2008/09 League Cup Run

2008/09 League Cup Run

As anyone associated with Rotherham United knows, they very rarely fare well in cup competitions. Before 2008/09, they had not reached the fourth round of a cup competition since 2002/03. This season's League Cup started with a tense derby with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough. The game finished 2-2 after extra-time with Reuban Reid grabbing an 119th minute equaliser. The Millers won it 5-3 on penalties to earn the bragging rights and a place in the 2nd Round. Next up was Championship side Wolves. The Millers fought their way to a shootout before going through 4-3 on penalties. Their great run continued as they beat Southampton 3-1 in Round Three with goals from Nick Fenton, Danny Harrison and Drewe Broughton. Sadly they exited the competition in the fourth round against Premier League side Stoke City. Goals from Glenn Whelan and Danny Pugh at the Britannia Stadium was enough for a 2-0 victory. The Millers were knocked out in the 4th round, but this run was a big highlight of the 2008/09 season.
