RUFC - Head-to-Head v Wycombe

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Wycombe

Last time out was our only victory at Adams Park on a snowy and memorable night on March 20th 2001.
The win over 14th placed Wycombe was sealed by a 82nd minute goal from striker Alan Lee, who hit his 12th goal for the Millers since his move from Burnley 6 months earlier.
This 1-0 win saw us leapfrog Millwall as we returned to the top of Division 2.

Prior to this was a 4-2 defeat during the disasterous 1996-97 season.
The game played on October 1st 1996 saw 23rd placed Rotherham go 2-0 up over bottom club Wycombe who were without a League win in 9 games that season.
Rotherham had won their first League game of the season 3 days earlier when a goal from Loan debutee Mark Druce was the only goal of the game v Bournemouth at Millmoor.
At Wycombe, Druce made it 2 from 2 games to put the Millers ahead after 19 minutes.
Andy Hayward doubled the lead 3 minutes before the break and another win looked on the cards.
However, Matt Lawrence narrowed the deficit with a killer goal on the stroke of half time.
Wycombe came out the stronger team in the second half and further goals from Steve McGavin (75 + 78 mins) and John Williams (85 mins) gave the home team all 3 points in front of 3,438 fans.

The previous season saw us travel to Wycombe on a major high, as we played at Adams Park 2 days after winning the Auto Windscreens Shield at Wembley.
Shaun Goater opened the scoring for the still jubilant Millers in the first half with his 23rd goal of the season, before Miguel DeSouza levelled matters after the break to leave Rotherham in 16th position, 7 points clear of relegation with just 4 games remaining.
Wycombe were in 11th place.
