A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and the Brewers
Rotherham United entertain Burton Albion at Don Valley on Saturday for only the fifth time in the League, the Millers winning two of the games and the other two being draws.
The Brewers joined the Football League in 2009 and first played at Don Valley in December that year. The game ended two-two with Adam Le Fondre scoring both Millers’ goals – one in each half. Aaron Webster pulled one back for Albion on sixty-five minutes and five minutes later Nick Fenton took a lunge at Webster on the half-way round, for no apparent reason, and was sent for an early bath. The visitors then got on top of ten-man Rotherham and five minutes from time Greg Pearson got an equaliser for Burton.
