RUFC - Head-to-Head v Bristol Rovers



Rotherham United travel to the Memorial Stadium on Saturday to take on Bristol Rovers who have just got a new manager in John Ward.

The sides have met fifty-two times in the League in the past with Rovers winning twenty of those games to the Millers' eighteen.

Last season Rovers won both the game at Don Valley and the game at the Memorial Stadium. The game at Don Valley was won in the final minute of the game with a Andy Dorman goal. Earlier in the season the Millers played at the Memorial ground on a Friday night and were three-down in the first thirty-two minutes when Scott McGleish wrong footed Andy Warrington in the Millers' goal and scored the opening goal. On twenty-nine minutes Johnny Mullins was judged to have challenged Scott Rendell unfairly in the area and McGleish put away the following penalty. Three minutes later Rovers went three up with a goal from Cian Bolger with Jason Taylor scoring for the Millers five minutes later to make it three-two going into half-time. Eight minutes into the second half Danny Schofield made it three-two and with the Millers on top the unthinkable happened when Guy Branston, making his debut for the visitors, saw a red card for a two-footed tackle on Stuart Campbell and from the resulting free-kick Lee Brown scored the home sides fourth goal. Joe Anyinsah came off the bench on the eightieth minutes and eight minutes later made it five-two.

The last time the Millers won at the Memorial Ground was in May 1997. Trevor Berry opened the scoring for the visitors on twenty-one minutes but an own goal from Mark Monnington fourteen minutes later made it one-all. And with it looking like it would be a point a-piece, with just three minutes to go Darren Garner made it two-one for the Millers.
