RUFC - Spotlight on . . .

Rotherham United take on Scunthorpe United tomorrow evening in their second home pre-season game.

Here are a few facts about Scunny:

Scunthorpe United have been in the Football League since 1950 but was in existence since 1899 under different names, one being Scunthorpe and Lindsey United. In 1988 they became the first English club of the modern era to move to a purpose built stadium, Glanford Park.

Their record attendance was at their former ground The Old Showground in January 1954 against Portsmouth in an FA Cup game which was 23,935. The highest attendance at Glanford Park was 8,906 in a League One game against Nottingham Forest in March 2007

There have been two victories of 8-1, one against Luton Town in April 1965 and one against Torquay United in October 1995, but League games.

The Irons record defeat came in November 1952 against Carlisle United and was 8-0

The most they paid for a player was 425,000 for Martin Paterson from Stoke City and the highest fee they received was from Sheffield United who paid 2,000,000+ for Billy Sharp

Scunthorpe were relegated from the Championship at the end of last season.

The last time the Millers played the Iron was in the 2006/07 season in League One. In the game at Millmoor, The Millers won 2-1 with goals from Eugen Bopp and Pablo Mills after Billy Sharp had put the visitors ahead in the sixth minute. Scunthorpe won the return game at Glanford Park with Jermaine Beckford getting the only goal of the match.

Head to Head

The Millers and Iron have met forty-six times, thirty-four of those being in the League - both teams won twelve times each with ten games being drawn.
In the FA Cup there have been four draws and two wins for each team
In the League Cup both teams have won two games each
Making it very even between the teams - both teams winning sixteen games each and having fourteen draws.

The game kicks off tomorrow evening at Don Valley Stadium, Tuesday, 22 July, at 7.30 pm
