Rotherham 2 Wolves 2: The player ratings

Rotherham opened their 2016-17 campaign with a 2-2 draw with Wolves.

Danny Ward and Will Vaulks scored the goals in Alan Stubbs’ first game in charge of the Millers, but they could not hold on against 10 men.

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

Lee Camp 6 – Had little to do, but his handling was assured when called upon. His superb distribution led to Dominic Iorfa’s dismissal.

Stephen Kelly 6 – Started the game at right-back but ended it at left-back, Kelly had a mixed afternoon as moments of promise in attack were joined by hairy moments at the back.

Kirk Broadfoot 5 – The king of last season endured a tough opening to the new campaign. Possibly struggling with an injury, Broadfoot was at fault for the first goal and was exposed regularly.

Richard Wood 6 – More solid than his central partner, but his lack of pace remains a concern.

Joe Mattock 6 – Went off injured with a knee problem, but prior to that it was a typical Mattock performance of solidity He was, however, caught out for Wolves’ equaliser.

Will Vaulks 8 – The star of the show for the Millers, Vaulks showed off his range of passing, his tackling ability and his shooting prowess. And we know he can backflip too!

Lee Frecklington 6 – Frecklington put his usual shift in but did not affect proceedings too much. Left the field early with a calf injury.

Jake Forster-Caskey 7 – Neat in possession and comfortable with the ball, but Forster-Caskey didn’t have a massive say in the game.

Jon Taylor 7 – A debut of hope for the Millers’ record buy, who showcased his pace, trickiness and directness. He will be a key player as the season wears on/

Anthony Forde 7 – His performance mirrored that of his team’s as he was very strong in the opening half, but petered out as the game went on.

Danny Ward 7 – Again leading the line on his own, Ward scored the Millers’ first goal of the campaign and worked tirelessly.

Richie Smallwood 6 – Came off the bench for Frecklington, but did not have too much of a say.

Tom Thorpe 6 – Made his first appearance in a red and white shirt since November and let no one down at right-back.

Scott Allan 6 – A late introduction, he showed glimpses but made no real impact.
