Rotherham United welcome fellow strugglers Wycombe Wanderers for their third visit to the New York Stadium for this Easter Monday game.

The Chairboys were last in Rotherham last season in October in a game that had very few chances. The visitors scored the only goal of the game on just five minutes after a mix-up between the Millers defence saw Scott Kashket claim the ball and fire into the net. Michael Smith had the best chance for the hosts but his header was too weak while Daniel Iversen acrobatically tipped away another shot from Kashket.

November 2012 was the last time the pair met on Rotherham soil in a League Two game. A goal in the opening minute of the game from Daniel Nardiello gave the hosts an early lead but Dave Winfield equalised twenty-eight minutes later for Wanderers before Mark Bradley put Rotherham back in front. Two goals five and ten minutes after the start of the second half from Matt McClure gave the visitors a three-two win.

Before that game the pair last met on what was ‘home’ soil for the Millers was in October 2011 at Don Valley when the Millers were beaten by a controversial penalty. Kevin Betsy and Matt Bloomfield put the visitors two up in the first eighteen minutes with Adam Le Fondre and Jason Taylor scoring to equalise before Ben Strevens scored in the last minute of the first half to give Wycombe a three-two lead going into half-time. On sixty-nine minutes Chris Westwood climbed all over Exodus Geohaghon and referee Peter Quinn gave a penalty which Le Fondre put away. Then, as the Millers were getting on top, disaster happened as Betsy seemed to fall over with Johnny Mullins at his heels. The linesman pointed for a corner while Mr Quinn pointed to the penalty spot. With the Millers protesting and the linesman seeming to be on their side the ref went over to have a word with his official and both then decided it was a penalty. Scott Rendell was given the job of taking it and he slotted it home to make it four-three to the visitors.

The last time Wycombe were at Millmoor was in January 2008. The game ended one-all with Stephen Brogan scoring for the home side on fourteen minutes and Scott McGleish equalised eleven minutes into the second half.

Rotherham last beat Wycombe at home was at Millmoor in September 2000 with the only goal of the game coming from Guy Branston on forty-eight minutes. With two minutes to go the hosts went down to ten when Dave Artell got a second yellow and an early bath.

The Millers and Chairboys game earlier this season at Adams Park saw a Michael Ihiekwe goal in time added on at the end of the game give the visitors a one-nil win.
