Middlesbrough, Doncaster Rovers and Sheffield United the busiest Yorkshire clubs...

Ollie Younger – donning a bandage, he headed the ball with relish as centre-backs always seem to in that situation 6

Joe Olowu – looked unlucky to concede a penalty on a difficult night for him 5

Charlie Seaman – a header off the line was the highlight of a good performance by the wing-back 7

Matt Smith – unable to impose himself 6

Adam Clayton – making his first professional start in a year was a tough ask against a team of Rotherham's energy and he only lasted 45 minutes 5

Mipo Odubeko – another with little to work with 6
