RUFC - Head-to-Head v MK Dons

Whatever your politics are regarding the Wimbledon/AFC/MK Dons Football triangle, the fact remains that this is only the third ever League meeting between Rotherham United and Milton Keynes Dons, and only the second at Millmoor.

Back in season 2005-2006 we drew 1-1 at the National Hockey Stadium on a bitterly cold Saturday in October.
Andy Monkhouse had given 17th placed Rotherham a 24th minute lead before Malvin Kamara levelled matters with just 10 minutes left on the clock to lift MK up to 22nd in Division 1.

By the time the Millmoor game came round on May 6th 2006, we were down in 20th still needing a point from this last game of the season, while the Dons still in 22nd needed no less than a win to ensure their safety from the drop into the League basement.
A crowd of 7,625, the highest of the season, packed into Millmoor to watch this us or them decider.
2 first half long range efforts from MK's Izale McLeod and the Millers Lee Williamson had the crowd out of their seats, but both failed to find the target.
The best efforts in the second half were a Martin Butler 1 on 1, which Keeper Matt Baker parried away from goal with his foot, and Millers Keeper Neil Cutler saving from McLeod at full stretch.
After an agonising 90 minutes for both teams, Sussex Referee Clive Penton blew to end the season and with it, Milton Keynes stay in Division 1.
