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

Rotherham United welcome Gillingham for their third visit to the New York Stadium this weekend.

The Millers and Gills have met fifty-six times in the past with the Millers winning eighteen of those games and Gillingham twenty-three.

November 2013 was the last time the Gills made the trip to Rotherham, a game that saw five goals. Nouha Dicko gave the hosts a nine minutes lead with Kieran Agard and Ben Pringle making it three-nil going into the half-time break. Cody McDonald made it three-one on the sixty-sixth minute but ten minutes later James Tavernier scored to make it a four-one Rotherham win.

When Gillingham came to the New York they were at the top of League Two in April 2013, but it was the Millers who had most of the position and were much the better side yet two goals from former Rotherham striker Deon Burton put the visitors two-up. Jason Taylor pulled one back twenty minutes before time but the home team couldn’t get another.

The last time the Millers beat the Gills ‘at home’ was at Don Valley in August 2011. Danny Harrison opened the scoring for Rotherham on fifty-three minutes with Lewis Grabban scoring the second ten minutes later and Gareth Evans scored number three on the seventy-eighth minute.

April 2007 saw Gillingham at Millmoor when both sides were in League One. The afternoon saw five goals with Delroy Facey getting the first on just seven minutes for the Millers only for Felix Bastians and Andrew Crofts to put the Gills two-one up going into the half-time break. With fifteen minutes to go Chris O’Grady equalised and then substitute Marc Newsham scored the winner for the Millers on eighty-six minutes, making it three-two.
