After losing twenty one of the last twenty nine games the Millers go hoping to rid themselves of the ‘curse of Chesterfield` and keep up their latest impressive run which sees them lying in third place in the League.

The last time the Millers beat Chesterfield at (the now named) Recreation Ground was in August 2005 when a Martin Butler goal separated the teams in which the referee that day, Mr Laws, booked eight players (four from each side)

Here are the stats for the last few years between the two teams
