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