Rotherham United make the hop-skip-and-a-jump journey to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United on Saturday.

The last time the teams met at Bramall Lane was in League One in April 2014. With the Blades getting ready to play in the semi-final of the FA Cup it was a young side put out by then Manager Nigel Clough. With it looking like the Millers would earn a point making it seventeen games without defeat Craig Morgan was adjudged to have pushed over Harry Maguire in the penalty area and Ben Davies scored the resulting spot-kick.

February 2005 saw the pair meet at Bramall Lane in the Championship when the only goal of the game was scored by Paul Shaw for the home side six minutes into the second half.

The last time the Millers won at Bramall Lane was in September 1980 in the Old Division Three. The game ended two-one to Rotherham with Richard Finney and Mark Rhodes scoring the Millers goals.

The first meeting between the sides at Bramall Lane was in October 1951 when both were in the Old Division Two. The game was a one-nil win for the home side in front of 52,199 fans.

The game at the New York Stadium earlier this season was a two-all draw. Mark Duffy put the visitors in front on eight minutes with Jon Taylor equalising on sixty-six minutes. With five minutes to go Chris Basham gave the Blades back the lead but a late goal from Jamie Proctor ensured the Millers got a point from the game.
