RUFC - Head-to-Head v Leicester

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Leicester
Rotherham United welcome Leicester City to Don Valley on Tuesday night for the first round of the Carling Cup.

The last time the sides met was almost three years ago, this time in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, when the Millers won two-nil with goals from Drewe Broughton, on the stroke of half-time, and Dale Tonge thirteen minutes into the second half.

The last time the Millers and Foxes met in the League Cup was a two-legged tie in 1979/80 season. The first leg took place at Filbert Street, and 11,210 saw 2nd Division Leicester go into half time level with 3rd Division Rotherham at 1-1. Alan Young netting for the home side and Richard Finney for the Millers. A second half goal from Mick Gooding gave Rotherham the advantage for the second leg at Millmoor.
By half time in the second leg, Rotherham had built up a 3-1 aggregate lead courtesy of a goal from former Leicester player Rodney Fern. His second of the game and another from Mick Gooding made the final score 3-0 (5-1 on aggregate) and the Rotherham fans amongst the crowd of 5,179 went home the happier.

The last league game between these two sides was on Boxing Day in 2004 at the Walker Stadium. A Shaun Barker goal on thirty-five minutes was enough to give the Millers all three points.
