Rotherham United travel to take on Cambridge United for their next away game which will be the first time they have met on Cambridge soil since September 2000. And that was a game to forget for any Millers fan despite Mark Robins putting them ahead on eight minutes. Two goals from the U’s Ian Ashbee and one from Tom Youngs sent the hosts in at half-time three-one up. Zema Abbey made it four-one seven minutes into the second-half plus another from Jonas Axeldal and a second from Youngs gave Cambridge a six-one win.

A Boxing Day game in 1998 in a League Three game saw five goals with John Taylor and Trevor Benjamin giving the hosts a two-nil lead at half-time, Alan Knill stepped up in the second half with two goals for Rotherham making it two-all. But a goal on ninety minutes from Neil Mustoe saw the Millers come away with nothing that day.

Another home win for the U’s came in August the season before with Michael Kyd scoring straight after the start of the second half. Gijsbert Bos put the visitors level five minutes later but a John Taylor eighty-second minute goal gave the hosts the win.

The last time the Millers won at Cambridge at the Abbey Stadium was in a Division Two game in September 1993 when the only goal of the game came from Imre Varadi.

The first time the pair met on Cambridge soil was in January 1975 which was a goalless draw.

Just last month saw the Millers and The U’s meet at the New York Stadium where a Ben Wiles goal and a Dan Barlaser penalty put the hosts in front going into half-time. Sam Smith halved the deficit on fifty-one minutes but a Freddie Ladapo goal ten minutes from time saw Rotherham get a three-one win.
