Rotherham’s 27-game record-equalling winless run on the road in numbers

Rotherham’s 2-1 loss at Peterborough on Saturday extended their miserable record on the road, equalling a post-war club-record 27 league games without an away win.

That was last done in the 1977-78/78-79 seasons under Jimmy McGuigan and will be surpassed if the Millers fail to win at Portsmouth on September 3.


Here’s a look at that run of 27 games in numbers.

3 – The number of seasons the run has gone across, taking in the last two games of 2015-16, all of 2016-17 and the opening two trips in 2017-18.

3 – The number of points picked up during the 27 games, with draws at Wolves in 2015-16 and Ipswich and Preston last season, compared to 12 in the late 70s run.

4 – The number of managers who have been at the helm during the run as Neil Warnock, Alan Stubbs, Kenny Jackett and Paul Warne have all been in charge.

5 – The number of times the Millers have scored more than one goal.

8 – The number of times the Millers have conceded four or more goals.

9 – The number of penalties conceded.

18 – The number of goals conceded in the last 15 minutes of games, equating to six points dropped.

19 – The number of times Rotherham have found the back of the net.


24 – The number of defeats suffered.

73 – The number of goals conceded, averaging at 2.7 per game.

498 – The number of days between their last away win at MK Dons in April 2016 and equalling the 27-game drought at Peterborough.
