RUFC - Head-to-Head v Barnet

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Barnet
Rotherham United and Barnet go into this game at either end of the table - the Millers pushing for promotion in fourth place and Barnet fighting to keep their league status in twenty-third.

In the past both sides have won seven games each between themselves and there have been three draws. The last time the Bees were at Don Valley was last season, with the Millers winning the game three-nil with goals from Kevin Ellison, Nicky Law and Adam Le Fondre.

The first game the two ever played against each other was just over ten years ago in the 1991/2 season. The first game, at Underhill, had seven goals in it including a Don Page hat-trick to give the Millers a five-two win, with the other goals coming from Shaun Goodwin and Mark Todd. The return game at Millmoor, a month later, was also a win for the Millers, three-nil with goals from Tony Cunningham, Chris Hutchings and Don Page.

In recent years, one of the most memorable games against Barnet was in October 2008, which ended up being a first ever league defeat for the Millers at Don Valley. Nick Fenton opened the scoring for the Millers on seven minutes but Albert Adomah, who caused the Millers problems all day, put in a great cross for Luke Medley to head past Andy Warrington for an equaliser ten minutes later. On the half-hour mark, Alex Rhodes was clear on goal but was felled by Max Porter who was instantly sent off by referee Graham Salisbury. Up stepped Mark Hudson to take the resulting penalty but it was a soft kick and easily saved by Lee Harrison in the Bees goal. This seemed to unsettle the home side more than Barnet and six minutes later Adomah smashed the ball towards goal, leaving Warrington grasping at air as it flew past him into the goal. Twelve minutes into the second half, ten-man Barnet made it three-one with a goal from Cliff Akurang followed five minutes later by Akurang's second and Barnets fourth. But then the Millers suddenly woke up a Danny Harrison free-kick on the seventieth minute was glanced into the goal by Ian Sharps. Ten minutes from time, Reuben Reid went past several Barnet defenders into the box and was pulled back leaving Mr Salisbury no choice but to award a second penalty to the home side. Mark Burchill took this one and sent Harrison the wrong way to make it three-four. It was all the Millers after that and although Andy Nicholas had a header that rattled the crossbar and Nick Fenton had a shot cleared off the line, the Barnet defence stood solid and Barnet took all three points.

Earlier this season, at Underhill, goals from Ellison, Tom Pope, Danny Harrison and Adam Le Fondre gave the Millers a four-one win. Mark Byrne got a consolation for the Bees.
