RUFC - Head-to-Head v Shrewsbury

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Shrewsbury
Rotherham United take on Shrewsbury Town on Saturday at Don Valley, which is third place taking on second place.

The Millers and Shrews have faced each other fifty-four times in the past with Town coming out on top, winning twenty-four of those whilst the Millers have won seven less. Of the last five games, Shrewsbury have won four and one was a draw. The last time the Millers beat Shrewsbury was at Millmoor in November 2007 when Ryan Taylor and Derek Holmes got the goals that beat the visitors.

Of course, Millers fans remember beating Shrewsbury in the Auto Windscreen Final at Wembley in 1996 when Nigel Jemson's two goals were enough to get the win for the Millers although a goal from Mark Taylor in the last ten minutes gave the Millers a bit of a fright.

One of the best wins for the Millers against Saturday's opponents was in November 1989 when the Millers ran out four-two winners. Stewart Evans, Nigel Johnson, Nigel Pepper and Bobby Williamson scored for the Millers on that day.

A goal from Lionel Ainsworth on five minutes was enough to give Shrewsbury all three points earlier this season at the New Meadow.
