RUFC - Head-to-Head v The Pilgrims



Rotherham United and Plymouth Argyle have met sixty-five times in the league in the past, the first time being in the 1952/53 season when Argyle won both games. The first game at Plymouth ended 4-3 to the home side with Rawson getting two and Gladstone Guest the other for the Millers. In the return game at Millmoor, Guest and Rawson scored again but the visitors won 3-2.

The last time Plymouth visited Rotherham was in the Championship at Millmoor, in October 2004. The only goal of the game was scored on sixty-five minutes by Mattias Doumbe for Plymouth. Just over five thousand fans were at Millmoor that day to see former Millers favourite, Bobby Williamson, win there as a manager, in what was described as a 'guts rather than glory' game.
