March 23rd in Millers history

March 23rd has been a pretty productive day over the years for Rotherham United, with 6 wins and 5 draws from 13 games.

Last time out was in 2002, and one of the biggest gates at Millmoor in recent years (11,426) witnessed a 1-1 draw with Manchester City.
Alan Lee opening the scoring for Rotherham on the stroke of half time, only for Ali Bernarbia to pull one back for City on the hour mark.

Our last victory on this date was back in 1993, when 2 goals from Imre Varadi (1 pen) earned the points versus Bradford City at Millmoor.

The highest victory came in 1935 and a 4-1 win over York City.
Scorers were Dickenson 2, Reid and Roberts.

The 2 defeats were a 4-1 loss at Anfield in 1957, Roy Stevenson netting the Millers consolation.
Plus Doncaster Rovers last ever league victory at Millmoor in 1985.
Rovers winning 3-2 with goals from John Buckley, Ray Deans and Colin Douglas.
Rotherham's replies both scored by Mick Gooding.
