Huddersfield 2 Rotherham 0: Player Ratings

Rotherham's Sky Bet Championship revival is well and truly over after they slipped to a third straight loss by going down 2-0 at fellow strugglers Huddersfield.

It was a damaging loss, with few positives, and they will now spend Christmas in the bottom four.


It was a bad day at the office for most of the players. Here's how the players rated at John Smith's Stadium.

Lee Camp 5 - Apart from the two goals he had little to do in terms of saves. With Mustapha Carayol's strike he was made to look foolish by a swerving ball going down the centre of the goal while he came out second best in the one-on-one which allowed Ishmael Miller to score the second.

Lewis Buxton 5 - A disappointing display for the right-back who struggled to cope with the pace of Carayol, Ben Chilwell and others. Struggled to get up and down in support when the Millers did attack.

Kirk Broadfoot 7 - Another solid performance from Broadfoot, who has fast become Rotherham's most dependable defender. Was more comfortable against Miller than Nahki Wells but did little wrong.

Danny Collins 5 - Was having a solid enough game until he got caught out for the second goal. In trying to get in front of Miller, the Huddersfield defender turned him and raced through to score.

Joe Mattock 6 - Another dependable performance from Mattock, who is proving to be assured left-back at this level without really ever excelling. 

Grant Ward 5 - Was totally anonymous in the first half, but he was the heartbeat of the 10 to 15-minute spell the Millers had in the second half. He's played better recently.

Richie Smallwood 6 - Did what he does well every game, got around the pitch, broke play up, won tackles and tried to distribute the ball. Was replaced for a more attacking option late on.

Lee Frecklington 5 - His poorest game back since overcoming an injury, the skipper was off the pace and made little impact as an attacking midfielder. His touch was also off, leaving him often short of time on the ball.

Joe Newell 5 - Ineffective throughout. He is more influential in a central role, but could never be played there. Poor deliveries into the box and missed the Millers' golden chance in the second half.

Danny Ward 5 - Did little to show the Huddersfield support what they are missing out on. A lack of sharpness prevented him from getting in on goal in the first half and did not contribute too much when moved out to the left.

Jonson Clarke-Harris 4 - That two-goal performance against Bristol City seems an age ago, but even that disguised that the youngster is simply not ready to lead the line at this level. We'll leave it at that.


Luke Hyam 3 - Didn't do anything.

Matt Derbyshire 3 - Did nothing of note.
