RUFC - Five-nil, Five-nil, Five-nil....

RUFC - Five-nil, Five-nil, Five-nil....

Rotherham United beat Port Vale five-nil yesterday at Don Valley Stadium which got me wondering about other times we`ve won five-nil. With the help of stats genius Zipadeedoodah we came up with the following.

January 2000 was the last time that the Millers won five-nil at 'home` when Exeter City were on the back of a five-nil defeat at Millmoor.

That day Leo Fortune-West put the Millers two up in the first seven minutes of the game followed by a third goal scored by Paul Warne five minutes later. In the second half, Darren Rowbotham, who had come on at half-time to replace Steven Flack, got his marching orders on fifty seven minutes. Brian Wilsterman gave the Millers a four-nil lead on eighty-two minutes and four minutes later Paul Warne got his second of the game.

The last time the Millers actually scored five goals was in March 2009 at the Deva Stadium, Chester.

Kevin Ellison scored the opening goal for Chester that day on fourteen minutes. A penalty from Reuben Reid and goals from Micky Cummins and Drewe Broughton gave the Millers a three-one lead going into half-time. Five minutes into the second half Reid got his second and then scored his hat-trick, and the Millers fifth on seventy-two minutes.

Another five-one was at Millmoor in 2006 against Crewe Alexandra which lifted the Millers out of the relegation zone. Again it was the opposition who opened the scoring on ten minutes when Luke Varney put the ball into the back of the net. Their lead lasted just over twenty minutes when Richie Barker sent a ball through to Will Hoskins who set up Eugen Bopp to put the ball into the net. Ten minutes later the home side took the lead from Richie Partridge and in time added on Michael Higdon handled the ball in the area and Lee Williamson put away the resulting penalty. Will Hoskins got goal number four on sixty-five minutes followed by a second Richie Partridge goal nine minutes later to make the score five-one. Eight minutes from the end Bopp was sent for an early bath by referee Dave Foster after getting a second yellow card.

Now, what I really want to be doing next week is writing an article about when the Millers last won six-nil....!
