March 21st in Millers history

March 21st in Millers history

March 21st in years gone by has been a very profitable day for Rotherham United, with just 1 defeat coming from 12 games.
The single defeat coming in 1953 at the hands of Nottm Forest.
Ronnie Burke, Jack Grainger and Gladstone Guest netting in a 4-3 loss a the City Ground.

Last time out on this day was in 2000, and a 58th minute goal from Darren Garner gave Rotherham all 3 points on this Tuesday night fixture.
This result gave The Millers top spot back in Division 3 from rivals Swansea, who could only muster a draw at home to 22nd placed Shrewsbury.

Best win on this day was 15 years ago at home to Scunthorpe United.
Bermudian Shaun Goater scored his first ever Millers Hat-trick while Jon Howard and Shaun Goodwin chipped in with a goal each.
This win left Rotherham in 4th place in Division 4 and promotion was just around the corner.

Another win on this day which helped The Millers towards promotion came in 1981.
A Rod Fern goal was enough to beat Chester at Sealand Road.
This left Rotherham in second place and was the first in 6 consecutive wins-all without conceding a goal-that took the Millers towards the 3rd Division Championship.

Finally, 2 local derby victories have been enjoyed on March 21st.
In 1969 a Lee Brogden goal saw The Millers win 1-0 at Oakwell, while 10 years earlier, Alan Kirkman scored the only goal of the game as Rotherham beat Sheffield Wednesday in front of 18,221 fans at a joyous Millmoor.
