A few facts and figures about previous games between the Millers and the Brewers

Rotherham United make the short journey to take on Burton Albion on Saturday which will be eighth time the two teams have met in the League.


The Millers have never lost at the Pirelli Stadium, last season drawing one-all after Calvin Zola had put the home side in the lead five minutes before half-time and Shaun Harrad equalising on fifty-five minutes.


The first time the sides met at the Pirelli was in February 2010 when Adam Le Fondre scored seven minutes into the second half to give the visitors all three points.


In February 2011 there was six goals in the game. Greg Pearson scored on two minutes for Albion but four minutes later Johnny Mullins equalised for the Millers but ten minutes before half-time Aaron Webster put the home side back in front. In the final fifteen minutes of the game goals from Marcus Marshall, Adam Le Fondre and Jason Taylor gave the Millers a four-two victory.
