RUFC - Head-to-Head v Exeter City



The Millers take on the Grecians on Tuesday looking for our first win there in 5 visits since 1992.
Last time out at Exeter was a 3-1 defeat in our 3rd League game of the promotion winning season, 1999-2000.
2,646 fans saw former Hull and Huddersfield player Rob Dewhurst give the home side the lead after just 5 minutes, but Millers midfielder, Darren Garner levelled the match on 23.
However, Exeter went into the interval 2-1 up following a goal from Chris Holloway 4 minutes from half-time.
A Barry McConnell penalty in the last minute made sure of the 3 points for City, and left the Millers faithful with a long and unrewarded journey home

Rotherham's last win at Exeter came on the opening day of the season in the old 3rd division on Saturday August 15th 1992.
The Millers were fresh from promotion from Division 4 at the first attempt, and faced an Exeter team who had finished just 1 place and 2 points above the 3rd Division relegation zone in 1991-92.
Millers boss, Phil Henson handed out first team debuts to defender Chris Wilder signed from Sheffield United and to midfielder Ian Banks signed from Barnsley.
Both Rotheham goals came in the space of 2 second half minutes, as Shaun Goater (59) and Tony Cunningham (61) secured the points for Rotherham in front of 3,362 fans on a red hot August afternoon.

The Millers biggest win at Grecian Park came in a 4th division game on 22nd February 1975.
A 4-0 victory gave Rotherham another 2 points towards their promotion push as we finished the day in 5th place, and the season in 3rd behind Mansfield and Shrewsbury.
Rotherham went into the half-time break with a 3-0 lead and added one more after the break to drop Exeter down to 9th.
Goalscorers that afternoon were Dick Habbin, Trevor Phillips (2) and Jimmy Goodfellow in front of 3,548 fans
