RUFC - Head-to-Head v Port Vale



Rotherham United welcome Port Vale to Don Valley on Saturday afternoon in what will be the fifty-sixth league meeting between the two sides. The Millers have won twenty-two games, Vale have won twenty-one games and there have been twelve draws.

Last season, the game at Don Valley was played on New Years Day and was an emphatic victory for the Millers as they won five-nil. Nicky Law opened the scoring on ten minutes with Ryan Taylor adding a second eight minutes later. Will Atkinson got number three straight after the half-time break and Ryan Taylor got his second and the Millers fourth on sixty-eight minutes. The last goal was scored with five minutes to go by Mark Randall. That day, Vale had 'keeper Stuart Tomlinson sent off just after the half hour mark for a bad challenge on Marcus Marshall just outside the box.

The season before, Vale were two-one winners at Don Valley. Craig Davies and Marc Richards put the visitors two up in three minutes in the second half with Josh Walker getting a consolation for the Millers ten minutes from time.

In the Boxing Day game at Don Valley in 2008, Drewe Broughton came off the subs bench on sixty minutes and seven minutes later scored the only goal of the game. A 'moment of madness' from defender Marc Joseph on twenty-four minutes when he tried to back pass to 'keeper David Stockdale and Kyle Perry nipped in and got the ball but as he was preparing to shoot, Joseph pulled him back giving the referee, Carl Boyeson, little option but to show a red card.
