RUFC - Head-to-Head v Chesterfield

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Chesterfield
Rotherham United welcome near neighbours Chesterfield for their first visit to the New York Stadium this Saturday.

The Millers and Spireites have met sixty-five times in the league in the past with Chesterfield having the majority of wins.

The last time the two met on Rotherham soil was at Millmoor in March 2008 when goals from Peter Holmes and Marc Joseph gave the Millers a two-nil lead going into the half-time break. Jamie Ward scored fifteen minutes before the end but the Millers held on to get all the points.

At Don Valley the Millers won three out of three games - 21st March 2009 when Reuben Reid (2) and Pablo Mills scored in the three-nil win and Drew Talbot was sent off for the visitors. The following season the Millers won three-one after James Lowry put the Spireites in the lead in the first half with a penalty. Danny Harrison, Adam Le Fondre and Kevin Ellison scored in the second half to give the Millers the win. A goal from Le Fondre in the fifty-third minute was enough to give the Millers the win last season.

The last time Chesterfield won at Millmoor was in January 2007 when Caleb Folan scored the only goal of the game just after the half-hour mark giving the visitors all three points.

At the Proact stadium earlier this season goals from Jordan Bowery for Chesterfield and Kayode Odejayi six minutes into the second half gave both sides a share of the points.
