RUFC - Head-to-Head v Wycombe

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Wycombe

The Chairboys of Wycombe are in town for their 5th visit to Millmoor since winning promotion to the Football League in 1993, and they are still without a win here.
Goals have been few and far between in this fixture with just six being scored in the previous four games.

Last time out here was back on 16th September 2000, when a 1-0 victory was ground out to lift the Millers into seventh place in Division Two.
This win came after a very mixed week for Rotherham, because just seven days prior to this game we had been humiliated with a 6-1 defeat at Cambridge United, closely followed by the 3-1 win at Wrexham during the petrol blockade fiasco.
The goal which won the game against Wycombe came just three minutes into the second half, with big centre-half Guy Branston supplying the finish.
The game also saw David Artell making his full league debut for his home town club.

The Millers team v Wycombe was....
1. GRAY
2. SCOTT
3. HURST
4. GARNER
5. ARTELL
6. BRANSTON
7. WATSON
8. TALBOT
9. ROBINS
10. WARNE
11. TURNER
SUBS. BEECH, BERRY.


Prior to this was a 2-1 victory for Danny Bergara's Rotherham side during the disasterous 1996-97 season.
Rotherham were looking for the first League victory in eleven games and Shaun Goodwin gave the Millers a 17th minute lead from the penalty spot.
Lee Glover doubled the scoreline on 69th, and despite a 89th minute penalty from Wycombe's Dave Carroll, Rotherham held on for all three points.
This game which took place on January 18th 1997 proved to be the only League victory in a run of twenty games between October 26th and March 22nd.


Millers team for this game was...

1. CHERRY
2. BLADES
3. ROSCOE
4. GARNER
5. MONINGTON
6. BRECKIN
7. SANDERMAN
8. GOODWIN
9. GLOVER
10. HURST
11. McGLASHAN
SUB GAYLE


The other 2 Millmoor games v Wycombe ended in a goalless draw in March 1996 and a 2-0 Millers victory in our first encounter in January 1995.
Rotherham goalscorers that day were Andy Hayward and a Steve Brown own goal.
