Rotherham United welcome Wycombe Wanderers for their second visit to the New York Stadium, the first being in November 2012 in League Two. 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.
