RUFC - Head-to-Head v Exeter
Rotherham United entertain Exeter City on Saturday at the New York Stadium which will be the thirty-second meeting between the two sides.

The last time the Grecians were on Rotherham soil was in January 2000 at Millmoor. Leo Fortune-West scored two goals in the first seven minutes of the game with Paul Warne making it three-nil five minutes later. City's Darren Rowbotham came on for Dewhurst for the start of the second half and was sent off by Referee Pearson on fifty-seven minutes. Brian Wilsterman scored a fourth goal for the Millers eight minutes before the end of the game with Warney getting his second four minutes later to make it five-nil.

The last time the two met at the Millers 'home' was May 2009 at Don Valley. The only goal of the game was from the visitors Richard Logan which saw the Grecians promoted to League One in second place behind Brentford. Dale Tonge saw red on seventy-five minutes for a foul on Craig McAllister which resulted in a penalty taken by Stuart Fleetwood and well saved by Andy Warrington in the Millers goal.

Earlier in the season the Millers travelled to St James' Park and a goal on forty-two minutes from Ian Sharps saw the Millers get all three points. In the final minutes of the game Mitch Rose, who had only been on the pitch four minutes, saw red after momentum appeared to take him into Aaron Dawson who ended up on the floor.
