The numbers behind Rotherham’s horrible 15 years in the FA Cup

Rotherham head to Crewe in the FA Cup first round on Saturday and they will do so hoping to stop a rotten run in the famous cup competition.

The Millers have not gone past the third round since 2002 and have barely won a game in the period since.


Here we look at their terrible record over the last 15 years in numbers.

5 – The Millers have only won five of 24 games.

9 – They have been knocked out by lower league opposition on nine occasions, including five seasons in a row.

3 – Three of those teams have been non-league outfits, in the shape of Forest Green, Luton and York.

7 – The number of times the Millers have been beaten 3-0.

2 – Stevenage and Notts County are the only higher-league opposition Rotherham have beaten, both in 2012-13.

51 – A hefty 51 goals have been shipped in 24 games.

400,000 – The estimated number of pounds the Millers missed out on after losing to Northampton in 2004 with a home tie against Manchester United waiting in the next round.

15 – The Millers have scored 15 times in 24 outings.

2 – The Millers have beaten non-league opposition twice, knocking out Wealdstone and Barrow.

0 – The Millers did not win any of their three FA Cup games at Don Valley Stadium.
