Rotherham United welcome Coventry City for their second league visit to the New York Stadium, the only other visit was on New Years Day 2014 when Joe Skarz put the hosts in front on thirty-five minutes but after Craig Morgan saw red on the seventieth minute Carl Baker scored from the penalty spot, Franck Moussa put them in front and in the last minute Baker scored his second to give the visitors a three-one victory.

The last time that Coventry City played at Millmoor was again New Years Day, this time 2005, when both sides were in The Championship. Jose Junior opened the scoring for the Millers, who was on loan from Derby County, on thirty-nine minutes but second half goals from Stern John and Ady Williams gave the visitors the win on the day.

The last time the Millers beat Coventry on home soil was a cold Tuesday night in December 2003. The opening goal was on the thirteenth minute from Darren Byfield with Shaun Barker adding a second five minutes before half-time. No further goals gave the Millers all three points.
