RUFC - Head-to-Head v The Gulls

RUFC - Head-to-Head v The Gulls
Rotherham United make their second long journey of the season to Torquay tomorrow, although the first game in December was called off, which left the team and fans with a nightmare journey back - some fans being on the road for eighteen hours.

Last season the Millers won two-nil at a cold wet Plainmoor with two goals in the last five minutes - one from Kevin Ellison and the other from Adam Le Fondre.

Ten years previously the Millers lost two-one there. The home side went into the lead on twelve minutes from a Brian Healy penalty with Steve Thompson getting an equaliser three minutes before half-time. Torquay put on Tom Stocco after the half-time break and four minutes later Stocco got all three points for Torquay.
