The previous meeting at Millmoor was on December 18th 1999, as 3rd placed Rotherham took on 2nd placed Darlington, in a battle for automatic promotion from Division 3.
Darlington had gone above the Millers courtesy of a 3-1 win over bottom club Chester 3 days prior to this meeting.
The Millers went into this game with just 1 defeat in their previous 10 League games.
Darlington took the lead against the run of play on 57 minutes, as Millers winger Trevor Berry, tried to clear a Marco Gabbiadini header, but the ball hit Berry on the shin and flew past keeper Mike Pollitt for an o.g.
It was all square in the 83rd minute when Paul Warne whipped in a low cross and substitute Jason White scored with a good left foot shot.
The Millers were rewarded 2 minutes from time when Quakers stopper Mark Samways made a brilliant save to keep out a shotfrom Leo Fortune-West, but White was on hand again to smash home the loose ball for the winner, which took the Millers back up to 2nd place in front of 4,234 fans.
Former Millers loanee, Peter Duffield lined up for Darlington.
