March 27th in Millers history

Historically, March 27th hasn't been too kind to Rotherham, but of the more recent games, we have lost only 1 in 7.

That defeat came in 1993 away at Preston.
Ian Banks and Chris Wilder scored for the Millers, but goals from Hemsworth born Micky Norbury (2) and an hat-trick from Tony Ellis secured a 5-2 win for North End.

Last time out for The Millers on March 27th was 3 years ago at home to Preston and this time it was Rotherham who triumphed, courtesy of a 30th minute goal from Martin Butler.

A memorable victory occured on this day in 1989 also, as a Bobby Williamson hat-trick in a 3-1 win at Crewe took Rotherham closer to the 4th Division Championship.

Finally, a John Seasman goal on this day 25 years ago was enough to beat Queen's Park Rangers at Millmoor and leave The Millers in 4th place in Division 2.
