Head to Head Swans v Millers

Head to Head Swans v Millers

Rotherham United go to the Liberty Stadium, Swansea with a 100% record on Saturday December 23rd, but it was very much a different story at the old Vetch Field Ground.
Struggling Rotherham went to 5th place Swansea City on April 17th this year and produced arguably the performance of the season when coming away with a 2-0 victory.
Garry Monk scored an own-goal to put the Millers 1-0 up on 16 minutes, and my personal Man of the Match Gregor Robertson doubled the lead after 30 minutes.
A look at the team that day will show just how much the squad has changed in the following 8 months as only 3 or 4 of the side from that famous win, are likely to line up this Saturday.
1. Cutler
2. Worrell
3. Hurst
4. Robertson
5. Barker
6. Murdock
7. Williamson
8. Quinn
9. Butler
10.Shaw
11.Mullin

But as said earlier it was a very different story at the Vetch Field.
In the last 15 meetings in League and Cup, Rotherham didn't win once, and although gaining 7 draws, we only scored twice in those 15 games.
Darren Garner scoring in a 1-1 draw in December 1997, and Leo Fortune-West hitting the net in a 1-1 draw there in October 1998.
The last Millers win at The Vetch Field was back in November 1974 when goals from Richard Finney and Trevor Womble gave us a 2-0 victory.
But the Vetch Field is history now and its on to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday to hopefully maintain our 100% record there.

Have to agree with that but games like cheltenham are the ones we should be winning and not be getting soundly beaten
