The next game at the New York Stadium sees Rotherham United welcome Watford for just their second visit to the ground.

The first time the Hornets were here was in August 2014 and while Paul Taylor, on loan from Ipswich, and Lee Frecklington missed chances for the hosts it was Watford who broke the deadlock with fifteen minutes to go when Lloyd Dyer took advantage of a parried save from Adam Collins to slot home then evaded his cheering team mates to rush over to the bench and appear to have words with his manager Beppe Sannino. Gianni Munari made it two-nil to the visitors on eighty-seven minutes.

For the game before this that the two met on Rotherham soil we have to go back to April 2005 when a goal just after the half-hour mark from Heider Helguson gave the visitors all three points.

The last time the Millers beat Watford at Millmoor was in November 2002 when both teams were in League One. Martin McIntosh opened the scoring for the hosts four minutes before half-time but Dominic Foley equalised on the hour mark. Richie Barker got the winner for the Millers seven minutes later.

Two goals in the first fifteen minutes of the game at Vicarage Road in December saw the hosts get all three points the opener on four minutes from Christian Kabasele and the second on the quarter of an hour mark from Troy Deeney.
