Rotherham United welcome Bolton Wanderers for their fifth league visit to the New York Stadium, the last one being in September 2019. The visitors went ahead on just four minutes with a goal from Thibaud Verlinden with Ben Wiles equalising ten minutes later. Freddie Ladapo and Carlton Morris made it three-one before the break with Ladapo and Morris scoring in the first ten minutes of the second half and a goal from Jake Hastie making it six-one on the sixty-fifth minute.

October 2018 also saw Wanderers in Rotherham in a game seeing Will Vaulks score on fifty-seven minutes putting the hosts in front but Bolton got an equaliser with six minutes to go from Christian Doidge to give the visitors a point.

Boxing Day 2015 also saw Bolton at the New York Stadium which the Millers won four-nil with all the goals coming in the second half from Grant Ward, Danny Ward, Joe Newell and Jonson Clarke-Harris.

Bolton’s first visit to the New York Stadium was in January 2015 with the Millers taking a three-nil lead into half-time courtesy of Ben Pringle, Conor Sammon and Paul Green. Matt Derbyshire made it four-nil twelve minutes into the second half with Liam Trotter and Matt Mills pulling two back for the visitors to make it an interesting last quarter of an hour. Just two yellow cards were shown on the evening one being to Pringle and the other to Wanderers sub Jay Spearing.

The last time the pair met at Millmoor was in September 1992 when both teams were in League Two. The game was a two-one win for the hosts with Shaun Goater getting both goals for the Millers and Phil Brown scoring for the visitors.

Wanderers last beat the Millers on Rotherham soil on a Tuesday night in August 1966 when the only goal of the game was scored by the visitors in the old Division Two game.

The first ever meeting between the pair at Millmoor was a goalless draw in April 1965.

Earlier this season the game at the University of Bolton Stadium saw Ben Wiles score twice in three first half minutes to give Rotherham all three points.
