A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and the Cottagers

Rotherham United take on Fulham at home this weekend which will be the Cottagers third visit to the New York Stadium.

The game in August 2015 at the New York Stadium was a win for the visitors. Former Millers favourite Ben Pringle opened the scoring for the Cottagers on seven minutes with a Ross McCormack penalty nine minutes later made it two-nil. A second half goal from Jonson Clarke-Harris halved the deficit but Cauley Woodrow made it three-nil to Fulham in the final minute of the game.

This fixture between the teams the season earlier was in October 2014 when the game saw six goals. Alex Revell gave the Millers the lead on twenty-eight minutes but the Cottagers were level a few minutes later when George Williams was tripped in the area by Lee Frecklington and Ross McCormack put the spot-kick into the net. Jonson Clarke-Harris put the Millers back in front ten minutes into the second half but Cauley Woodrow equalised three minutes later. Four minutes from time a good run from Paul Taylor found Paul Green who in turn found Ben Pringle and the midfielder’s shot towards goal hit Fulham defender Nikolay Bodurov and the ball flew past his own ‘keeper and into the net giving the hosts the lead for the third time. But the Millers fans were soon brought back down to earth when a McCormack corner found the head of Dan Burn in the last minute of the game who put the ball beyond everyone making it three-three.

The last time Rotherham beat Fulham at Millmoor was in the Old Division Three in March 1991. The game ended three-one with Peter Duffield, Shaun Goater and Shaun Goodwin scoring for the hosts in front of three thousand one hundred and eighty-eight people.

The first game at Millmoor between the sides was just after Christmas 1919 when an own goal helped the Millers get a one-one draw with the Cottagers.

The game at Craven Cottage in December saw Joe Newell put the Millers ahead on the nineteenth minute but goals from Stefan Johansen thirteen minutes later followed by another from Floyd Ayite in the second half gave the hosts all three points.
