Rotherham United welcome MK Dons this weekend for their fourth visit to the New York Stadium.

The pair last met at the New York Stadium in League One in December 2017. Chuks Aneke opened the scoring for the visitors on nine minutes then twelve minutes later scored an own goal to make it one-one with a Will Vaulks goal giving the hosts a two-one win.

Before that the Dons were last in Rotherham in August 2015 when Rob Hall opened the scoring for the visitors. Eight minutes later Matt Derbyshire equalised for the Millers but a Danny Collins own goal plus a Dean Bowditch strike gave the Dons a three-one lead going into the break. Things got worse for the hosts fifteen minutes from time when substitute Carl Baker made it four-one giving the visitors all three points.

April 2014 saw the teams meet at the New York Stadium in League One. The Millers got off to a bad start when Matthew Kennedy scored for the visitors within the first ten minutes. In the opening minutes of the second half a bit of pulling and shoving on Kieran Agard saw Brendan Galloway get a second yellow and an early bath but it was the ten-man Dons who made it two-nil on seventy-two minutes with Izale McLeod getting the goal. Seven minutes later Michael O`Connor pulled one back and the resilient Millers got a last minute equaliser courtesy of Alex Revell`s head.

In January 2008 the teams met at Millmoor when a goal eight minutes from time from Mark Wright sent the Dons away happy.

The first time the two met on Rotherham soil in the League was at Millmoor in May 2006. The game ended goalless which sent the Dons down as they`d gone into the game needing a win to stay up.

Teams That Day


Subs not used – Montgomery, Gilchrist, Monkhouse, Hoskins, Taylor

Smith (Taylor)
Morals (Small)

Subs not used – Mitchell, McClenahan, Webb

The two had met previously at Millmoor in the League Cup in January 1984 which was a one-nil win for the Millers.

The game at Stadium:mk earlier this season was a three-two victory for Rotherham. The hosts went in at half-time two up with goals from Alex Gilbey and Joe Mason but Dan Barlaser halved the deficit on sixty-six minutes and two goals from Freddie Ladapo gave the Millers all three points. Tempers flared as the game came to a close and Baily Cargill saw red after an incident involving him and the Millers bench (of which one was shown a yellow card).
