A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and Rovers . . . .

Rotherham United welcome Blackburn Rovers for their second visit to the New York Stadium.

The Millers and Rovers have met thirty-one times before in the league with Blackburn winning sixteen of those to Rotherham’s eleven.

The only time the pair have met at the New York Stadium was at the end of September 2014. Kari Arnason opened the scoring on five minutes with Luciano Becchio making it two just after the half hour mark which gave all three points to the hosts. Booked that day for the Millers was Lee Frecklington with Rovers having Grant Hanley, Shane Duffy and Cory Evans booked.

Before that the last tie the two met was in Division Two in May 1983 at Millmoor when a hat-trick from John Seasman gave the Millers a three-one victory.

The last time Rovers were victorious on Rotherham soil was at Millmoor in February 1980 when both sides were in Division Three. Richard Finney was the scorer of the Millers goal.

The first time the two met at Millmoor was in November 1951 when the Millers won three-nil with goals from Jack Shaw (2) and Charlie Tomlinson.

Earlier this season at Ewood Park an own goal from Luke Hyman gave Rovers all three points.
