What records can Rotherham achieve by winning their last two regular games?

With two games of the regular season remaining, Rotherham have a shot at a place on the podium in the club’s history books.

If they can win their remaining two games – away at Plymouth and at home to Blackpool – they will finish the 46-game campaign on an impressive 82 points.

And that would be the joint-third highest ever tally in the club’s long history.

 

Ronnie Moore’s brilliant 2000-01 side hold the record with 91 set on their way to a memorable Division One promotion, while Steve Evans’ 2013-14 team finished fourth with 84 and went up through the play-offs.

The 1988-89 team, managed by Billy McEwan, also notched 82 and they finished champions of Division Four.

Even if the Millers lose their last two games they will still be seventh on the all-time list of points.


Three points against Blackpool next Saturday is guaranteed to give Paul Warne a little sidenote in the record books.

By beating Gary Bowyer’s side it would give them 15 home wins in the season, the most in any of the six years at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

 

The League Two promotion winning team in 2012-13, along with Warne’s side, have the most with 14.

If they were to end on 15 home wins it would be the most since the side Warne played in in 2000-01 and fourth on the overall list.

They only need one more goal at home for the most in a season at NYS, which will be 45, again the most in a campaign since Moore’s all conquering side.
