A few facts and figures about previous games between the Millers and the Cobblers

Rotherham United’s first away league game of the new season is against Northampton Town.


The Millers and Cobblers have met thirty-two times in the League in the past and the last time at Sixfields saw both sides go away with a point. Gareth Evans gave the Millers a great start with a goal on two minutes only for a blooper from Millers’ ‘keeper, Conrad Logan, where the ball seemed to spin out of his hands, gave the home side an own goal and a point.


The last time the Millers won at Sixfields was in October 2000 where, for seventy-five minutes of the game they played with ten men, after Guy Branston got a second yellow card on fifteen minutes. Stuart Talbot got the only goal of the game on the half-hour mark.
