A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and Reading
Easter Monday sees Rotherham United make the long journey to the Madejski Stadium to take on Reading.
Last season this fixture was a Tuesday night game when a goal from Hal Robson-Kanu on sixty-six minutes was the only goal of the game giving the hosts all three points. Richard Wood, Greg Halford, Grant Ward, Richie Smallwood and Jonson Clarke-Harris saw yellow for the Millers that day alongside Michael Hector for the Royals.
The season before at the Madejski, in November 2014, was a three-nil win for the hosts. Jamie Mackie scored just before half-hour mark and second half goals from Simon Cox on fifty-five and sixty-four minutes gave the Royals all three points.
The time before that was over twelve years ago in August 2004 when a penalty on the stroke of half-time from Dave Kitson, after Shaun Barker bundled Nicky Forster over in the area, was the only goal of the game.

The game at the New York Stadium earlier this season was a one-nil win for Reading with Paul McShane scoring four minutes from time.
