A few facts of previous games between the Millers and the Robins

Rotherham United make the trip to the County Ground to take on Swindon Town on Saturday and with Sky showing the game live the kick-off is 12.15pm.

The Millers and Robins have met twenty-six times in the past and the last time the Millers won at the County Ground was in February 2006, which was the last time they met. Four goals were scored in ten minutes of the first half – Jamie Cureton putting the Robins in front on twenty minutes and Martin Butler equalising just two minutes later only for Sean O’Hanlon to score on twenty-five minutes to put the home side in front again. On the half-hour mark, Shaun Barker got on the end of a Lee Williamson free-kick to equalise again. Four minutes into the second half and Barker’s long throw-in found the head of Butler for him to put the Millers in front. After that the Millers defence did well and stood solid against a barrage of Town corners.
