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

ROTHERHAM (4-4-2)

RICHARD O’DONNELL 5

Won’t be happy with the way Jack Marriott’s shot went by him for the opening goal.

JOSH EMMANUEL 5

Young and still prone to making rash decisions. Not the attacking threat he can be.

SEMI AJAYI 5

Did some good things, but the mistake for Peterborough’s second goal overrides everything.

MICHAEL IHIEKWE 7

Another decent game at the heart of the defence, although he and Semi Ajayi never snuffed out Jack Marriott.

JOE MATTOCK 6

Leo Da Silva Lopes got the better of him once or twice, but not often.

RYAN WILLIAMS 7

Clever, mobile attacker who will also track back. Deserves his place in the side. Good crossing and passing.

DARREN POTTER 8

So comfortable on the ball. His experience shows. Rarely wastes the ball. Can pass short and long.

LEE FRECKLINGTON 7

Took the game to Posh when Rotherham were 1-0 down and put in a great cross for the equaliser.

JOE NEWELL 7

Had the beating of his man on his return to his former club.

KIEFFER MOORE 8

Four goals in two games. Big man. Big threat. Would love to see him at Rotherham on a permanent deal.

JAMIE PROCTOR 5

Nowhere near as good as last week when he set up four goals. Didn’t keep the ball well enough.

Substitutes:

DAVID BALL

On for Jamie Proctor in the 71st minute. Busy but the ball didn’t drop for him in the area.

JON TAYLOR

Came on against his old club as a replacement for Ryan Williams after 75 minutes.

ANTHONY FORDE

Replaced Josh Emmanuel with nine minutes to go.

Subs not used: Bilboe, Vaulks, Purrington, Clarke-Harris.

Peterborough (3-4-1-2): Bond 6; Taylor 7, Baldwin 7, Tafazolli 7; Da Silva Lopes 6 (Hughes 81), Doughty 5, Grant 6, Edwards 5; Maddison 7 (Forrester 81); Morias 6 (Kanu 71), Marriott 9. Subs not used: O’Malley, Shephard, Lloyd, Borg.

Goals: Marriott 47, 75 (Peterborough); Moore 55 (Rotherham).
