A few facts and figures of previous meetings between the Millers and Wigan

Rotherham United welcome Wigan Athletic to the New York Stadium which will be the twenty-fifth league meeting between the sides.

Last season at the New York Stadium two goals from Jermaine Pennant in five first-half minutes saw the visitors two-up in thirty-six minutes. Matt Derbyshire pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time but Wigan managed to hold onto their lead to get all three points. Kirk Broadfoot of the Millers and Wigan’s James McClean were booked on the day.

The first time the teams met in Rotherham was at Millmoor in May 1984 which was a four-one win for the Millers with two goals from Tony Simmons and one each from Alan Birch and John Dungworth which was in the Old Division Three league.

The last time the two met at Millmoor was in the Championship in January 2005. A goal on seventy minutes from Gary Teale gave the visitors the lead with a Jason Roberts goal on the stroke of full-time doubling the score and giving all three points to Wigan.

And the last time Rotherham beat Wigan at Millmoor was in the Old Division Three in September 1990. The score was 5-1 with Stewart Evans getting two of the goals that afternoon and Des Hazel and Clive Mendonca also scoring plus an own goal.
