RUFC - On this day - 20th January

Rotherham United haven't faired that well in games on the 20th January since the start of the millenium....

20th January 2010

This time last year, Chairman, Tony Stewart told the fans that he was 'gagging` to tell us about the new ground. Unfortunately, until he got confirmation his lips had to remain sealed.

The Reserves played Middlesbrough Reserves in the afternoon at Don Valley and lost 3-2. Luke Williams and Bruno Pilatos gave the visitors a two-nil lead at half-time with Cameron Park making it three-nil not long after the break. Ryan Taylor pulled two back for the Millers, one from the penalty spot.
Millers Reserves - Annerson, Tonge, Haggerty, Lynch, Nicholas, Gladwin, Brogan, Cummins (Banks), Austin, Pope (Hiley), R Taylor.
Middlesbrough - Steele, Corker, Walker (Gray), Atkinson, Bennett, Smallwood, Franks (Weldon), Pilatos, Park, Martin, Williams.

20th January 2009

Millers fans were getting a bit excited with a possible trip to Wembley on the cards as they went into the Johnstone`s` Paint Trophy Northern Final against Scunthorpe.

The first leg, on this day, was at Glanford Park and two goals in the space of six minutes in the second half for Scunthorpe gave the Millers a mountain to climb in the second leg in February. Martyn Woolford and Krystian Pearce scored for the Iron that night in front of just over six thousand fans. The second leg was a one-nil win for Scunthorpe at Don Valley.

20th January 2008

Then Millers Chairman, Denis Coleman told Rother FM that the 'buzz was back at Millmoor on this day three years ago.

This was his reaction to the United Rotherham Day that had taken place the day before when the Millers entertained Wycombe at Millmoor. The club had asked fans to 'come out in force` and support their club and six thousand seven hundred and nine people came through the turnstiles that afternoon. The game ended one-one, with Stephen Brogan scoring for the home side on fourteen minutes with Scott McGleish replying for the visitors sixteen minutes into the second half.

Millmoor had Millers supporters on all four sides of the ground and prior to kick-off 'United Rotherham` banners were held aloft to show the council that the town really did want the club to have a new ground.

20th January 2007

The Millers made the trip to the Lions Den and came back with what they deserved - nowt.
It was a dismal display as Millwall took the Millers apart and won four-nil with goals from Neil Harris, Chris Zebroski and a certain Darren Byfield getting two. The game was ill-tempered and, on a number of occasions, referee, Keith Hill, had to calm things down between the sides before eventually sending the Millers Justine Cochrane off on eighty-two minutes after a long running feud with Alan Dunne boiled over. Chris O`Grady was handed his debut fifteen minutes from the end of this game coming off the bench to replace Delroy Facey.

After the game, Millers Manager, Alan Knill said he was 'embarrassed` over the performance his team had put out saying 'there was no belief out there. I am disappointed for all the travelling fans.`

20th January 2006

On this day five years ago, the Millers were getting ready to take on Nottingham Forest at Millmoor the next day. Seven thousand two hundred and twenty-two fans saw a one-all draw with Nathan Tyson scoring in the first half for the visitors and four minutes from time, Paul Shaw getting the equaliser for the Millers.

20th January 2001

On this day ten years ago the Millers, who were second in the old Division Two table, were travelling to take on eighth placed Notts County at Meadow Lane. Seven thousand fans went through the turnstiles that day and they saw the Millers go into half-time with a one-nil lead thanks to a Guy Branston goal on thirty-five minutes. Unfortunately, the half-time team talk didn`t work very well as County`s Anders Jacobsen came out and scored straight from the kick-off. This was followed by three more County goals from Richard Liburd, Andy Hughes and Mark Stallard to give the home side a four-one win. The Millers` Nick Fenton played for County in this game.
