15th March in Millers history.
Rotherham United just have the edge in this series of matches played on March 15th.
4 wins compared to 3 defeats just shades it.
In the last 2 outings on this date, Millers striker Paul Warne has scored his only goal of the respective seasons.
Last time out in 2005, a 90th minute strike from Paul Warne gave United, rock bottom in the Championship, their first league win in 10 games before the lowest gate of the season, just 3,804 turning out.
The previous game was in 2003 and The Millers earned a point from their long trip to Gillingham, as a Rod Wallace equaliser on 22 minutes, cancelled out a Paul Warne opener on 12.
Later in this game Millers centre half Guy Branston was red carded for a second bookable offence.
The highest Millers win on March 15th came way back in 1958, as Rotherham hammered neighbours Barnsley by 4 goals to 1.
Albert Broadbent netted twice with Keith Kettleborough and Barry Webster getting a goal each in front of 11,572 ecstatic fans at Millmoor.
On the down side, a second half goal from Argentinian Pedro Verde gave Sheffield United a 1-0 derby win on March 15th 1980 to leave The Millers struggling at the wrong end of Division 3.
