Rotherham United 0 Millwall 1 - player ratings

Rotherham United were on the end of a smash-and-grab from Millwall.

IMPRESSIVE: Wes Harding (left) caught the eye for Roterham United

The Millers played since excellent football in the first 45 minutes in particular but failed to take their chances. Millwall hung in there and took advantage of some sloppy defensively play at the start of the first half to snatch a 1-0 win.

Jed Wallace's goal apart there were lots of good moments from Rotherham but they failed to make them count. Here is how their players rated.
