A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and the Rams
Rotherham United welcome Derby County to the New York Stadium this weekend for the last game of the 2016/17 season.
The game at the New York Stadium last season saw six goals after a goalless first half. Tom Ince scored in the fifty-fifth minute with Chris Martin making it two eight minutes later. Just two minutes after that a lot of Millers fans started to drift away from the stadium when Ince got his second and Derby’s third. With seven minutes to go Danny Ward made it three-one with substitute Leon Best scoring on eighty-five and ninety minutes to send the fans still in the stadium wild and give the Millers a point.
The season before also saw six goals. Paul Green opened the scoring for the Millers on the thirty-eighth minute but a minute later Tom Ince made it one-one. Four minutes into the second half Richie Smallwood regained the lead for the hosts with Matt Derbyshire making it three-one on the fifty-fourth minute. Tom Ince pulled one back for the visitors with a goal on eighty-three minutes from Darren Bent giving Derby a point. Kari Arnason was the only player booked that day.
The last time the Millers met the Rams at Millmoor was in February 2005 in the snow. After Derby had dominated the game the Millers got a rare corner which Tom Huddleston handled in the box and, from the resulting spot-kick, Martin Butler sent a certain Lee Camp the wrong way to make it one-nil. Just after the half-hour mark Derby were level after Jeff Kenna found Grzegorz Rasiak in the box who slipped the ball under Mike Pollitt in the Millers’ goal. Two minutes into the second half Marcus Tudgay put the Rams ahead and on the seventy-seventh minute Phil Gilchrist brought Adam Bolder down in the area and Inigo Idiakez scored the visitors third from the penalty spot.
The last time that the Millers beat the Rams on Rotherham soil was when both sides were in League One in August 2002. Branko Strupar put the visitors in front just after half-time but two goals from Alan Lee gave Rotherham the win.

The first time the pair met at Millmoor was in Division Two in May 1922 when the Millers went under Rotherham County. Goals from Bell and Pape gave the Millers a two-nil win.
Derby and Rotherham did meet when the Millers were in their temporary home of Don Valley Stadium in August 2009 in the Carling Cup. Gary Teale scored for the Rams on eleven minutes but a goal just before half-time from Paul Warne and then another from Kevin Ellison in the second half gave the Millers the win and a second round tie away at West Brom.
The game at Pride Park earlier this season was a victory for the Rams with the only goal of the game coming from Jeff Hendrick eight minutes from time.
Of the forty-seven league games the teams have played before Derby have won eighteen to Rotherham’s fourteen.
The game earlier this season at the IPro Stadium was a three-nil win for the hosts with goals from Tom Ince (2) and Darren Bent.
