Once again the Millers are drawn against neighbours Sheffield Wednesday in the First Round of the Carling Cup.

The last time the Millers and Owls played each other was this time last season in the same competition but, unlike this season, the Millers were at home. Danny Harrison put the home side in front on thirty four minutes only for the Owls to come back with an equaliser from Glenn Whelan before Deon Burton and Wade Small made the tie safe for the Owls.

The last time the two teams met in a league game was in the Championship in the 2002/03 season. In August 2002, a late goal from Darren Garner gave the Millers a win at Hillsborough after Craig Armstrong had given the Owls an early lead and Alan Lee had equalised from the penalty spot.
