The Star’s Millers man, Paul Davis, assesses the performances in the 3-2 victory at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
MAREK RODAK 6
Had little to do on his debut. Looked generally assured.
SHAUN CUMMINGS 6
Doing okay until a tight hamstring ended his afternoon after 40 minutes. Touch and go for Tuesday’s Walsall match.
MICHAEL IHIEKWE 7
Another accomplished performance, although Bury substitute Michael Smith gave him a tough time in the air.
RICHARD WOOD 7
No-nonsense commitment. You always know what you’re going to get from him.
BEN PURRINGTON 6
Better without the ball than with it. Rarely beaten one on one but needs more confidence in possession.
DARREN POTTER 8
What a signing. Brings composure and intelligence to the midfield and is a strong physical presence. Class.
RYAN WILLIAMS 7
A potent attacking threat. Quick, lively, good feet, sees a pass and has the ability to go past people.
WILL VAULKS 8
Impressive at Portsmouth last week and very good again here, in midfield and then at right-back. Great ball for the opening goal.
LEE FRECKLINGTON 6
A bit more spark from the skipper after a couple of quiet games.
JON TAYLOR 6
Missed a sitter, set up the second goal. Frustrates at times but you wouldn’t want to play against him.
KIEFFER MOORE 9
Six games, six goals, 6ft 5in tall. Two more against Bury. League One defences can’t handle him so far.
RICHIE TOWELL 7
What a late strike to win the match! Very promising home debut after coming on for Shaun Cummings.
Replaced Ryan Williams on 75 minutes.
85th-minute replacement for Lee Frecklington and had a hand in the winner.
