Rotherham United make the short trip to the Pirelli Stadium to take on Burton Albion which will be the Millers sixth visit there.

The last time the Millers were at the visitors at Burton was in December 2016. Jackson Irivine opened the scoring for the hosts on the quarter of an hour mark with a certain Matty Palmer making it two-nil in the second half. Tom Adeyemi halved the deficit in the last minute of the game which ended two-one to Burton.

Three years earlier in February 2013 saw the Millers first defeat at the Pirelli Stadium. Billy Kee scored twice in the encounter for the home side in a game which saw Referee Eddie Ilderton show two yellow cards to Millers players David Noble and Michael O’Connor.

The season before saw the game end one-all after Calvin Zola had put the home side in the lead five minutes before half-time and Shaun Harrad equalised on fifty-five minutes.

In February 2011 there were six goals in the game. Greg Pearson scored on two minutes for Albion but four minutes later Johnny Mullins equalised for the Millers but ten minutes before half-time Aaron Webster put the home side back in front. In the final fifteen minutes of the game goals from Marcus Marshall, Adam Le Fondre and Jason Taylor gave the Millers a four-two victory.

The first time the sides met at the Pirelli was in February 2010 when Adam Le Fondre scored seven minutes into the second half to give the visitors all three points.
