Rotherham United welcome Nottingham Forest for their fifth league visit to the New York Stadium, the last one being in April 2019 which saw Michael Smith put the hosts in front on ten minutes after a Yohan Benalouane backheel had hit the post for Forest. Lewis Grabban also hit the post but on the twenty-eighth minute the former Miller equalised but a Michael Ihiekwe header on the hour mark gave the Millers their first win against Forest in twenty-three games.

Forest were also at the New York Stadium in September 2016. With half-an-hour of the game gone Jon Taylor put the hosts in front but second half goals from Matt Mills and Apostolos Vellios gave Forest the lead. Rotherham went down to ten men when Darnell Fisher got a second yellow card but with three minutes to go Jon Taylor was there again to get the Millers a point from the game. The game at the New York Stadium in the April ended goalless which was also the score in December 2014.

Forest’s last win at Millmoor in the league was in March 2002 as goals from Jack Lester and Marlon Harewood took the points, with a Mark Robins penalty the only reply from the home side. Tony Leake was the referee that day and he showed a yellow card to each team – one to Eugen Bopp, then of Forest, and one to The Millers’ Chris Swailes.

The first time the teams met was in 1919 when the Millers were known as Rotherham County. The hosts won the game 2-0 with Cawley and Lee the scorers.

The game at the City ground in October, which was Chris Hughton’s first home game in charge, saw the teams get a point each with a fifty-one minute penalty from Dan Barlaser and an equaliser twenty-eight minutes later from Sammy Ameobi.
