A History of Reading V Rotherham Clashes

Last updated : 24 August 2003 By Rob Cooper
The Royals have a fantastic home record against the Millers, having won ten of sixteen encounters between the sides in Reading. The South Yorkshire side have won in Reading just once, and that was way back in May 1977.

Overall, the two sides have met thirty-two times in their respective histories. Reading have triumphed on fourteen occasions, Rotherham have won seven times whilst the remaining eleven games ended all square.

Last season Reading recorded an early season 0-0 draw at Millmoor. Both sides missed an embarrassingly wide range of chances. Former Rotherham captain Kevin Watson, now at Reading, was most guilty, missing an open goal from a yard out. You Can Read Our Match Report From That Game Here.

In the return fixture at the Madejski Stadium in the spring the Royals brilliantly triumphed 3-0. James Harper, Andy Hughes and Nicky Forster all powered home wonderstrikes in the glorious spring sunshine. A repeat of that tomorrow with the Sky Cameras in town would go down very well.

Three seasons ago now Rotherham beat the Royals to promotion to Division One right at the last, an end of season finish that will still play on many of the player's minds. Indeed, Reading took the maximum six points off the Millers that season but still missed out on promotion
