Head 2 Head, Glovers v Millers

Rotherham United and Yeovil will be going head to head for only the 5th time at Huish Park on Saturday as the Millers will be looking to claim a league double over play-off hopefuls Yeovil Town.

Last time out was on Saturday December 2nd and the crowd of 4,823 (203 from Yeovil) were treated to a 5-goal first half spectacular.
Delroy Facey opened the scoring for the Millers on just 11 minutes, after he headed home a Will Hoskins cross for his first Millmoor League goal.
2 minutes later a cross from Martin Woods caused panic in the Glovers penalty area and Terry Skiverton diverted the ball into his own net to give the Millers a two goal lead.
However, a Leon Best header after 25 minutes and a Lee Morris goal on 31 brought the visitors back level.
Rotherham redressed matters on the stroke of half time as a run by leading marksman Will Hoskins into Yeovil's penalty area was ended abruptly by the luckless Terry Skiverton.
Hoskins brushed himself down and took the penalty himself to claim his 13th goal of the season and claimed Rotherham all 3 points as the second half brought no further score.

The clubs first clashed on Saturday 8th January 2005 in FA Cup round 3.
One of the football leagues newest clubs who were only promoted the previous season, and FA Cup giant killing specialists took the honours with a second half demolition of the Millers.
Paul Jevons started the rout with a 61st minute penalty after Martin McIntosh had upended Paul Terry in the box.
Darren Way added a second after 87 and the humiliation for the home side was complete with a 3rd from Latvian international Andrejs Stolcers in the final minute.
The 1,500 away fans in a crowd of 5,397 went home far the happiest.

The first league encounter came the following season on 9th August 2005 at The Huish Park Ground.
This time Yeovil couldn't penetrate the Millers Goal and Rotherham's newest Debutant Neil Cutler had a fine start to his Millers career as he kept a clean sheet to earn us a point in a goalless draw.

The return fixture at Millmoor on 10th December 2005 saw The Millers dominate with a shot ratio of 17 to Yeovil's 2, but it was The Glovers who once again left Millmoor with smiles on their faces as they fought back from an early setback to win 2-1.
Deon Burton opened the scoring for The Millers after 18 minutes and Yeovil who had lost their previous 5 games must have feared the worst.
However a Colin Murdock own goal after 32 minutes and a 2nd from Matt Harrold was enough to take maximum points back to Somerset.
3,929 attended the game.
