RUFC - Next Seasons Opponents - Part 1

RUFC - Next Seasons Opponents - Part 1

Rotherham United start next season in League One - and it seems to have taken us a long time to get there!

So let's have a look at the other teams we will be visiting and who will be visiting the New York Stadium.

Bradford City - The Millers and the Bantams played twice this season with the Millers winning both games. In the past the teams have met fifty-eight times in the league with Rotherham winning thirty-three of those games and Bradford twenty-four.

Having a busy season the Bantams travelled to Wembley twice last season - once for the League Cup final against Premiership Swansea City and then in the League Two Play-Off Final which saw them beat Northampton three-nil to get promoted to League One.

A short journey for the Millers next season to Valley Parade (the Coral Windows Stadium) where the distance is forty-three miles - though last time out it was a nightmare and a half for some fans to get there with bad traffic being a hindrance.

Brentford - The Millers and the Bees have met fifty-two times in the League in the past, the last time being in League Two in the 2008/9 season when both games ended nil-nil. Rotherham have won twenty times against Brentford with the Bees winning sixteen.

After finishing third last season the Bees lost out to Yeovil in the League One Play-Off Final at Wembley.

The Millers will be travelling 164 miles to Griffin Park.

Bristol City - The last time the Millers and the Robins met was in League One in the 2006/7 season with City winning at Ashton Gate and it being a one-all draw at Millmoor. Altogether the Millers and Robins have met forty-two times in the League with Rotherham having nineteen wins to City's fifteen.

After finishing bottom the Robins came down from the Championship.

The Millers will be travelling 181 miles to Ashton Gate next season.

Carlisle United - Carlisle and Rotherham have met sixty-two times in the League in the past with the Millers winning thirty of those to the Cumbrians eighteen. The last time the two met was in League One in the 2006/7 season with the first game at Brunton Park being a one-all draw and one-nil win at Millmoor gave the Cumbrians all three points.

Carlisle finished seventeen last season and had a minus twenty-one goal difference.

The Millers will travel 151 miles to Brunton Park next season

Colchester United - The last time that the Millers and the U's met was in League One in the 2005/6 season when Colchester won both games. The two have met twenty times in the league in the past with the Millers winning ten times to the U's three times.

The U's finished just three points above the bottom four last season on fifty-one points in twentieth place.

The Millers will travel 178 miles to the Colchester Community Stadium

Coventry City - The Millers and the Sky Blues have met just twenty-six times in the League in the past with City winning eleven times to the Millers seven. The last time the teams met was in the Championship in 2004/5. The game at Highfield Road was a two-one win for the home side while the game at Millmoor ended nil-nil.

The Sky Blues finished last season in fifteenth place.

The Millers will travel 87 miles to Coventry next season

Crawley Town - Relatively new to the League the only time the two clubs have met in the past was in League Two in the 2011/12 season after Crawley had been promoted from the Conference. Crawley won both games which helped them get their second promotion in two years.

After having a promising start to their campaign last season the Red Devils finished in a very respectable tenth place.

Travelling 207 miles to the Broadfield Stadium it will be the Millers longest league journey next season

Crewe Alexandra - The Millers and the Alex met two seasons ago when Rotherham won the game at Gresty Road (The Alexandra Stadium) and the game at Don Valley was a draw. In the past the two sides have met seventy-six times with the Alex winning twenty-nine times which is one more than the Millers.

Crewe ended the season with sixty-four points and in thirteenth place

The Millers will travel 76 to Gresty Road next season
