The Third round of the Carling Cup comes to Don Valley tomorrow night when Rotherham United take on Championship side Southampton. The Millers are the only League Two team still in the competition and will be trying to overcome the Saints to get into the last sixteen for the first time in six years.
The last time Southampton won was in the last round of this competition against Birmingham and they are third from the bottom of the Championship.
The Millers are third from the bottom of League Two but have only lost once this season so far and never at Don Valley.
