Date:Friday April 27 2007
April 27th has been another poor day for the Millers as we have won just 4 and drawn 5 from 15 games.
Last time out was a Sunday tea-time kick off as we bore witness to Portsmouth clinching the League one trophy at Fratton Park on April 27th 2003.
Champions elect Portsmouth lead twice early on, but we pegged them back both times with goals from Branston and Swailes.
But Todorov scored his second (merson got the other from penalty spot) on the stroke of half time and it stayed 3-2, to spark celebrations all around the famous old ground.
You have to go back 33 years to the Millers last victory on April 27th.
This came courtesy of a 2-1 win over Mansfield Town at Millmoor.
The Stags lead through Mike Laverick, but a Sandy Pate own goal levelled matters as we went into half time at 1-1.
A Trevor Phillips goal in the second half gave the Millers both points.
This was the third win running on April 27th, following two 1-0 victories over Bury, both at Gigg Lane.
Firstly in 1965, thanks to a John Hellawell winner.
Then in 1971 as Carl Gilbert scored the only goal.
The only other Millers victory was in 1963 as goals from Ian Butler, Ken Houghton plus an own goal helped Rotherham to a 3-1 win.
