RUFC - Head-to-Head v Hereford

The Bulls of Hereford visit Millmoor this Saturday for only the 5th time in the clubs history looking for their first victory here.
Last time out was a goalless draw back on September 7th 1991.
Both teams had started the season with 3 wins and 1 defeat from their opening 4 games.
However Hereford were 2nd to Rotherham's 3rd in the old 4th Division thanks to a single goal better goal difference.
The teams cancelled each other out when they met at Millmoor in front of 3,778 fans, Rotherham finishing the day by dropping to 6th with Hereford in 4th.

The previous meeting of the 2 sides saw a totally different outcome altogether.
On April 29th 1989, Rotherham inflicted upon Hereford what was at that time their highest Football League defeat as the rampant Millers stepped closer to the 4th division title with a resounding 6-0 win at Millmoor.
Paul Haycock and Bobby Williamson put the Millers 2-0 up at the break, before a John Buckley brace and goals from Des Hazel and Shaun Goodwin wrapped up the points in the 2nd half.
5,334 fans saw the slaughter.

Millers side was . . .

2. RUSSELL
3. SCOTT

6. BARNSLEY
7. BUCKLEY
8. GOODWIN
9. WILLIAMSON
10. HAYCOCK
11. HAZEL
12. EVANS
14. DEMPSEY


A Richard Finney penalty in the meeting in April 1978 was enough to give the Millers a vital 3 points and keep them just above the 3rd division relegation trapdoor.
The gate stood at 3,244.

A repeat of the 1989 scoreline would do wonders for our promotion aspirations and our goal diffrence which could make all the difference come May.
