RUFC - Head-to-Head v Crewe

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Crewe
Rotherham United travel to Gresty Road tomorrow to take on Crewe Alexandra for, what will be the seventy-ninth time in all competitions.

Last season the Millers won both league games against the Alex - one-nil at Gresty Road when an own goal in the second minute was enough to give them all three points. At Don Valley the score was three-one. Nick Fenton gave the Millers the lead just before half-time with AJ Leitch-Smith getting an equaliser just after the hour mark. In the final five minutes Adam Le Fondre and Ryan Taylor scored for the Millers.

In the 2004/5 season the teams met in the Championship. The first game in September saw both teams in the bottom two positions and it was surprising that the game produced five goals. Mark Burchill put the Millers ahead on seventeen minutes only for the Alex to get a penalty two minutes later after Shaun Barker was judged to have fouled Kenny Lunt in the area. Dean Ashton made no mistake from the penalty spot. The game stayed one-one until the sixtieth minute when Lunt scored for the visitors and ten minutes later Ashton got his second to make it three-one. Shaun Barker made up for giving the penalty away earlier and scored with three minutes to go but the Millers couldn't find the equaliser.

The game at Gresty Road in January ended one-one with John Mullin putting the Millers in front on thirty-three minutes but they couldn't hold on and Andy White got the equaliser for the home side ten minutes from time.

After this game the Millers were rooted to the bottom of the Championship with Crewe doing well in twelfth place.

The biggest score was in 1932/3 when the teams were in the English Division Three North and Crewe won eight-nil at home with the Millers beating Crewe three months later at Millmoor five-nil.

In all league games between the two, the Alex have had twenty-nine games, the Millers twenty-seven and there have been eighteen draws.
