Rotherham United welcome Blackpool for their third league visit to the New York Stadium with the last time being the final game of the 2017/18 season when a Will Vaulks goal on fifty-eight minutes gave the Millers all three points seeing them finish in fourth place to go into the play-offs.
Blackpool’s first visit to the New York Stadium came in November 2014 when Jordan Bowery put the Millers in front on seventy-eight minutes but a goal from Steve Davies seven minutes later gave the visitors a point.
The last time the pair met at Millmoor was a Tuesday night in what was a re-arranged game in March 2007. With the Millers in the relegation zone Chris O’Grady scored the only goal of the game to give them a bit of a lift but it still left them seven points adrift.

The game at Millmoor the season before was a four-nil win for the hosts. John Mullin opened the scoring five minutes before half time with a Deon Burton second-half hat-trick making it four-nil.
The last time Blackpool were winners on Rotherham soil was in August 1996. A goal on the verge of half-time from Andy Hayward gave the Millers the lead but two minutes into the second half Lee Philpott equalised. Andy Preece got the winner for the visitors on the seventy-ninth minute. Andy Roscoe and Mark Monington were booked that evening.
The first ever game between the two at Millmoor was in the Old Division Two on Easter Monday. Blackpool won the game two-one with Rotherham’s goal coming from Albert Pape.
The game at Bloomfield Road in October was a two-one win for the Millers. Michael Smith and Clark Robertson scored for the visitors before a last minute Armand Gnandullet penalty gave Blackpool a consolation.
