RUFC - Head-to-Head v The Tigers



Rotherham United are making their first trip to the KC Stadium to take on Championship side, Hull City, in the first round of the Capital One League Cup.

The only time the two have ever met in the League Cup before was in the 1999/2000 season when the Millers and Tigers were, as this season, drawn in the first round - although, in those days, it was over two legs. City beat the Millers one-nil at Millmoor when John Eyre scored after eighteen minutes and two weeks later they won at Boothferry when goals from Colin Alcide and David Brown gave the home side a two-nil victory.

The Millers and Tigers have met one other time in the League Cup in August 1992, once again, over two legs. The first game was at Boothferry when Graeme Atkinson and Dave Hockaday scored for the home side and Mark Todd and Ian Banks got goals for the Millers so it ended two-all. The next leg at Millmoor was won with a Mark Todd penalty to give the Millers a three-two victory on aggregate.

In all League and Cup games between Rotherham and Hull the Millers have won twenty-eight times to the Tigers' twenty-six with there being twenty draws between the two sides.
