RUFC - Head-to-Head v Oxford

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Oxford
Rotherham United travel to the Kassam Stadium tomorrow to take on an Oxford side who are taking up the last position in the play-off places, which is what the Millers are aiming for.

The U`s and Millers have met twenty-one times in the league in the past with Oxford winning eight to the Millers` seven.

Last season at the Kassam, the Millers slipped to their fifth consecutive away defeat after going behind to a Simon Heslop goal on seventeen minutes. Nicky Law equalised on thirty-six minutes but tragedy struck for the Millers midway through the second half when Callum Kennedy saw red for pulling down Steve MacLean which also gave away the penalty which MacLean himself took and scored from.

The last time the Millers won at Oxford, which was at their old Manor Ground, was way back in August 1977. It was the first league game of the season and Jimmy Goodfellow, Trevor Phillips and Tommy Spencer gave the Millers a three-two victory.

There have been a few close games between the teams in the past - one that sticks out was in March 2001 at the Manor Ground. Rob Quinn put the home side in the lead on six minutes only for Mark Robins to equalise for the Millers eighteen minutes later. Three minutes after that Manny Omoyinmi regained the lead for the U`s and scored his second and their third on fifty-nine minutes. Guy Branston made it three-two just after the hour mark only for a certain Andy Scott to score for the home side to make it four-two. On eighty minutes Alan Lee popped a third in for the Millers to make it an exciting last ten minutes.
