A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and the Seagulls

Rotherham United welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to the New York Stadium in what will be the forty-fourth league meeting between the sides.

The last time the pair met on Rotherham soil was at Millmoor at the beginning of the 2006/7 season when both sides were in League One. A certain Alex Revell scored the only goal of the game two minutes before the end of the first half with Dean Cox seeing a second yellow card and early bath two minutes later. His first yellow card was for joining in with Revell’s celebration and his second a couple of minutes later his mistimed tackle on Lee Williamson was his last of the day! The Millers fielded eight players making their home debuts on the day.

The last time the Millers beat Brighton at Millmoor was in September 2002 when an Alan Lee goal on twenty minutes was the only goal of the game.

In March 1995 Brighton came to Millmoor on a Tuesday night and the game saw seven goals. The Millers were the winner four-three with goals from Andy Roscoe, Shaun Goater and Ian Breckin plus an own goal from Stuart Munday (although it has also been credited to Nathan Peel). Brighton’s goals were scored by Stuart Myall, John Byrne and Paul Byrne.

The first time the teams met at Millmoor was in the Old Division Two in October 1958. Brighton won the game one-nil.

The game earlier this season was a one-all draw. Joe Bennett scored just before half-time with Alex Revell equalising three minutes into the second half.
