Rotherham United welcome QPR to the New York Stadium for what will be their fourth league visit to the Millers ground.

Rangers were last in Rotherham in November 2018 when a strike from Will Vaulks from just outside the box gave the hosts the lead on six minutes. Nahki Wells equalised for the visitors six minutes later but within three minutes the Millers were back in front after a Vaulks free-kick saw Clark Robertson rise above everyone else to give Rotherham back the lead. It looked like the Millers would get all three points after doing well to keep a determined Rangers side out but it proved too much and in stoppage time a diving header in the box beat defenders and ‘keeper to give the visitors a share of the points.

The time before that saw the teams meet at the New York Stadium in December 2016 again in the Championship when the Millers got their first win since August thanks to an Izzy Brown goal on the twenty-fourth minute.

January 2016 at the New York Stadium was going well for the Millers until seven minutes into the second half when Junior Hollett scored for the visitors. Two minutes later Matt Phillips added to the score with a goal on the stroke of full-time from Sebastian Polter making it a three-nil QPR victory. The only yellow of the game was to the Millers Shay Facey.

March 2005 we also saw Rangers in town and it was at Millmoor when a Martin Rowlands goal on fifty-three minutes won the game for the visitors. John Mullin, Martin McIntosh and Michael Keane were booked on the day for the Millers with Rangers having Danny Shittu, Rowlands and Paul Furlong yellow carded.

The first time that Rotherham and QPR met at Millmoor was in March 1952 when the hosts won one-nil with a goal from Jack Grainger.

The game at Loftus Road earlier this season was a three-two win for the hosts. Ilias Chair put Rangers in front on twenty minutes with Michael Smith equalising eighteen minutes later. Bright Osayi-Samuel made it two-one to Rangers in time added on in the first half followed a minute later with a spot-kick from Lyndon Dykes after Dan Barlaser was said to have handled the ball in the area making it three-one at half-time. With six minutes to go a Michael Ihiekwe header rebounded off the post as far as Freddie Ladapo who made it three-two but another goal wouldn’t come for Rotherham.
