RUFC - Next Seasons Opponents - Part 2

RUFC - Next Seasons Opponents - Part 2

Starting next season in League One Rotherham United will take on some opponents they haven't played in the league for a few seasons.

Let's have a look at some of those teams



Gillingham - The Millers and the Gills met in League Two last season with Gillingham winning both games. The two sides have met forty-four times in the past with the Gills winning twenty-three of those to the Millers sixteen.

After being top for most of the season Gillingham finally clinched the League Two title on the penultimate game of the season

The Millers will travel 204 miles to the Priestfield Stadium next season

Leyton Orient - The Millers and the O's have met fifty-eight times in the past with the Millers winning twenty-six times to the O's thirteen. The last time the teams met was in the 2006/7 season in League One with the Millers winning at Brisbane Road while it was a two-two draw three months later.

Orient finished in seventh place last season just one place off the play-off positions with seventy-one points.

The Millers will travel 170 miles to the Matchroom Stadium next season

MK Dons - The Millers and the Dons have met just four times in the league in the past with the Dons winning once and there being three draws. The last time the sides met was in League Two in the 2007/8 season with the Dons getting a win at Millmoor and the game at the Stadium mk being a draw.

The Dons finished in eighth place last season with seventy points.

The Millers will travel 118 miles when they visit the Stadium mk next season

Notts County - Notts County are the oldest football league team in the world still to be playing at professional level.

The Millers and the Magpies have met in the league forty-six times in the past with County winning twenty to the Millers thirteen. Last season the two met in the FA Cup which the Millers won after a replay. The last time the teams met in the league was during the 2009/10 League Two campaign where it was a nil-nil draw at Don Valley which saw Nick Fenton sent off and County won at Meadow Lane in the final minute of the game.

County finished the season in League One in middle place of the table.

The Millers will be travelling forty-three miles to Meadow Lane next season


Oldham Athletic - The last time the Millers and the Lactics met in the league was in the 2006/7 season in League One when both games were won by Oldham although the Millers did win a Carling Cup game against them. (And I do remember a certain Paul Warne playing and scoring in one of those league games!) All-in-all the Millers and the Lactics have met thirty-six times in the league with the Millers winning nineteen times to Oldham's thirteen.

The Lactics finished nineteenth in League One last season, ensuring safety against Crawley with two games to spare.

The Millers will travel just forty-two miles when they visit Boundary Park next season


Peterborough United - The Millers and the Posh have met seventeen times in the league with the Millers winning ten of those games to Peterborough's seven. The last time the two met in the league was in the 2007/8 season in League Two when both teams won their home games three-one.

On the last day of the season the Posh were relegated from the Championship in twenty-second place.

The Millers will travel 91 miles when they visit London Road next season


Port Vale - The Millers and Vale have met fifty-eight times before this coming season in the league with Vale winning twenty-four times to the Millers twenty-two. Meeting last season both games were wins for Port Vale with the Vale scoring eight goals against the Millers in the two games.

Port Vale were pushed into third place in League Two after the Millers win in the last game of the season.

Travelling to Vale Park will be a 56 mile journey for the Millers next season


Thanks to Zipadeedoodah for working out the mileage!
