April 6th in Millers history

April 6th in Millers history

The Millers have managed 5 wins on April 6th over the years, but the last victory was back in 1965.
A 3-0 win over Leyton Orient 42 years back was the last success on this date despite playing 7 games since.
John Halliwell, Keith Pring and Brian Tiler found the Orient goal that day in front of 6,795 at Millmoor.

Last time out on April 6th saw Rotherham lose 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace in 2004.
Neil Shipperley put The Eagles 2-0 up after 11 and 27 minutes and despite a 85th minute goal by Michael Proctor, Palace held on for victory.
This defeat left Rotherham just 4 points clear of relegation with 6 games of the season remaining.

11 years ago, Millmoor staged a Wembley rehearsal as Rotherham played Shrewsbury Town.
8 days later the two sides would meet again at The Twin Towers, as they would battle out the Auto Windscreen Shield Final.
In the league encounter Shrewsbury scored a second half equaliser as the sides shared four goals.
The two Shauns, Goater and Goodwin got Rotherham's share, while Steve Anthrobus and Ian Stevens replied for the visitors.
