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

Rotherham United make a trip to the seaside this week when they travel to Bloomfield Road to take on Blackpool.

It’s almost three years since the Millers were in Blackpool which saw an Emmanuel Ledesma put the visitors in front. But with six minutes to go the Seasiders drew level with a goal from Dom Telford. Ledesma and Lee Frecklington saw yellow cards that afternoon.

The game before in Blackpool saw a win for Rotherham in August 2006 when a Will Hoskins goal was the only goal of the game.

The last time Blackpool beat the Millers at Bloomfield Road was on Easter Monday 1997 when goals from David Linighan, Phil Clarkson, Tony Ellis and Andy Barlow gave the hosts a four-nil lead although Ian Breckin got a consolation in the final two minutes of the game for Rotherham.

The game against the teams in November at the New York Stadium ended with a point a piece. Jordan Bowery opened the scoring for the Millers on seventy-eight minutes but a goal seven minutes later from Steve Davies gave the Seasiders a point.

In the nineteen league games the two teams have played against each other in Blackpool have won nineteen to the Millers sixteen.
