RUFC - Head-to-Head v Shrewsbury

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Shrewsbury
Rotherham United welcome Shrewsbury Town for their second visit to the New York Stadium this weekend.

The two have met fifty-four times before in the league with the Shrews winning twenty-five of those to the Millers' fifteen.

The first time the teams met at the New York Stadium was in League One in August 2013 in a game which Millers Manager Steve Evans wasn't impressed at all with his teams first half showing. A certain Jon Taylor gave the visitors a first-half lead on twenty-one minutes with Alex Revell levelling it up twelve minutes into the second half. Five minutes later the Shrews were back in front courtesy of Tom Bradshaw but Daniel Nardiello, who'd only been on the pitch a couple of minutes off the bench, made it two-two on sixty-nine minutes. Unfortunately, Nardiello was shown a yellow card for unsporting behaviour towards the end of the game and, as the final whistle went, he ran over to referee Dean Whitestone to argue some more and was promptly shown a second yellow.

The last time the two met at Millmoor was in November 2007 which saw a first goal for Ryan Taylor on thirty-eight minutes with Derek Holmes making sure ten minutes from time and but for some poor finishing and some heroic goalkeeping by the visitors Glynn Garner it could have been a much bigger scoreline. The game is also in the history books when, with two minutes left, Paul Hurst came off the subs bench to break the record for the most appearances for Rotherham United.

The pair have met a couple of times in the league at Don Valley - the last time in October 2011 which was a one-all draw with Lewis Grabban opening the scoring for the Millers on twenty-two minutes only for Shane Cansdell-Sherriff to equalise on the stroke of half-time.

The season before saw the Shrews beat the Millers at Don Valley with James Colling scoring twice and sandwiched in between was a Nicky Wroe spot-kick. A consolation on seventy minutes from Adam Le Fondre made it three-one to the visitors.

And February 2010 saw the pair at Don Valley in League Two when again Le Fondre was on the score sheet via a twelve minute penalty. But, the stroke of half-time saw Steven Leslie get a point for the visitors.

The first time the pair met at Millmoor was in April 1951 in the English Division Three North division when it was a two-nil win for the hosts.
