RUFC - Head-to-Head v Gillingham

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Gillingham
Fellow promotion hopefuls, Gillingham, come to Don Valley on Easter Monday having suffered an embarrassing defeat to next to bottom Barnet at the Priestfield Stadium on Saturday while the Millers got a draw with third from bottom Northampton on Friday.

Gillingham were the winners at Priestfield in February against the Millers three-one when Cody McDonald opened the scoring on five minutes only for Nicky Law to equalise two minutes later. Unfortunately, for the Millers, McDonald got another and Dennis Oli finished it off in the final minute of the match.

Last season at Don Valley the Millers were two-nil winners with a goal in each half. Jamie Clarke, on loan from Blackburn Rovers, scored in the first half and Jamie Green in the second half.

There's been some high scoring games between the two sides, one being in September 2005 at Millmoor. Although the Millers dominated the first half they couldn't find the back of the net. A half-time team talk from Mick Harford worked miracles and Paul McLaren scored his first goal of the season, in the first minute of the second half. Lee Williamson and Deon Burton between them pummelled the Gills goal before Burton finally got the Millers second on eighty-one minutes. In the final minute of the game Martin Butler was set up by Michael Keane and scored to make it a three-nil victory for the Millers.

Phil Gilchrist and John Mullin for Rotherham and Michael Flynn and Alan Pouton for Gillingham saw yellow cards that day by referee Andy D'Urso in front of 4,253 fans.
