History of the Rotherham United v Bradford City fixture

Bradford City face a trip to Rotherham United at Millmoor Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bantams will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 17 and win only 7 of the 29 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in August 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Rotherham United's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While The Millers have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Bradford City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 2 goals have been registered in this time, with 4 leaked at the wrong end.

Rotherham U. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 34 games have yielded only 25 points. Bradford City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 38 points from 34 matches.
