RUFC - Head-to-Head v Wigan

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Wigan
Rotherham United's next visitors to the New York Stadium are Wigan Athletic which will be the twenty-seventh league meeting between the pair.

The last time Wigan were at the New York Stadium was on Boxing Day last year. The Millers didn't get many wins last season but this was a three-two win for the hosts. Going into half-time Rotherham found themselves three up with goals from Aimen Belaid, Danny Ward and a Dan Burn own goal. Yanic Wildschut pulled one back on fifty-one minutes and when a second Wigan goal from Jordi Gomez went in on seventy-nine minutes it made the last ten minutes of the game a little uncomfortable for the Millers fans!

The season before two goals from Jermaine Pennant in five first-half minutes saw the visitors two-up in thirty-six minutes. Matt Derbyshire pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time but Wigan managed to hold onto their lead to get all three points. Kirk Broadfoot of the Millers and Wigan's James McClean were booked on the day.

The first time the teams met in Rotherham was at Millmoor in May 1984 which was a four-one win for the Millers with two goals from Tony Simmons and one each from Alan Birch and John Dungworth which was in the Old Division Three league.

The last time the two met at Millmoor was in the Championship in January 2005. A goal on seventy minutes from Gary Teale gave the visitors the lead with a Jason Roberts goal on the stroke of full-time doubling the score and giving all three points to Wigan.

In September 1990 Rotherham beat Wigan at Millmoor in the Old Division Three. The score was 5-1 with Stewart Evans getting two of the goals that afternoon and Des Hazel and Clive Mendonca also scoring plus an own goal.
