Romain Vincelot scored the only goal of the game as Bradford City took the honours against Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United in League One.

Football writer Leon Wobschall was at Valley Parade and analysed each player's performance.

Colin Doyle. Overcame some dodgy early moments to re-compose himself and did his bit to claim a welcome clean sight. 7

Tony McMahon. Supplied the centre for the all-important goal. A savvy, experienced performance. 7

Nathaniel Knight-Percival. An assured afternoon. Kept dangerman Moore quiet and was authoritative all game. 8

Matt Kilgallon. A quite brilliant clearance to deny the Millers a certain goal in the first half. Continued his fine season so far. 8

Adam Chicksen. Produced some dangerous moments down the left and was tenacious at the break on his return. 7

Alex Gilliead. Showed some nifty footwork at times, although his final option was not always the best. 7

Romain Vincelot. Got the key goal and continued his purple patch in front of goal. 7

Jake Reeves. Got through plenty of work, but with the ball at his feet, it didn't always come off. 6

Nicky Law. A stumble ensured that he couldn't fire home in the second half against his former club. Steady away and kept involved. 7

Dominic Poleon. Spurned a good first half opportunity and has had better days. 5

Charlie Wyke. Not many sights of goal, but stood up well physically and competed well. 6

Substitutes: Patrick (Poleon 62), 6, Thompson (Law 81), 6.

Not used: Raeder, P Taylor, McCartan, Hendrie, Jones.
