Rotherham United welcome Peterborough for their third league visit to the New York Stadium.

The last time the pair met in Rotherham was Good Friday in March 2018 when Caolan Lavery put the hosts one up on sixty-eight minutes only for Jack Marriott to grab a last minute goal and a point for Peterborough the time before being in September 2013 when the Posh consigned the Millers to their first league defeat of the season. Kari Arnason was alleged to have handled in the area with Grant McCann scoring from the resulting penalty six minutes into the second half.

The last time the Millers beat Peterborough on Rotherham soil, at Millmoor, was in August 2007 when Derek Holmes opened the scoring on eight minutes with Chris O’Grady making it two-nil on thirty-three minutes. Two minutes later it was three-nil with a second goal from Holmes and could have had his hat-trick at the start of the second half but saw his shot go just past the post. Aaron McLean got a consolation in the final minutes of the game for the Posh but it was the Millers fans who went home happy. Playing for the visitors that day was Craig Morgan who went on to captain Rotherham.
