RUFC - Head-to-Head v Rochdale

The last time we met in a League fixture at Millmoor was just over 8 years ago in September 1999.
This game ended up in Dale's first League victory here in 23 attempts dating back to 1931.
3,568 fans saw Graeme Atkinson's 90th minute winner take all 3 points as Rotherham stuttered on our way to promotion from Division 3 that season.
Rotherham finished the day in 12th position, while Rochdale lay in 3rd.
Former Miller, Mark Monington played for the opposition in this game

The last Millers League victory over Rochdale at Millmoor was 15 years ago on April 11th 1992.
A goal either side of the break from the 2 Shaun's, Goater and Goodwin left the Millers in 4th place and promotion from Division 4 was just 3 weeks away.
5,086 fans saw this game in which Manager Phil Henson was presented with his Manager of the Month award for our 6 straight wins in March.

Prior to this, goals have certainly been the order of the day at Millmoor as Rotherham have put 4 past Rochdale on 4 occasions, 5 goals 4 times, 6 goals once and a 7-1 victory on the opening day of the 1938-1939 season.

The most disappointing result must surely have been the game on June 7th 1947.
Rotherham took on Rochdale in the final home game of the season needing to win to make it 21 home wins out of 21 that season, equalling the record set by Brentford in 1929-1930.
Despite taking the lead twice, Rochdale finished up holding the Millers to a 3-3 draw.
