Rotherham 1 Nottingham Forest 1, 18th November 2006. Near neighbours Rotherham and Forest are divided by politics as well as sport. During the 1984-85 miners strike, South Yorkshire was solidly behind the industrial action, while Nottinghamshire miners were less convinced. The insult 'Scab' is still heard in this fixture. Forest eequalised in the 88th minute. They finished the season in fourth, losing in the play off semi final to Yoevil Town. With a 0-2 lead from the away leg Forest conceded an 82nd minute equaliser, before losing 2-5 after extra time.
