RUFC - Head-to-Head v QPR

RUFC - Head-to-Head v QPR
Rotherham United travel down to London to take on Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road for the fourteenth league meeting between the two.

Last season this fixture was in August and saw six goals. Tjaronn Chery scored three minutes before half-time and again five minutes into the second half with Charlie Austin making it three-nil thirteen minutes later. Jonson Clarke-Harris and Tom Thorpe brought it back to three-two but a last minute penalty from Austin gave the hosts a win. Austin and Lewis Buxton of the Millers saw yellow on the afternoon.

The time before the two met at Loftus Road was in August 2004 when Gareth Ainsworth opened the scoring for the hosts on five minutes but ten minutes later the Millers were level after a goal from Paul Shaw.

The time before that when the sides met in London was when both were in the old Division Two in March 1983 which saw QPR win four-nil - that was also the season the two had met in the League Cup which saw the Millers win.

The only time the Millers have won at Loftus Road was the first time the sides had met which was in the 1951/2 season when goals from Jack Selkirk, Jack Shaw and Peter Wragg gave the Millers a three-two victory.

The game earlier this season at the New York Season was a win for the Millers with the only goal of the game coming from Izzy Brown on twenty-four minutes.
