April 7th in Millers history

April 7th in Millers history

Once again a slight advantage to Rotherham based on games played on April 7th over the years.
7 wins and 5 draws coming from 18 games.
Last time out was 5 years ago, and a excellent 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion in the Championship.
Bob Taylor opened the scoring for the Baggies on 33 minutes, but the Premiership bound club were pegged back after 50 with an equaliser from Darren Byfield.
However the incident that made all the morning papers the next day came towards the end when a shot towards goal ended up being dragged out of the net from a good 2 foot over the line by Chris Sedgewick's outstretched boot.
Neither the Referee or the Linesman saw the ball clearly cross the line and the Ref waved play on, amidst furious protests from Albion players and supporters.

The previous year, luck was definately not on the Millers side as the top 2 in Division 2 met at the New Den, the home of Millwall.
The Lions den was just that as the intimadating atmosphere took it's toll and we were well and truly thumped 4-0.
This result more or less gave the Division 2 Championship to Millwall.
Steve Claridge hit 2 goals, while Tim Cahill and Steven Reid scored one each for the triumphant Lions.

Rotherham's last victory on this date came in 1990 at Blackpool.
A 2-1 victory was earned with second half goals from Clive Mendonca and Stuart Cash, who was on loan from Nottm Forest.
Gary Brook scoring the Seasiders consolation.

The Millers biggest win on April 7th came in 1984 as Brentford were hammered 4-0 at Millmoor.
Rotherham followed up a 3-2 midweek win at Port Vale with another 3 points to lift them from 23rd to 20th in the fight against relegation to Division 4.
Goalscorers were, Tony Simmons, Mike Trusson, Alan Birch and Bobby Mitchell.
Birch had now scored 4 goals in 3 games since his move from Wolves.
