Head to Head Posh v Millers

Goals should be expected at London Road on Saturday, if recent meetings are anything to go by.
22 goals have been scored in the last 5 meetings at Peterboroughs ground so look forward to a few more in this FA Cup tie.

The last meeting was on the final day of the season in May 2001 when The newly promoted Millers 'surrended' the division 2 title to Millwall.
Luke Mckenzie opened the scoring for Posh after 11 minutes, but Rotherham fought straight back and Paul Warne equalised just 5 minutes later.
That was how the game finished, but Millwall's 5-0 victory over Oldham meant the silverware was on its way to South East London.
But that didnt stop the travelling Millers, who filled the large away end, from celebrating like champions.

The other famous game there was the Boxing Day drubbing of The Posh in 1999.
Rotherham arrived at Peterborough with a much depleted squad after a flu epidemic swept through Millmoor.
Even Manager Ronnie Moore was confined to his sick bed.
The players who stepped in didn't let anybody down as they swept to a famous 5-0 victory, with goals from Hudson, Warne (2), Thompson and Fortune-West.

Rotherham have a pretty good history at Peterborough with 5 wins and 3 draws out of 13 league games.

The total record is....

Millmoor P 13 W 4 D 8 L 1 GOALS 21-11
London r P 13 W 5 D 3 L 5 GOALS 23-18

The 2 clubs have only met once before in any of the Cup competitions and that day Peterborough came out on top with a 1-0 FA Cup 3rd round win at Millmoor in January 1970.
Jimmy Hall scoring the games only goal for Posh.
