Rotherham United welcome Blackpool for their second league visit to the New York Stadium tomorrow.

The sides have met forty-three times in the league in the past with Blackpool winning nineteen of those to the Millers seventeen.

The last game at the New York Stadium between the two was in November 2014 when Jordan Bowery put the Millers in front on seventy-eight minutes but a goal from Steve Davies seven minutes later gave the visitors a point.

The last time the Millers won against Blackpool on home soil was on a Tuesday night at Millmoor in what was a re-arranged game in March 2007. With the Millers in the relegation zone Chris O’Grady scored the only goal of the game to give them a bit of a lift but they were still seven points adrift.

The game at Millmoor the season before was a four-nil win for the hosts. John Mullin opened the scoring five minutes before half time with a Deon Burton second-half hat-trick making it four-nil.

he last time Blackpool were winners at Millmoor was in August 1996. A goal on the verge of half-time from Andy Hayward gave the Millers the lead but two minutes into the second half Lee Philpott equalised. Andy Preece got the winner for the visitors on the seventy-ninth minute. Andy Roscoe and Mark Monington were booked that evening.

The first ever game between the two at Millmoor was in the Old Division Two on Easter Monday. Blackpool won the game two-one with Rotherham’s goal coming from Albert Pape.

The game at Bloomfield Road earlier this season was a Millers win despite Blackpool taking a lead on twenty-one minutes with a Kevin Mellor goal. David Ball scored two in the second half to give Rotherham all three points.
