Rotherham United’s next game in the Championship sees them travelling to the South West coast of Wales to take on Swansea City.

April 2019 was the last time the pair met at the Liberty Stadium which ended up being a seven goal thriller. A long throw from Will Vaulks was cleared by the hosts but only back to the Millers Welsh midfielder who sent the ball back into the box for Michael Ihiekwe to touch it past Swans’ ‘keeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt and into the net. Oli McBurnie got an equaliser on thirty-six minutes but another long throw from Vaulks two minutes later found Matt Crooks who regained the Millers lead. Swansea came out the better in the second half and five minutes in got a second equaliser after Daniel James got past the Millers defence to send the ball to Barrie McKay who headed home. On sixty-nine minutes the hosts went in front for the first time in the game thanks to a George Byers shot that appeared to go in off the arm of Kyle Naughton and ten minutes later McBurnie curled his second and the Swans fourth into the net. But the Millers put up a fight and Vaulks shot went in from the underside of the crossbar with Nordfeldt having to make a good save minutes later from Michael Smith. The Millers lost four-three and left feeling angry that the hosts’ third goal had been allowed to stand.

The time before that the Millers were at the Liberty Stadium in the league was in League One two days before Christmas in 2006 when the game ended one-all. Eugen Bopp put the Millers in front eleven minutes into the second half but on the stroke of full time Adebayo Akinfenwa got an equaliser.


The last time Rotherham beat Swansea at their home was in April 2006 when an own goal on sixteen minutes from Garry Monk and a goal fifteen minutes later from Gregor Robertson gave the Millers all points from this Easter Monday game.


The first time the teams met on Swansea soil was in the Old Division Two in December 1951 at Vetch Field. The hosts won five-nil on the day.
