RUFC - Head-to-Head v Gillingham

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Gillingham
Rotherham United welcome top placed Gillingham to the New York Stadium on Saturday. The teams have met fifty-two times before in the league with the Gills having won twenty-one of those games and the Millers sixteen.


The last time the two met on Rotherham soil was in April 2007 at Millmoor. Delroy Facey opened the scoring for the Millers on seven minutes but Felix Bastians and Andrew Crofts scored for the visitors to give them a two-one lead going into half-time. Fifteen minutes from the end Chris O'Grady equalised and Marc Newsham got the winner for the home side four minutes from time.

The game last season at Don Valley was a three-nil win for the Millers with the goals coming from Danny Harrison, Lewis Grabban and Gareth Evans in the second half.

The last time the Millers lost to Gillingham at 'home' was at Don Valley in April 201l when a goal ten minutes from the end from Andy Barcham was enough to give the visitors all three points.

The last time the Gills won on Rotherham soil was at Millmoor in March 2005. Michael Flynn scored the first goal for Gillingham on twenty-six minutes with Martin Butler equalising for the Millers ten minutes into the second half. But goals from Mamady Sidbe on seventy-two minutes and Darius Henderson ten minutes later gave the Gills the win.

The first time the two met was at Millmoor in August 1968 in the Old Division Three when a goal from Jim Storrie gave the Millers the win.
