The man in charge of our game at Molineux on Saturday will be . . . .
Jeremy Simpson from Lancashire
Jeremy is like an ‘old friend` to the Millers as this will be his third time in charge of Rotherham this season.
Last time was our away game at the Cardiff City Stadium in January with both sides getting a point each. Anthony Pilkington opened the scoring for Cardiff on twenty-five minutes with Joe Newell equalising just before half-time. Pilkington then kindly put the Millers in front with an own goal on forty-nine minutes and scored his ‘hat-trick` equalising for his own side on the hour mark. A two-footed challenge on Jonson Clarke-Harris saw Lee Peltier get an early bath after a second yellow card six minutes from time.
Jeremy was also in the middle for our home game in October against Reading at the New York Stadium. Nick Blackman opened the scoring on twenty-six minutes for the visitors but a goal three minutes into the second half from Danny Collins gave the hosts a point from the game. Danny Collins and Harry Toffolo were booked that Tuesday night.
The time before he was in charge of our game at the New Meadow in January 2014. First half goals from Tom Hitchcock, Ben Pringle and James Tavernier gave the Millers a three-nil win and all three points. Hitchcock, Rob Milsom and Mark Bradley saw yellow for Rotherham that day while Jeremy also booked three Shrewsbury players.
Jeremy was at the New York Stadium back in September 2012 when a goal from Alex Revell on thirty-four minutes was the only goal of the game. That day Jeremy booked four players – Ian Sharps, Nicky Hunt and Ben Pringle from the hosts and Torquay’s Aaron Downes.
This season Jeremy has been in the middle for thirty-three games showing one hundred and thirteen yellow cards and five reds – one of those being to Wolves player Conor Coady.
