A few facts and figures of previous games between the Millers and Rovers

Rotherham United welcome Doncaster Rovers to the New York Stadium for this South Yorkshire derby game.

The last time the teams met on Rotherham soil in the league was at Millmoor in September 2006. The game ended goalless.

Rovers have actually played at the New York Stadium in a pre-season friendly the first summer the Millers moved back home. The game ended two-one to Rotherham.

The last time the Millers beat Rovers at Millmoor was on New Years Eve in 2005. Rotherham won the game one-nil which was the first clean sheet they’d kept since the end of September. Rovers played the last twenty minutes with ten men after Paul Heffernan saw red and with it looking like it would be a nil-nil draw up popped Lee Williamson on the stroke of full-time to give the hosts all three points.

The last time Rovers won on Rotherham soil was in March 1985 when it was a three-two win to the visitors.

The first time the pair met at Millmoor was in September 1923 in Division Three North. Goals from Bailey, Hammerton and Lofthouse gave Rotherham a three-nil victory.

The game earlier this season at the Keepmoat ended one-one. An unfortunate og from Richard Wood gave the hosts the lead on the sixty-second minute but Kieffer Moore equalised in time added on at the end of the game.
