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

Rotherham United are at home on Saturday when Torquay make the long journey to the New York Stadium.

The Millers and the Gulls have met twenty-six times previously in the league with the Millers winning thirteen of those games to the Gulls’ seven.

The last time that Torquay were on Rotherham soil was at Millmoor on a cold November night back in 1999. A Trevor Berry goal on twenty-seven minutes was enough to give the Millers the win.

The last time Torquay beat Rotherham in Rotherham was in December 1997 when a Paul Gibbs penalty on fifty-nine minutes gave the visitors the win.

Last season Torquay beat the Millers at Don Valley. Lee Mansell scored the only goal of the game on twenty-six minutes although the Millers actually played a good game with Alex Revell hitting the post and Jason Taylor putting just over the bar. There was 2,538 people at Don Valley that evening and I’m sure there will be a few more than that at New York on Saturday.
