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

Rotherham United go to Glanford Park on Saturday for the first time in the League for almost eleven years.

That game in February 2007 was a win for the hosts with a seventeenth minute Jermaine Beckford goal being the only goal of the game. Ian Sharps and Richie Partridge saw yellow that afternoon.

A Division Three game between the pair in 1998 saw seven goals. Russ Wilcox put the hosts in front on twelve minutes with John Eyre doubling their lead from the penalty spot twenty-one minutes later. An own goal from Alan Knill and another gaol from Richard Logan gave the Iron a four-nil lead before the sixty minute mark was up. But the Millers came back and when Darren Garner and Paul Hurst made it four-two the Millers fans were shouting for any Rotherham player with the ball to shoot Garner made it four-three in the final minute of the game. The only booking of the game was to Millers substitute Andy Monkhouse.

The last time Rotherham won away at Scunthorpe was in October 1983 in an Old Division Three game at the Old Showground. The game ended two-one to the Millers with Mick Gooding scoring both goals.

In a Division Four game nine years earlier Trevor Swift, Ron Wigg and Trevor Womble gave the visitors a three-nil win.

The pair have met at Glanford Park since 2007 in the Football League Trophy which was a two-nil win for the Iron in January 2009.

The game earlier this season at the New York Stadium was a two-nil win for Rotherham with goals from Will Vaulks and Kieffer Moore.

In the thirty-five league games between the sides Rotherham have won thirteen to Scunthorpe’s twelve.
