on the ball enough.
KIEFFER MOORE 4
His goal tally has masked the fact he hasn’t been on top of his game for a few matches. Costly loss of discipline. His red card will hit Rotherham hard.
WILL VAULKS 6
Came on for Darren Potter. Wide of the target with his shooting.
Replaced David Ball on 85 minutes.
On for Shaun Cummings in the 85th minute.
