RUFC - Head-to-Head v Brentford

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Brentford
Rotherham United make the trip to Griffin Park this afternoon when they take on Brentford.

The game last season away at Brentford saw Alan Judge open the scoring on just two minutes but a Joe Mattock goal just after half-time equalised for the visitors. But ten minutes later Judge struck again winning the game for the Bees. Alan McCormack and Toumani Diagouraga for the hosts and Rotherham's Richie Smallwood and Manu Ledesma saw yellow during the game.

The season before the Millers made the journey in January and a Stuart Dallas goal on fifty-seven minutes gave the hosts all three points. Adam Hammill and Richie Smallwood saw yellow cards that day.

The last time the Millers won at Griffin Park was in League One in October 2013 thanks to a Mark Bradley goal on fourteen minutes. Referee Oliver Langford had a very busy afternoon that day showing seven yellow cards - Alan McCormack for the Bees and the Millers' Mark Bradley, Lee Frecklington, Rob Milsom, Ben Pringle, Alex Revell and Kieran Agard.

The Millers best away win at Brentford was probably on 11 November 2000 when three first half goals for the visitors saw them take all three points. Stewart Talbot opened the scoring on three minutes and scored another two minutes before the half ended with Alan Lee getting one in between. It was also the battle of the two Scott brothers - Rob being the winner against Andy that day.

The first time the Millers met on Brentford soil was in the Old Division Two in August 1951 with the Bees winning the game two-nil.

Earlier this season the game at the New York Stadium saw Alan Stubbs only win of his short lived career in charge of the Millers when the only goal of the game on thirty-two minutes from Danny Ward gave Rotherham all three points.
