Millers v MK Dons Player Ratings

Last updated : 09 February 2008 By Millersmad Staff
Andy Warrington 8

Back to his solid best showing good commandment of his area and pulled off two superb saves including a miraculous match changing stop off Kevin Gallen from two yards with the match at 1-0.

Marc Joseph 7

Resored to his usual right back spot and had a safe game. Distribution remains an issue and despite allowing the dangerous winger in behind him several times, Joseph defended fairly well.

Ian Sharps 7

Dealt with the threat of Gallen and then Johnson well, his use of the ball wasn't great today but he put in another strong performance.

Graham Coughlan 7

Once again put in a great shift as he rallied the troops after Brogan's horror injury. Headed well, covered when required a good captain's innings by Coughlan today.

Adrian Pettigrew 5

Having had to wait a couple of weeks for his debut, the Chelsea youngster did not have a debut to remember in a Rotherham shirt. Looking unsteady on the ball and continually getting done for pace by Lloyd Dyer, Pettigrew will have to tighten up if he is to get a run in Brogan's absence.

Dale Tonge 5

With manager Mark Robins listening to the calls of some fans to revert to a 4-4-2, Tonge got a run out on the right hand side of midfield and struggled. His use of the ball was poor, he did not create any space for himself and was generally off the pace. Subbed.

Pablo Mills 5

More evidence that Mills is going off the boil as the ex-Derby man had another game to forget. He is continually going for the long ball option resulting in lost possesion and gave away far too many free kicks. Booked.

Danny Harrison 6

Until his wonder strike on 82 minutes Harrison was a complete passer by for the entire match struggling to make any impact on the game. However, he superbly finished off a good Millers move to get the leveller and could have won it late on.

Stephan Brogan 6

Playing in an advanced role on the left, Brogan looked Rotherham's most potent attacking outlet throughout his time on the pitch and should have done better with a chance in the first half.

Victim of a terrible injury on 55 minutes that looks set to check this promising youngster's career.

Derek Holmes 5

Not a good day for Rotherham's top scorer having little impact on the match. Despite winning some headers, they went to no one and his definite lack of mobility once again rendered him pretty ineffective.

Chris O'Grady 5

Restricted to just the one shot this week and it was one of his better ones of late, forcing a great save from Guerret. His hold up play was poor and often found himself second to the ball when he shouldn't have been. Time for a rest?

Peter Holmes 7

Handed the unenviable task of replacing Brogan, Holmes had a lively time of it on the left wing and was nvolved in much of Rotherham's good stuff. Once again the final ball seems to let him down but played a vital part in the goal.

Jamie Yates 6

Sent on to the right wing Yates didn't get much change out of Lewington. His pace will always be a threat but at the minute he is too raw to be making any impact.

Ryan Taylor 7

The game changed when Taylor came on. Rotherham finally had a forward player who was willing to run forward with the ball and his skill and quick feet gave a solid MK Dons defence something different to contend with. His lay off supplied Harrison and Taylor may be confident of a starting place on Tuesday.
