Rotherham United welcome Preston North End for their sixth visit to the New York Stadium the last one being on New Years Day 2019.

Probably against run of play a fantastic Will Vaulks free-kick gave the Millers the lead in that game in time added on in the first half with an excellent Joe Newell cross finding the head of Michael Smith to make it two-nil on seventy-six minutes. Two minutes later Preston got themselves back into the game with a goal from Lukas Nmecha but the Millers hung on to get the three points and climb out of the relegation zone.

Bonfire Night 2016 was the time before that that the pair met in Rotherham which saw Jordan Hugill and Callum Robinson put the visitors two -up in the first half with Richard Wood scoring on seventy-one minutes to half the deficit. But ten minutes later Marnick Vermijl made it three-one to Preston.

The game at the New York Stadium the season before ended goalless with Referee David Coote booking six players – Joe Mattock, Greg Halford, Joe Newell and Jonson Clarke-Harris of the Millers and Preston’s Joe Garner and Marnick Vermijl.

Before that was the second leg of the League One Play-Off’s in May 2014 when goals from Wes Thomas, Lee Frecklington and Kieran Agard after Paul Gallagher gave the visitors the lead saw the Millers book their place in the Wembley Play-Off Final. The first leg at Deepdale was a one-all draw with Alex Revell opening the scoring for Rotherham and Joe Garner equalising a few minutes into the second half.

The last time Preston beat the Millers at Millmoor was in April 2005. Will Hoskins put the hosts in front on the twenty-third minutes but second half goals from former Miller Chris Sedgwick and Youl Mawene gave all three points to the visitors that Saturday afternoon.

The first time the pair met at Millmoor was in the 1961/2 season and was a two-two draw with the Millers goals coming from Ken Houghton and Don Weston.
