Rotherham United succumbed to a single goal defeat in the Yorkshire derby at Bradford City in League One.

Football writer Leon Wobschall was at Valley Parade and judged the performances.

Marek Rodak. A couple of decent saves on the day and was powerless to prevent City's goal. 7

Will Vaulks. Some dangerous crosses and typically committed. Plenty of energy. 7

Michael Ihiekwe. Had a rare chance on goal in the first half, although he and wouldn't have been happy with City's goal. 6

Richard Wood. Typically competitive and picked up a booking for a first-half foul on Poleon. 6

Joe Mattock. Dismissed late on for a second booking following a challenge on Gilliead. 5

Darren Potter. Kept the Millers ticking off and was tidy in possession and had another good afternoon. 7

Ryan Williams. Lively for a spell in the second half and provided a great ball for a good first-half chance for Taylor. But a little bit hit and miss at times. 6

Lee Frecklington. A few sights of goal in the second half, but couldn't emulate his highs from midweek. 7

Richie Towell. Stung the palms of Doyle with a couple of effort on goal in second half. 6

Jon Taylor. Involved a fair bit in the first half, less so in the second. Couldn't follow up his two-goal show against Walsall. 6

Kieffer Moore. Found the Bradford defence a tougher nut to crack than several others this term. 6

Subs: Newell (Williams 62), 6, Clarke-Harris (Towell 80), 6.
