A few facts and figures about previous games between the Millers and ‘Boro
Rotherham United make the trip to the Riverside to take on Middlesbrough for the first time since they met there in the League Cup in September 1995. That day the game was a two-one win for the hosts with Robbie Mustoe and Jan-Aage Fjortoft getting ‘Boro’s goals and Shaun Goater replying for the Millers.
The last time the pair met in the League in Middlesbrough was at Ayresome Park in March 1987 in the Old Division Three. The game ended 0-0.
The last time Rotherham won at Ayresome Park was fifty years ago in March 1965. The teams were in the Old Division Two and the Millers came away with a five-three win. Albert Bennett got a hat-trick that afternoon with the other two goals being scored by Robin Hardy and Brian Tiler. Rotherham finished that season in fourteenth place with ‘Boro finishing three places below.
The first time the sides met in Middlesbrough was in January 1955. The hosts won the game five-one with the Millers goal coming from Gladstone Guest.
The game earlier this season at the New York Stadium was a three-nil win for Middlesbrough. Patrick Bamford opened the scoring on eight minutes with Yanic Wildschut doubling their advantage eleven minutes later. Just before the half-hour mark Alex Revell received a kick in the face from Daniel Ayala and, after lengthy treatment, had to be helped from the field with Jordan Bowery replacing him. Unfortunately, the striker lasted just three minutes before he saw red for a kick on George Friend – although the card was later rescinded. Lee Tomlin got a third for ‘Boro three minutes from time.
