RUFC - Head-to-Head v Northampton

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Northampton
Rotherham United welcome Northampton Town to the New York Stadium for the first time since February 2013.

There was four goals in that game with three of them going the Millers way. After Ben Harding brought Mark Bradley down in the area Daniel Nardiello scored from the resulting penalty three minutes before the half-time whistle. On seventy-five minutes Ben Pringle doubled the score and four minutes later David Noble made it three-nil to the hosts. Clarke Carlisle got a consolation in the last minute of the game for the visitors.

The last time the two met in Rotherham was at Millmoor in September 2006 when David Hibbert put the home side one-up on seven minutes. But in the second half Scott McGleish scored twice to give the Cobblers an away win.

The Millers beat Northampton on 'home' soil at Don Valley on a Tuesday night in April 2010. An Adam Le Fondre penalty on sixty-five minutes gave the Millers the win but it was the three red cards that made the headlines. Craig Hinton upended Le Fondre to give away the spot kick and got his marching orders from Referee Eddie Evans and twelve minutes later the Millers Danny Harrison was deemed to have gone in a bit hard on Luke Guttridge and was sent off with Guttridge himself seeing red in the melee that followed.

The first time the two met at Millmoor was on Boxing Day 1963 when an own goal gave the Millers the win.

Of the thirty-four league games the pair have played the Millers have won fourteen to the Cobblers twelve.
