Rotherham United welcome Birmingham City to the New York Stadium for their next game in the Championship.

The last time the Blues were on Rotherham soil was on Easter Monday 2019 which saw the Millers go into half-time with a one-nil lead thanks to a Matt Crooks goal on the twenty-second minute. But with City fighting to stay in the Championship they came out fighting in the second half and goals from Jacques Maghoma, Jota and Kerim Mrabti gave them a three-one win and secured their Championship status.

The last time the Blues played at Millmoor was in April 2002. Darren Garner put the the hosts in front on thirty-six minutes but two minutes later Martin Grainger equalised. Fourteen minutes into the second half Martin McIntosh put the Millers back in front but with twenty minutes to go an own goal from Chris Beech gave City a point to take home. Mark Clattenburg was the referee that day and the only card he showed was a yellow to the visitors’ Damien Johnson.

We have to go back to October 1989 to see a last home win against Birmingham for the Millers. A hat-trick from Bobby Williamson plus goals from John Buckley and Martin Scott gave Rotherham a five-one victory.

The first time the two teams met at Millmoor was in November 1919 which was a three-nil victory for the visitors. Short scored the first goal for Birmingham with Millard getting two more

The game in the first month of the new season at the St Andrew’s Stadium was a one-all draw with both goals coming from the penalty spot in the final minutes of the game. Jeremie Bela clipped the heels of Ben Wiles with three minutes to go in the area and up stepped Kieran Sadlier to put Rotherham in front but a foul on Jon Toral in the last minute from Billy Jones saw Bela equalise again from the spot.
