When a performance is THAT good, how can you single out just one player?
On Saturday, Rotherham United swept aside on the league’s form sides with some superb displays right across the pitch.
Hakeem Odoffin – who opened the scoring with a thunderbolt after just 30 seconds – was seemingly everywhere breaking up play. Ollie Rathbone, was his usual relentless self and got his name on the scoresheet with a similarly powerful strike from range.
Debutants Sean Morrison and Leo Hjelde fitted into the side seamlessly. Shane Ferguson and Conor Washington both capped off industrious displays with goals, Viktor Johansson made big saves at vital times between the sticks. Chiedozie Ogbene caused havoc on the right flank, whilst Lee Peltier was formidable on the same side. Cameron Humphreys and Dan Barlaser were clam and precise in the centre of the defence and midfield respectively.
Manager Matt Taylor sprung a tactical surprise, switching to a back four for the first time this campaign, setting traps for promotion-chasing Blackburn Rovers all over the pitch with a high-pressing 4-3-3 setup.
And let’s not forget about the substitutions, who played their part and continued in the same vein as the ones they replaced, with the Millers again scoring in added time.
It really was a team performance at AESSEAL New York Stadium and the 4-0 scoreline did not flatter the resurgent Millers.
Having been so good across the pitch, and after a couple of weeks of only nominating a couple players, it seemed fitting that the Mattress Online Man of the Match was awarded to every single one of them, after such a stunning victory.
