RUFC - Head-to-Head v Doncaster

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Doncaster
Rotherham United make the short journey to the Keepmoat Stadium for this dinner time kick-off when they take on Doncaster Rovers in a live TV game.

The teams have met in the league seventy-four times in the past with the Millers winning thirty-two to Rovers' twenty-three.

Rotherham have only travelled once before to The Keepmoat for a league game which was in January 2007 in League One. Richie Partridge gave the visitors the lead on ten minutes but two minutes later Paul Heffernan equalised. Two minutes into the second half Graeme Lee put Rovers in front with Heffernan getting his second and the hosts third just before the hour mark. A goal on seventy-one minutes from Martin Woods made it three-two which is how the game ended.

The last time the Millers beat Rovers on Doncaster soil was a cold Friday evening back in December 1997 at Belle Vue. An own goal by Ian Gore gave the visitors a half-time lead with further goals coming in the second half from Lee Glover and Scott Taylor.

There have been a few goals scored between the teams in the past but the biggest margin that Rotherham won at Belle Vue was in February 1955. Jack Grainger scored twice and goals from Gladstone Guest and youngster Anthony Reeson saw the Millers get a four-nil victory.

And the first time out at Belle Vue saw loanee John Pearson from Leeds get the only goal of the game for Rotherham County.

The Millers and Rovers have met at The Keepmoat in a pre-season friendly in August 2014. The Millers won two-one with Matt Derbyshire and Ryan Hall scoring. Curtis Main got a consolation for the home side. The Millers also saw two goals chalked off for off-side, one in each half.
