Rotherham United welcome Luton Town for their first visit to the New York Stadium

The last time the pair met on ‘Rotherham soil’ was at the Millers temporary home of the Don Valley Stadium in September 2008 when the only goal of the game came just after the hour mark with Alex Rhodes giving the hosts all three points.

The Millers and Hatters last met at Millmoor in September 2000 in Division Two. Andrew Fotiadis gave the visitors the lead on six minutes with Mark Robins getting a Rotherham equaliser on the sixty-fifth minute.

In 1997 at Millmoor a Tony Thorpe hat-trick gave Luton all three points while in the  1983/4 season the Millers lost three-two to the Hatters.

The last time that Rotherham won in Rotherham against Luton was in December 1962 in the Old Second Division. The Millers won two-one with both goals coming from John McCole.

The pair did meet at Don Valley in the FA Cup in November 2009 when the Millers were in League Two and Luton were in non-league. On twenty-one minutes Tom Craddock gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot but Adam Le Fondre equalised on the stroke of half-time. A looping header in the second half from Stephen Brogan put the hosts in front but Luton forced a replay when substitute Mark Nwokeji made it two-all with fifteen minutes to go. The replay at Kenilworth Road was a three-nil win for Luton.
