Rotherham United make their second long journey of the week when they travel to Carrow Road for their next away fixture where they will take on Norwich City.

The last time the Millers were at Carrow Road was in December 2018 when Richie Towell gave the visitors the lead on eleven minutes. Unfortunately for Rotherham second half goals from Tod Cantwell, Max Aarons and Teemu Pukki gave Norwich all three points and back into top place in the Championship.

October 2015 saw Wes Hoolahan put the hosts in front on seventeen minutes with Cameron Jerome doubling the lead twenty minutes into the second half. Dexter Blackstock brought Rotherham back into the game with a goal on the seventy-fourth minute but a minute from time Steven Naismith made it three-one to Norwich.

The time before that at Carrow Road was in October 2014 when the game ended one-one. A Paul Green penalty, after goalkeeper John Ruddy sent Matt Derbyshire sprawling in the box, gave the Millers the lead on the stroke of half-time. Cameron Jerome scored the equaliser on seventy-seven minutes.

The last time the Millers won at Carrow Road was in April 1966 when both teams were in the Old Division Two. Frank Casper scored both goals for the visitors.

The teams first met at Carrow Road on Bonfire Night in 1960 when a goal for the Millers for Brian Sawyer couldn’t stop the Canaries winning three-one.

The game at the New York Stadium earlier this season was a two-one win for the visitors. A three minute goal from Freddie Ladapo was cancelled out by an own goal from Michael Ihiekwe and a Jordan Hughill penalty in the second half with the Millers going down to ten men when Angus MacDonald saw red with twenty minutes to go.

  • I’m sure I went up to Rotherham in the late 70’s / 80’s for the first game of the season. Keith Bertschin scored to put us one up, then we had a goal disallowed, and then we lost 4 – 1 ?

    • You know what, Timothy Mark Sell, you are absolutely right! I don’t actually know the details but there was a four-one Millers win in 1981 in the old Division Two – the game at Norwich that season was a two-nil win for the home side. I shall amend my details. Thank you!
