RUFC - Head-to-Head v Walsall

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Walsall
Rotherham United welcome Walsall for the seventy-third meeting between the two sides.

The first time the Saddlers were at the New York Stadium was in March 2014 in League One. Milan Lalkovic put the visitors ahead on nineteen minutes and a last grasp goal from Nicky Adams got the Millers a point. But the game was best remembered by some poor refereeing by Andy Woolmer. What looked like a definite penalty claim in the opening minute when Wes Thomas was bundled over by James Chambers wasn't even considered by the official with Walsall's goal coming from a free-kick which looked to everyone but Mr Woolmer like a fair challenge. And there were quite a few decisions that were, shall we say, iffy before Ben Pringle was impeded by Ben Purkiss with the visiting defender getting a second yellow and Walsall were down to ten men on the seventy-third minute.

Before that the Saddlers were last on Rotherham soil at Millmoor at the start of the 2005/6 season. A goal in the opening minutes from Kris Taylor gave the visitors the lead but three minutes before half-time Martin Butler equalised for the Millers. With it looking like the points would be shared Jorge Leitao got the winning goal for Walsall.

The last time Rotherham beat Walsall in Rotherham was in November 2003 when goals from Chris Swailes and Martin Butler gave the Millers a two-nil win.

The first time the two met in the league at Millmoor was in August 1923 when the Saddlers were two-nil winners.
