April 19th in Millers history

April 19th over the years has just gone in Rotherham's favour, with 6 wins and 8 draws from 19 games.
Only 1 of the 5 defeats has come in the last 6 games.
This was a 2-0 loss at Bury in 1986.
Joe Jakub and future England star Lee Dixon scoring to leave The Millers without a win in 7, albeit comfortably placed in mid-table.

Last time out saw a goalless draw at Selhurst Park in 2003, as hosts Crystal Palace came to terms with life without Manager Trevor Francis, sacked 24 hours earlier.

In 1997, the already relegated Millers, ended a run of 6 straight losses on this day at Burnley.
4 goals were scored in an amazing 5 minute second half spell.
Andy Cooke put the Clarets 1-0 up after 13 minutes, before Rotherham's St Lucian forward, Earl Jean equalised on 25.
On 55, Jean made it 2-1 and just 2 minutes later he completed his hat-trick for the Millers.
Unfortunately, on 58 minutes Andy Cooke got his 2nd and on 60 the scoring ended as Paul Barnes made it 3-3.
The hat-trick made Earl Jean the seasons highest scorer for Rotherham with just 6 goals.

Rotherham's last win on this day came in 1994 with a 3-0 victory over Exeter City.
The Millers previous home game had seen them score 7 without reply against Hartlepool, and the soon to be relegated Grecians were dealt another blow as goals from, Shaun Goater, Andy Williams and Imre Varadi made the 250 mile Tuesday night journey home a nightmare.

2 more results to stand out on April 19th were a 5-3 win over neighbours Doncaster in 1930 and a 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Millmoor in 1960.
Kenneth Waterhouse and Alan Kirkman scoring against the Scousers.
