Aston Villa 3 Rotherham 0: The player ratings

Rotherham were blown away by Aston Villa on Saturday as they went down to a 3-0 defeat.

It was a disappointing afternoon for the Millers, with boss Alan Stubbs still waiting for a first win in charge.

Here’s how the players rated with the chance to add your own.

Lee Camp 7 – Another solid afternoon of shot-stopping for Camp, who made a string of saves, none better than his first half stop to deny Aly Cissokho.

Stephen Kelly 5 – Restored at right-back and handed the armband, Kelly again struggled with Villa’s dynamism.

Dominic Ball 6 – Did not let anyone down on his debut, but was thrown in at the deep end. Showed glimpses that he could become an important player.

Richard Wood 5 – Another difficult afternoon for Wood, who is struggling with Stubbs’ new style. At fault for the first two goals.

Joe Mattock 5 – Back in the side after an injury, the usually reliable Mattock endured his toughest day in a Millers shirt. Replaced in the second half to take him out of the firing.

Will Vaulks 5 – Struggled to reach the highs of his debut performance, the midfielder had little affect on the game.

Richie Smallwood 6 – Still has an important role to play in the side, but could do little to stop a rampant Villa.

Anthony Forde 5 – Still flattering to deceive, Forde gets in good positions but is not making the best of them yet.

Jake Forster-Caskey 5 – Another afternoon of neat touches and flicks, but we’re still waiting to see anything of real substance from the Brighton loanee.

Jon Taylor 6 – Still looking Rotherham’s biggest threat, but as with others around him we are yet to see an end product  from the record-signing’s industry.

Danny Ward 6 – Needed the striker to have one of his on-fire afternoons, but Ward struggled to have a meaningful impact on the game.

Jerry Yates 5 – Thrown on as Rotherham chased the game, but was up against two top class centre-halves.

Darnell Fisher 6 – Made his debut as a second-half substitute and produced some impressive moments in defence. Should become a regular.
