A few facts and figures of previous meetings between the Millers and MK Dons

Rotherham United welcome MK Dons to the New York Stadium for the ninth league meeting between the pair.

The two last met at the New York Stadium in August 2015 when Rob Hall opened the scoring for the visitors. Eight minutes later Matt Derbyshire equalised for the Millers but a Danny Collins own goal plus a Dean Bowditch strike gave the Dons a three-one lead going into the break. Things got worse for the hosts fifteen minutes from time when substitute Carl Baker made it four-one giving the visitors all three points.

April 2014 saw the teams meet at the New York Stadium in League One. The Millers got off to a bad start when Matthew Kennedy scored for the visitors within the first ten minutes. In the opening minutes of the second half a bit of pulling and shoving on Kieran Agard saw Brendan Galloway get a second yellow and an early bath but it was the ten-man Dons who made it two-nil on seventy-two minutes with Izale McLeod getting the goal. Seven minutes later Michael O`Connor pulled one back and the resilient Millers got a last minute equaliser courtesy of Alex Revell`s head.

In January 2008 the teams met at Millmoor when a goal eight minutes from time from Mark Wright sent the Dons away happy.

The first time the two met on Rotherham soil in the League was at Millmoor in May 2006. The game ended goalless which sent the Dons down as they`d gone into the game needing a win to stay up.
