A few facts and figures of the Millers v Shrimps League games

Rotherham United take on Morecambe for only the eighth time in the league on Saturday and have won just three of those games.

The first league meeting between the two was back in October 2007 at Millmoor where Jim Bentley put the visitors in the lead a minute after half-time. A Stephen Brogan penalty on seventy-one minutes gave the Millers the equaliser and two goals from Jamie Yates in the final ten minutes gave the home side all three points.
