The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the performances at New York Stadium.
LEWIS PRICE 8
Superb saves to foil Conor Washington and Tjarron Chery (twice). The biggest compliment I can pay him is Lee Camp wasn’t missed.
DARNELL FISHER 7
Hia best game since Norwich City away in October. Looked sharp and was simpler and more solid in his defending.
RICHARD WOOD 8
Did what Richard Wood does and did it well. A proper defender.
AIMEN BELAID 8
Totally justified his first call-up in 11 months. Composed, competitive and assured.
JOE MATTOCK 7
Decent, unfussy display.
ANTHONY FORDE 6
Tried to take the game to QPR and worked really hard out of possession.
TOM ADEYEMI 8
His best display in a Millers shirt. Constantly pressing, winning possession and breaking up QPR attacks.
LEE FRECKLINGTON 8
The legend grows. Hadn’t played for five matches yet ran more than anyone. His desire to go the extra yard is what Rotherham are all about.
JOE NEWELL 7
He won’t live down that miss, but his running caused problems and some of his deliveries were real quality.
IZZY BROWN 8
This was the Izzy Brown we love. Dangerous every time he had the ball, scored and he put in a shift as well.
DANNY WARD 8
His pace, mobility and aerial abilility were too much for QPR. Led their defence a merry dance.
On in the 85th minute for Adeyemi.
An 85th-minute replacement for Izzy Brown. His pace caused problems but fluffed a great chance to set up Danny Ward.
On in time added on for Joe Newell and won two important headers.
