RUFC - Head-to-Head v Plymouth
Rotherham United welcome Plymouth Argyle for their first visit to the New York Stadium on Saturday which will be the sixty-seventh meeting between the two sides.

The first season the two met was in the 1952/3 season where Argyle won both games. Firstly at four-three at Plymouth then three-two at Millmoor.

The last time Plymouth were on Rotherham soil was in October 2004 when the sides were in the Championship. 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.

The last time the Millers beat the Pilgrims in Rotherham was on Bonfire Night 1994 when Shaun Goater, with two goals, and Imre Varadi were on the score sheet with Craig Skinner getting a consolation for the visitors.

At Don Valley, last season, a penalty from Lewis Grabban on seventy minutes gave the Millers all three points.
