A few facts and figures about previous meetings between the Millers and the Magpies

Rotherham United and Notts County have met forty-nine times in the past – two of those times being in the FA Cup.

The first time was in October 1885 when the Millers were actually known as Rotherham Club. Although drawn to play at home, ‘home advantage’ was sold for £30 and the game was played at Notts County’s ground – with Rotherham being on the end of a 15-0 defeat.

The Millers and the Magpies last met in the FA Cup in the first round of the 1969/70 season. The game took place at Meadow Lane in front of eight thousand seven hundred fans and the Millers came away three-nil winners thanks to two goals from Steve Downes and one from Neil Hague.

The last time the two met in Rotherham was at Millmoor in September 2007 in League Two. Peter Holmes put the Millers in front on seven minutes but Spencer Weir-Daley equalised thirty minutes later to give both sides a point.
