How many more consecutive games have Rotherham got to score in to break the club record?

Rotherham have scored in 26 successive games – an impressive statistic which has allowed them to mount a promotion challenge in League One.

Not since their 2-0 loss at Blackburn in September have the Millers failed to find the back of the net in all competitions, including the FA Cup and Checkatrade Trophy.

 

But they have still got some work to do if they are to turn this sequence into a club record.

Rotherham scored in 30 consecutive games in the 1950s

The longest number of consecutive games where they found the net is 30 way back in the 1950s.

Andy Smailes’ second-tier side bagged in the final six matches of the 1953-54 campaign and followed it up with scoring in their opening 24 games of the next campaign.

They were eventually held to a goalless draw by Birmingham, meaning they went from 3 April 1954 to 1 January 1955 scoring in every game.

That was over the course of two seasons, but the current Millers crop are still short of the record for scoring in consecutive games in a single season, though only just.

Happy Monday Millers fans! #rufc #millers #ForeverTogetherForeverProud #utm

In 1963-64, Danny Williams’ side found the net in 28 successive outings from 31 August to January 11 when they drew 0-0 with Swindon at Millmoor.

So, if Paul Warne’s men score against Doncaster and Gillingham they will equal that record and then if they also bag at home to Rochdale the single-season record will be theirs.

If goals are also then scored against MK Dons and Northampton the overall record will also belong to them.
