Rotherham United make the short journey to the Keepmoat Stadium for this South Yorkshire derby with Doncaster Rovers.

The pair last met on Doncaster soil in November 2017 when it looked like a Richard Wood own goal was going to give the hosts the win but with Rovers substitutes taking their time going off plus a few home players getting late ‘injuries’ the referee added a lot of injury time on which saw Kieffer Moore get a point for the Millers on the ninety-sixth minute of the game.

The only time the pair have met at The Keepmoat for a league game before this was in January 2007 in League One. Richie Partridge gave the visitors the lead on ten minutes but two minutes later Paul Heffernan equalised. Two minutes into the second half Graeme Lee put Rovers in front with Heffernan getting his second and the hosts third just before the hour mark. A goal on seventy-one minutes from Martin Woods made it three-two which is how the game ended.

The last time the Millers beat Rovers on Doncaster soil was a cold Friday evening back in December 1997 at Belle Vue. An own goal by Ian Gore gave the visitors a half-time lead with further goals coming in the second half from Lee Glover and Scott Taylor.

There have been a few goals scored between the teams in the past but the biggest margin that Rotherham won at Belle Vue was in February 1955. Jack Grainger scored twice and goals from Gladstone Guest and youngster Anthony Reeson saw the Millers get a four-nil victory.

And the first time out at Belle Vue saw loanee John Pearson from Leeds get the only goal of the game for Rotherham County.

The Millers and Rovers have met at The Keepmoat in a pre-season friendly in August 2014. The Millers won two-one with Matt Derbyshire and Ryan Hall scoring. Curtis Main got a consolation for the home side. The Millers also saw two goals chalked off for off-side, one in each half.

  • Was at the game in Nov 17, it was keiffer Moore who equalised for the millers not micheal Smith, will be at the match this Saturday and will even give you a score prediction, donny 1 millers 3 ????

  • Any body else got any view Saint Paul Warne climbing into the pulpit and delivering a sermon on how the Rotherham united supporters should conduct themselves at Doncaster on Saturday and not to abuse former player little Jon Taylor, how insulting and arrogant of Saint Paul Warne to even feel he needed to speak of this matter, he is much better in need of sorting is own team out after below par games against Lincoln & tranmere, in other words said Paul of new york make a statement that’s relevant.

    • I wouldn’t dream of booing a former player, Stuart – well 99% of them, as there is always the one exception.
