RUFC - It's FA Cup Weekend!

RUFC - It's FA Cup Weekend!

Rotherham United play their first FA Cup game in Rotherham since November 2007, which probably would be best forgotten!

The game was a replay when Forest Green arrived at Millmoor after the Millers had drawn two-all in the original game at the New Lawn. The non-league side beat the Millers three-nil and were given a standing ovation by the Millers fans at Millmoor.

The last 'home' FA Cup game the Millers were in was at Don Valley against York City. The game ended nil-nil with the Minstermen winning the replay at Bootham Crescent three-nil.

Last season the Millers' exploits in the FA Cup came to a halt in Round Two. In Round One non-league Barrow gave the Millers a scare at Holker Street by taking a sixteenth minute lead with a goal from Paul Rutherford. Lewis Grabban equalised on eighty-two minutes and with it looking like there would be a replay at Don Valley the Millers were given a bit of a lucky penalty six minutes later when Paul Smith was deemed to handle the ball in the area. After Phil Bolland threw the ball at Grabban and was booked for dissent, the Millers striker calmly placed the ball on the spot and scored the penalty to give the Millers an away tie with Shrewsbury Town. The Millers went into the lead with a Grabban penalty three minutes from half-time at Greenhous Meadow. Marcus Marshall was shown a second yellow on the stroke of half-time and three minutes into the second half Ian Sharps equalised for the Shrews. With eight minutes to go Johnny Mullins was adjudged to have brought down Marvin Morgan in the area and Nicky Wroe scored the spot-kick to send the Millers out of the FA Cup.
