RUFC - Head-to-Head v Crawley Town

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Crawley Town
Rotherham United make their first ever visit to the Broadfield Stadium on Saturday to take on Crawley Town, who are in their first season in the Football League.

This will be the teams' second meeting, the first ending with a win, at Don Valley for Crawley in November. Brett Williams had put the Millers one-up on twenty minutes but Tyrone Barnett and Josh Simpson scored in the second half for the Reds to give the visitors all three points.

Broadfield Stadium was opened in 1997, has a capacity of 4,996 and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. The Millers fans will be housed in the North Stand which can accommodate 1,600 people.

Manager, Steve Evans, took over at Crawley in May 2009 and, is said, to have verbally accepted a new three year deal with the Red Devils in February last year.

Last season, Crawley reached the fifth round of the FA Cup, beating Swindon Town, Derby County and Torquay United before being drawn against  Manchester United at Old Trafford in the next round. Crawley lost this match 1-0 but earned over £1 million for this match alone. The season ended with them getting promotion to the Football League.
