Rotherham United are on the road making the journey to Ewood Park to take on Blackburn Rovers for their next game.

The last time the pair met at Ewood Park was in November 2018 with Millers’ ‘keeper Marek Rodak certainly earning his keep bringing off good saves all afternoon. Rotherham came close to getting their first away win of the season when Michael Smith headed them in front with fifteen minutes left but Bradley Dack finally got the better of Rodak turning home at the near post on the eighty-first minute to make it one-all.

A game at Ewood Park between the two in 2016 saw six goals. Danny Ward slotted home on twelve minutes to put the Millers in front but before half-time Rovers were two-one up with goals from Craig Conway and Marvin Emnes. A minute into the second half Ben Marshall made it three-one for the hosts with Ward making things interesting on eighty-three minutes scoring his and the Millers second. But a Sam Gallagher goal in time added on made it four-two to Blackburn giving them all three points.It was following this defeat that Millers Chairman Tony Stewart decided enough was enough and Alan Stubbs was shown the door.

A cold Friday night in December 2015 saw the pair meet the season before at Blackburn when a very good header from Millers loanee Luke Hyam was the only goal of the game – unfortunately he headed past his own ‘keeper to give Rovers all three points. Kirk Broadfoot was the only yellow card shown that night.

The last time Rotherham won on Birmingham soil was in September 1979 when both sides were in Division Three. Dave Gwyther scored two with another goal coming from Richard Finney giving the Millers a three-nil win.
