RUFC - Head-to-Head v Southend

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Southend
Rotherham United make the long journey to Southend on Friday and the Millers will be out for revenge for the game at Don Valley earlier in the season, which saw them lose four-nil.

This will be the twenty-fourth meeting between the sides with the Shrimpers winning ten of those games to the Millers seven.

The last time the Millers won at Roots Hall was in January 2000. Leo Fortune-West opened the scoring on twenty-six minutes only for former Miller, Nigel Pepper, who was on loan from Aberdeen, to equalise ten minutes later. The Millers went back into the lead five minutes from half-time with Fortune-West's second goal, which also turned out to be the winner.

Teams that day were

Shrimpers

Prudhoe
Booty
Roget (Newman)
Coleman
Jones
Beard
Tinkler (Campbell)
Pepper (Cross)
Houghton
Tolson
Carruthers

Subs not used - Capleton, Maher

Millers

Fortune-West

Steve Bennett was the referee that day and there was a crowd of 4,788.

Last season at Roots Hall a Blair Sturrock goal after just five minutes was enough to give the home side all three points.
