History of the Reading v Rotherham United fixture

Reading prepare to entertain Rotherham United at Madjeski Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Royals are clearly on top, winning 12 and drawing 6 of the 19 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Madjeski Stadium was less than a year ago, in August 2003, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Division One match.
