RUFC - Head-to-Head v Wycombe
Rotherham United welcome Wycombe Wanderers to Don Valley this Saturday, here's a look at the history of this fixture.

The Millers will be looking to continue a 5 game unbeaten home run against Wycombe since the first meeting in 1995.

Last time out came earlier this year on January 19th.
Rotherham were in 2nd place, while Wycombe sat in the last play-off place.
The Millers took a 14th minute lead as Stephen Brogan hammered in a stunning free-kick.
However, 11 minutes after the break, Scott McGleish hit his 16th goal of the season when his looping cross found it's way over the head of Rotherham keeper Andy Warrington and into the net for the equaliser.
The season's highest home gate of the season, 6,709, saw the Millers consolidate 2nd spot, 7 points behind leaders MK Dons, and Wycombe leapfrog Morecambe into 6th.

The first ever meeting of the 2 sides came on 14th January 1995 at Millmoor.
Wycombe were fresh into the Football League the previous season and looked well placed for a 3rd succesive promotion as they sat in 4th position in Division 2 on the morning of the match, while Rotherham were struggling back in 17th place.
Wycombe, who included former England striker Cyrille Regis in their team, stood just 1 point behind Huddersfield in 2nd, but a Steve Brown own goal in the first half and a strike from Millers striker Andy Hayward after the break gave Rotherham all 3 points.
The result saw the Millers climb to 15th place while Wycombe dropped back to 6th in front of 3,537 fans.
