It’s the first round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Final and the Millers make the short journey into Lincolnshire

Rotherham United travel to Glanford Park tomorrow, knowing that they are just two games away from a possible trip to Wembley.

The last time the teams met was in League One in the 2006/07 season. The game at Millmoor was won by the Millers. Billy Sharp put the visitors ahead in the sixth minute but just a minutes later, Eugen Bopp equalised with Pablo Mills scoring on the stroke of half-time to give the Millers all three points. In the return game at Scunthorpe, Jermaine Beckford got the only goal of the game to give the Iron a win.

In August 1995, these two teams were drawn against each other in the League Cup First Round, which was over two legs. The first game at Glanford Park was a bit of a walk-over for the home side with John Eyre getting a hat-trick and Andy McFarlane getting the fourth. Andy Hayward got a consolation goal for the Millers. The return game at Millmoor in front of just over two thousand fans was an exciting game that went into extra-time. Shaun Goater with two and Andy Hayward made the game four-four on aggregate with Mike Jeffrey and John McGlashen scoring in extra time to put the Millers through to the second round.
