RUFC - Head-to-Head v The Spireites

RUFC - Head-to-Head v The Spireites
Rotherham United make the short journey into Derbyshire and to the B2Net Stadium to take on Chesterfield who came down from League One last season.

This will be the fifty-fifth meeting between the two, with the Spireites way out in front on wins having thirty-eight to the Millers' sixteen.

The only time the two sides have met at the B2Net was a disastrous Friday evening for the Millers in March last year when they took a five-nil beating in front of the Sky camera's. Dean Holden, Craig Davies and Jack Lester put the home side three-up going into the break with Jack Lester getting his hat-trick by the eighty-third minute. It led Manager Ronnie Moore to come out with the 'If I'd had a gun I'd have shot them' and four days later he was 'relieved of his duties'.

The last time the Millers won on Chesterfield soil was in January 2010 at Saltergate when a Tom Pope goal in the final minute of the game gave the Millers all three points.
