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

Rotherham United welcome QPR to the New York Stadium and what will be just the thirteenth league meeting between the pair.

The game at Rotherham last season was in January and things were going well for the Millers until seven minutes into the second half when Junior Hollett scored for the visitors. Two minutes later Matt Phillips added to the score with a goal on the stroke of full-time from Sebastian Polter made it a three-nil QPR victory. The only yellow of the game was to the Millers Shay Facey.

March 2005 was the time before last season we saw Rangers in town and it was at Millmoor when a Martin Rowlands goal on fifty-three minutes won the game for the visitors. John Mullin, Martin McIntosh and Michael Keane were booked on the day for the Millers with Rangers having Danny Shittu, Martin Rowlands and Paul Furlong yellow carded.
