Rotherham United’s first game back in the Championship sees them travel to Brentford.

The Bees and Millers have met sixty times in the league in the past with Rotherham winning twenty-four of those to Brentford’s twenty.

The last time the pair met at Griffin Park was in February 2017, a game which saw six goals. Jota scored for the hosts on thirteen minutes with Aimen Belaid making it one-one on sixty-seven minutes. Ten minutes later Nico Yennaris put the hosts back in front but three minutes from time Anthony Forde equalised for Rotherham. In time added on Semi Ajayi was thought to have handled in the box and Jota scored from the resulting penalty to put the Bees back in front and just before the whistle signalled the end of the game Lewis Price, who was a late replacement for Richard O’Donnell who suffered a warm-up hand injury, twice saved from Sergi Canos but couldn’t do anything to stop Jota getting his hat-trick and making it four-two to Brentford.

The Millers first home league game of the season sees Ipswich Town the visitors to the New York Stadium.

Rotherham and Sheffield United first meet at the New York Stadium on 24th November while the Millers first meet the Owls on 8th December at Hillsborough.

Boxing Day sees Rotherham at Bolton while they take on Preston on New Years Day at the New York Stadium.

Of course, these games are subject to change.
