A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and the Seagulls
Rotherham United welcome Brighton and Hove Albion, who have made the long Tuesday night trek, to the New York Stadium on Tuesday night.
This will be the forty-eighth league meeting between the side with The Seagulls winning eighteen to the Millers seventeen.
Last season the game at the New York Stadium was a two-nil win for the hosts. Danny Ward scored on the stroke of half-time with a Matt Derbyshire goal on eighty-six minutes giving the Millers all three points.
The season before when Brighton were at the New York Stadium was on Easter Monday in 2015 when the only goal of the game came on just eight minutes from Matt Derbyshire.
The last time the pair met at Millmoor was 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 for the visitors 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 for a mistimed tackle on Lee Williamson was his last of the day! The Millers fielded eight players making their home debuts on the day.
