Rotherham United make the trip down south to Griffin Park to take on Brentford for their next league game of the season.

The teams last met at Griffin Park on the first day of the 2018/19 season and it wasn’t the way the Millers wanted to start their life in the Championship. The game was just four minutes old when Neal Maupay put the hosts in front with Sergio Canos making it two-nil just before half-time, although how it was still only one-nil until then is anyone’s guess. Ollie Watkins crashed a shot onto the underside of the crossbar and saw it go in three minutes into the second half and with a second from Maupay and another from Lewis MacLeod it was five-nil. Will Vaulks got a consolation in time added on to give the Millers following something to cheer about, although most of them had left by then.

October 2013 was the last time the Millers won at Griffin Park which was a League One game when a fourteenth minute Mark Bradley goal saw Rotherham climb up to sixth place in the table. Referee Oliver Langford had a very busy afternoon that day showing seven yellow cards – Alan McCormack for the Bees and the Millers’ Mark Bradley, Lee Frecklington, Rob Milsom, Ben Pringle, Alex Revell and Kieran Agard.

The Millers best away win at Brentford was probably on 11 November 2000 when three first half goals for the visitors saw them take all three points. Stewart Talbot opened the scoring on three minutes and scored another two minutes before the half ended with Alan Lee getting one in between. It was also the battle of the two Scott brothers – Rob being the winner against Andy that day.

The first time the Millers met on Brentford soil was in the Old Division Two in August 1951 with the Bees winning the game two-nil.

In December when the Bees came to the New York Stadium Marcus Forrs put the visitors ahead on the fifty-seventh minute and after Mikel Miller had been sent off for bringing down Sergi Canos, Ivan Toney scored their second from the penalty spot eight minutes from time.
