6 Steffen: Didn't have much to do. Rotherham scored with their only shot on target. Steffen didn’t move but appeared slightly unsighted.

5 Dijksteel: Solid enough first half but mistimed tackle that led to dismissal.

6 McNair: With Howson getting injured in the warm-up, McNair thankfully appeared to come through return unscathed.

6 Lenihan: Physical battle against Hugill. Rotherham didn’t really have a chance other than their goal.

6 Bola: Linked up well with McGree down the left.

7 Barlaser: Built on Luton display with another tidy showing. Will be disappointed to be on losing side against former club.

6 Hackney: Saw plenty of the ball but couldn’t find killer pass. Replaced on the hour mark, perhaps as precaution after first yellow card.

6 Jones: Couple of breakaways in first half but couldn’t take advantage. Big penalty claim turned down after the break.

5 Akpom: Struggled to get into the game.

7 McGree: Almost scored early on, teed up chance for Archer. Boro’s best player.

5 Archer: Fired over with one early chance from McGree cross. Other than that, was quiet.



6 Smith (for Archer, 46): Introduced after Dijksteel red card. Not really tested defensively. Blazed over with good chance.

6 Mowatt (for Hackney, 60): Busy and tidy for final half hour.

Crooks (for McGree, 80): N/A

Man of the Match: Jamie Lindsay. Busy and effective midfield display as Rotherham secured three points to guarantee survival.
