RUFC - Head-to-Head v Leicester City

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Leicester City
Rotherham United`s first friendly of the season is at Don Valley against Championship side, Leicester City.

The last time the two sides met was in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy in November 2008 at Don Valley. Drewe Broughton scored the first goal of the game on the stroke of half-time and Dale Tonge made it two-nil to the Millers thirteen minutes after the re-start and the Foxes, that night, had no response.

The teams met four times in the League recently - City won two of those games, the Millers one and one was a one all draw. The Millers` win came on Boxing Day in 2004 at The Walker Stadium, when a goal from Shaun Barker, on thirty seven minutes, gave the visitors all three points.

The teams that day were -

Leicester City
Taylor
Makin
Stewart
Dublin

Gillespie
Morris (Benjamin)
Nalis (Gemmill)

Referee, AR Hall, booked Scrowcroft of Leicester and Barker, Campbell-Ryce, Junior and Monkhouse from Rotherham

Last season the Foxes finished in fifth place in the Championship but their promotion dream ended in a penalty shoot out against Cardiff in the play-offs.
