RUFC - Head to Head v Wrexham

RUFC - Head to Head v Wrexham

Here is a look at the history of this fixture down the years.

The Millers won the last time out against the North Wales outfit back on February 20th 2001.
This win came right in the middle of a 5 game winning run (all at home) that set the Millers on the way to automatic promotion for the second year running.
Alan Lee scored on the stroke of half time with his 5th goal in 3 games, and his 10th since joining Rotherham from Burnley, primarily on-loan in September 2000.
Brian Wilsterman, the Suranese defender, added a second after 64 minutes to make the 3 points safe.
This win left Rotherham in 4th position just 4 points adrift of the 2nd automatic promotion spot, but with 3 games in hand.
Wrexham were left in 16th place.

Prior to this Wrexham took 7 points out of 9 from Millmoor with 2 wins and a draw, but these victories were their first dating back to 1949.
Steve Morris scoring the only goal of the game in May 1996 in the final game of the season.
The previous season saw the man Millers fans loved to hate, Gary Bennett, netting the only goal in April 1995.

If your looking for good omens, then look no further than a Millmoor win over Wrexham.
As stated, the win in 2001 came amidst a 5 game winning run.
The 3-0 victory in March 1992 was the first in a 6 game winning run which gave Phil Henson the Manager of the Month.
Tony Cunningham netting twice and Jon Howard making it 3.
The previous win in 1982 was the 7th in the record breaking 9 game run, which gave Emlyn Hughes the award.
Rod Fern and Ronnie Moore scoring in a 2-0 win.
Finally, the win prior to this in February 1977 was the first in a 5 game winning run, as an Alan Crawford penalty and a second from Trevor Phillips gave the Millers a 2-0 victory.

The highest win over the Robins at Millmoor came way back in November 1947, as goals from Armitage 2, McMahon 2, Guest and Ardron earned Rotherham a 6-0 win in front of 16,702 fans.

The first battle will be to get the pitch ready to play on. Then to rock the Robins.
