Rotherham United welcome Bristol Rovers for just their second visit to the New York Stadium on Saturday.

The sides have met fifty-five times in the League in the past with Rovers winning twenty-two of those games to the Millers’ nineteen.

The last time the pair met at the New York Stadium was in January 2013 which Rovers won three-one, a game in which Claude Davis had a bit of a debut nightmare for the Millers. The tall defender bundled over Ryan Brunt in the area to give the visitors a forty-third minute penalty which Lee Brown duly scored. Claude then got a second yellow and was given an early bath before half-time. Ellis Harrison and Joe Anyinsah made it three-nil with substitute David Noble grabbing a consolation goal on seenty-three minutes.

The last time that the sides met at Millmoor was in March 2001. Richie Barker scored the first goal of the game a minute before half-time with Jeff Minton, on his Millers debut, scoring twice in the second half to give the Millers a three-nil win.

Earlier this season the game at the Memorial Stadium was a win for the hosts. Ryan Williams put the Millers in front of fifty-six minutes but Rovers came back with goals from Ellis Harrison and Liam Sercombe to make it two-one. With ten minutes to go the Millers went down to ten men after Kieffer Moore was shown a red card for an elbow on Lee Brown.
