RUFC - Head-to-Head v Burton



Rotherham United entertain Burton Albion at Don Valley on Saturday for only the fifth time in the League, the Millers winning two of the games and the other two being draws.

The Brewers joined the Football League in 2009 and first played at Don Valley in December that year. The game ended two-two with Adam Le Fondre scoring both Millers' goals - one in each half. Aaron Webster pulled one back for Albion on sixty-five minutes and five minutes later Nick Fenton took a lunge at Webster on the half-way round, for no apparent reason, and was sent for an early bath. The visitors then got on top of ten-man Rotherham and five minutes from time Greg Pearson got an equaliser for Burton.

The last time the teams met at Don Valley was in September last year. Kevin Ellison put the Millers one up in the opening minute of the game with Ryan Cresswell and Adam Le Fondre making it three-nil before half-time. In a complete turn around the second half was only a minute old when Shaun Harrad put away a penalty. Just after the hour mark Harrad got his and Albion's second and he got his hat-trick seven minutes from the end of the game.
