Rotherham United make the journey to Kenilworth Town to take on Luton Town in the league for the first time since March 2009.

The last time the pair met on Luton soil was in League Two in the season that saw both teams begin on minus points. Reuben Reid gave the visitors the lead on eleven minutes when he beat Luton ‘keeper Dean Brill to the ball with Drewe Broughton making it two twenty-six minutes later. Chris Martin halved the deficit three minutes before half-time but Danny Harrison gave the Millers back their two goal cushion eight minutes into the second half. A twenty-five yard strike from Asa Hall made it three-two but substitute Mark Hudson made it four-two with minutes to go.

April 2001 saw the Millers win at Kenilworth Road too with a seventy-sixth minute Chris Sedgwick goal with Luton’s last home league win against Rotherham coming in August 1996 when Mitchell Thomas gave the hosts all three points on the fifty-eighth minute.

Luton did beat the Millers on their home soil in the FA Cup in December 2008 after drawing two-all at Don Valley. Adam Newton and Alan White got first half goals for the Hatters with a third goal from Claude Gnakpa giving the non-league side the win to send them into a next round tie away at Southampton.

The game at the New York Stadium between the two in November saw the only goal of the game scored by James Collins on seventy minutes for the Hatters.
