A few (and it is a few!) facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and Boro’
Rotherham United take on Stevenage this weekend for what will be the fourth league meeting between the two.
The first time the two met at Rotherham’s ‘home’ was when the Millers were at Don Valley Stadium in October 2010. Nicky Law put the Millers ahead on the stroke of half-time which was against run of play. The second half was a scrappy affair although Nick Fenton thought he had doubled the Millers lead but the referee ruled out the header, though no-one quite knew why. With eight minutes to go John Mousinho got an equaliser for the Boro and Chris Holroyd thought he’d won the game for the visitor in the dying seconds of the game but the flag had gone up for off-side.
The Millers have won an FA Cup game against the Boro at the New York Stadium in November 2012 by three goals to two. Mark Bradley and Lee Frecklington (2) put the Millers three up but James Dunne and Filip Morais made it hairy for the Millers when they pulled two back for the visitors.
The game at Broadhall Way earlier this season was a three-nil win for the Millers with Ben Pringle, Claude Davis and Michael O’Connor scoring the visitors goals.
