Rotherham United welcome Middlesbrough for the last game of the season which will be ‘Boro’s their third league visit to the New York Stadium.

Last time the pair met in Rotherham was in March 2016. It looked like the game would be goalless when up popped Lee Frecklington with two minutes to go to score the only goal of the game for the hosts. In the final minute of the game a foul by Greg Halford on Stewart Downing saw him get a second yellow and an early walk down the tunnel.

‘Boro’s first visit to the New York Stadium was in November 2014, a game which didn’t exactly go as the Millers planned when they found themselves two goals and one player down within the first thirty minutes. Patrick Bamford and Yanic Wildschut put the visitors two up by the twenty minutes mark and not long afterwards a poor challenge from Daniel Ayala saw Alex Revell get a boot in his face and after lengthy treatment had to be helped from the pitch. On came Jordan Bowery to take his place but three minutes later he and George Friend went for the same ball with Friend falling to the floor in apparent agony. Referee Mick Russell took notice of his linesman and the Millers striker got a red card – although this was later rescinded. The hosts put up a good fight in the second half but a Lee Tomlin goal three minutes from time gave the visitors a three-nil win. Paul Green and Jonson Clarke-Harris saw yellows that day.

The teams were both in the Old Division Three the time before that when they met at Millmoor with Middlesbrough winning four-one – Rotherham’s goal being scored by Colin Douglas. Archie Stevens and Brian Laws scored two each for the visitors.

The last time the Millers beat the ‘Boro on home soil was on New Years Day 1966. Two goals from Les Chappell one from Chris Rabjohn plus an og gave the Millers a four-one victory. The Millers finished seventh in Division Two that season with ‘Boro being relegated in twenty-first place.

The first time the sides met at Millmoor was in Division Two in September 1954 when goals from Ron Burke, Gladstone Guest and Ian Wilson gave the hosts a three-nil victory in front of just over seventeen thousand fans.

The game earlier this season at The Riverside on a Tuesday night in October was goalless with the only yellow card of the evening going to Will Vaulks.
