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

Rotherham United’s first home league fixture of the season sees Southend United make the trip to the New York Stadium.

The last time the Shrimpers played the Millers was in League Two at the New York Stadium. After going in at half-time goalless, the visitors came out all guns blazing in the second half with Britt Assombalonga scoring twice and Dave Martin once to give Southend a three-nil win.

The last time Southend were on Rotherham soil was in August 2005. The visitors were two up within twenty-six minutes at Millmoor with goals from mark Bentley and Adam Barrett but a Colin Murdock goal on thirty-four minutes and a Deon Burton penalty on forty-five minutes, after Barrett had brought him down in the box, made it two-all at half-time. Wayne Grey came on as sub for the Shrimpers on eighty-three minutes and within five minutes had scored two goals, the second from the penalty spot after Shaun Barker had brought him down in the area.
