Rotherham United travel to Birmingham to take on Aston Villa at Villa Park for this Tuesday evening game.

Rotherham United and Aston Villa have met ten times in the league, Villa winning seven of those to the Millers two.

The last time the Millers were the visitors at Villa Park was in August 2016. Two first half goals from Rudy Gestede and one in the second half from Jack Grealish gave the hosts a three-nil win.

The last, and only, time the Millers won at Villa Park in the league was in October 1971. The score was two-one in this old Division Three game with Carl Gilbert and Trevor Phillips being Rotherham’s scorers on the day. Andy Lochhead replied for the hosts in front of over 30,000 fans. Villa ended that season top of Division Three, five points ahead of Brighton. The Millers finished fifth.

The first league game at Villa Park saw two goals from Bobby Thomson added to a first from Ron Wylie to give the hosts a three-nil victory.
