History of the Morecambe v Rotherham United fixture

Rotherham U. travel to take on Morecambe at Christie Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to break their duck against the hosts. The only previous meeting between the two sides yielded a draw.

The only previous meeting between Morecambe and Rotherham U. at was way back in the black-and-white days of November 1979, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a F.A. Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Morecambe's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Shrimps have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Rotherham U. is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the The Millers have hit 5 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Morecambe's 54 points from 39 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Rotherham U.'s total of 62 points from their 40 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.
