Rotherham United welcome Ipswich Town back for their fifth visit to the New York Stadium in what is top v second in the league.

The pair last met here in August 2018 with the only goal coming in the final minute of the game from Michael Smith to give the hosts all three points.

The time before that on Rotherham soil was in April 2017 when a goal ten minutes from time from Tom Adeyemi gave again gave the Millers the win.

November 2015 saw the Tractor Boys at the New York Stadium in a game that saw seven goals. Brett Pitman, Jonathon Douglas and Daryl Murphy gave the visitors a three-nil lead going into the half-time break and it got worse four minutes into the second half when Murphy scored again. Brandon Barker and Matt Derbyshire halved the deficit but Murphy got his hat-trick on seventy-two minutes to make it five-two to Ipswich. The only card of the game went to Harry Toffolo for the Millers.

In February 2015 Ipswich came to the New York Stadium when the Millers were in twentieth place in the Championship and the Tractor Boys in fourth. Matt Derbyshire opened the scoring on thirty-eight minutes and Conor Salmon made it two against his former club in the second half to give the hosts all three points. Two yellow cards were shown that day – to Town’s Cole Skuse and to Zeki Fryers of the Millers.

The last time Ipswich were at Millmoor was in August 2004. The game was a two-nil win for the Tractor Boys with Shefki Kuqi scoring two minutes before half-time and two minutes after half-time.

The game at Portman Road earlier this season was a two-nil win for Rotherham with Matt Crooks scoring both goals, the first on eleven minutes and the second three minutes into the second half. Billy Jones, Joe Mattock and Trevor Clarke saw yellow for the visitors with the only yellow card for Ipswich going to substitute Gwion Edwards.
