Millers to host Championship opposition

10 May 2013

Two friendlies set for New York...

Rotherham United can officially announce their first two pre-season friendlies ahead of the 2013/14 season, which will be against Huddersfield Town and Middlesbrough.

The games will take place at New York Stadium on Saturday 20th July (3pm), and Tuesday 23rd July (7.30pm).

The game on Saturday 20th will provide a return to New York Stadium for manager Mark Robins whose side preserved their Championship status on the final day of the season.

Robins left the Millers to join Championship side Barnsley in 2009, and now finds himself in the hot seat with the Terriers following a spell at Coventry City; he was most recently at New York to feature in Paul Warne’s testimonial.

The two sides last met in July 2011 when three goals in 10 second-half minutes ensured the visitors scored a 3-1 win over Andy Scott’s Millers side who had Chris Holroyd on the scoresheet.

Meanwhile, the Millers host another Championship club just three days later as Tony Mowbray’s ‘Boro pay their first visit to the Millers’ home for a midweek game. The former UEFA Cup finalists will arrive in Rotherham for the first time since 1995 when Steve Vickers netted the only goal in a 1-0 League Cup win at Millmoor.

Further details about ticket prices and other events in the Millers’ pre-season calendar will be announced via at a later date.
