Michael Ihiekwe celebrates his goal for Rotherham United at Sunderland. Picture: Bruce Rollinson.

Ihiekwe: Got the glory with the breakthrough goal. Unfortunately went from hero to villain. Cruel. 7

Harding: An unsung hero for the Millers and gave everything as everyone in a visiting jersey did. 7

Rathbone: Carried on from where he left off on Saturday. Absolutely everywhere. Booked. 8

Barlaser: A controlling influence and he and Rathbone ran it. Set up Ihiekwe's goal. 8

Wiles: Popped in some dangerous positions and Sunderland did not look after him at all. Had two good first-half opportunities which he spurned. 7

Osei-Tutu: Big onus on him defensively. Stood up after being targeted early and his pace and direct proved a real problem for the hosts going forward. Excellent. 8

Ogbene: Looked in the mood on the big pitch and posed problems for Sunderland's defence with his energy and trickery. 8

Smith: Won most things in the air and ran a marathon. Missed a big chance before leveller. 7

Substitutes: Mattock (Osei-Tutu 76), 6; Lindsay (Rathbone 80), 6.
