Should Rotherham United be travelling on Boxing Day they will be making the journey up to the Riverside Stadium for their next game in the Championship to take on Middlesbrough.
The last time the pair met at ‘Boro’s ground was in October 2018 when the Millers travelled to the team at the top of the Championship. Ryan Williams brought off a good save from Darren Randolph with the hosts piling on the pressure a bit and Rotherham soaking it up. The second half was much the same although the Millers put in many crosses and hit the post on occasions but in the end gained their first away point of the season.
November 2015 was the last time the pair met in Middlesbrough which saw Stewart Downing, who was making his four hundredth league appearance of his career, strike the only goal of the game just after the quarter of an hour mark. The only yellow of the game went to the Millers’ Tom Thorpe.
The teams met at the Riverside almost seven months before that when goals from Lee Tomlin and Patrick Bamford in the second half gave the hosts all three points. Kari Arnason and Lee Frecklington saw yellow cards that day.
The last time Rotherham beat Middlesbrough on home soil was at Ayresome Park was in March 1965. The teams were in the Old Division Two and the Millers came away with a five-three win. Albert Bennett got a hat-trick that afternoon with the other two goals being scored by Robin Hardy and Brian Tiler. Rotherham finished that season in fourteenth place with ‘Boro finishing three places below.
The first time the sides met in Middlesbrough was in January 1955. The hosts won the game five-one with the Millers goal coming from Gladstone Guest.
