HERE are the Rotherham United player ratings from Saturday afternoon's Championship game against Blackburn Rovers at the AESSEAL New York Stadium

Rotherham United winger Chiedozie Ogbene gets away from Blackburn's Joe Rothwell at the AESSEAL New York Stadium. Picture: Simon Hulme.

Blackman: Excellent save to deny Armstrong in the first half and also produced a top-drawer reaction save to thwart Johnson in the second period and a big one at the end to keep out Armstrong. 8

Ihiekwe: Some dodgy moments early on and Blackburn's movement up top was good. 6

Wood: Committed and won his fair share of headers as usual. He and his fellow defenders were troubled by Armstrong on the deck. Drew the foul which led to the late leveller. 6

A MacDonald: Terrible error for Rovers' opener and later went off injured. Fraught contribution. 4

Ogbene: Showed one or two flashes, but far from the heights of Oakwell seven days earlier. Spurned a chance in the air and went very close to a second-half leveller with a low shot. 6

Lindsay: Him and his midfield colleagues were second best in the first half. Were more at it in the second half. 6

S MacDonald: Excellent first half challenge to deny Armstrong, but it was the visitors who had the poise in the engine room. Replaced by Wiles at the break. 5

Wing: Could not dictate on a big afternoon for the Millers - but had a gift in his locker, courtesy of a sweet late free-kick. 7

Giles: Looked as dangerous as anyone in a home shirt in the first half and was a decent outlet on the left. 7

Smith: Grafted as per, but little guile and threat. 5

Ladapo: Did not get too much from Rovers' defence in truth. Went close at the far post in the second half, but could not make up for his howler at Oakwell last weekend. 6

Substitutes: Harding (A MacDonald 36). Solid enough and did well. 7

Wiles (S MacDonald 45). Did pep up the Millers a bit. 7

Hirst (Smith 68). Involved a fair bit and went close a couple of times. Pushed his case for a start. 7

Barlaser (Lindsay 69). Brought onto try and unlock the door. Wing prised it open. 6

Jozefzoon (Ogbene 69). Direct and posed issues when he came on. 6

Not used: Vickers, Mattock, Sadlier, Olosunde.
