A few facts and figures about past meetings between the Millers and the Shrimps
Rotherham United entertain Morecambe at Don Valley on Saturday which will be the tenth time the two teams have met.
Three years to the day is the only time the Shrimps have lost at Don Valley. Ryan Taylor gave the Millers the lead on the stroke of half-time but Diarmuid O’Carroll equalised seven minutes into the second half. Ten minutes from time Jason Taylor regained the lead for the Millers and a minute before the end Jim Bentley handled on the line and Mark Burchill scored from the penalty spot to give the Millers a three-one lead. In injury time Bentley made amends for the penalty by getting the visitors second to make it three-two.

Since then, at Don Valley, there have been a goalless draw and last season Morecambe went away with all three points when a goal from James Spencer, was enough to give the visitors the win.
The game at the Globe Arena earlier this season ended three-three. Gary McDonald and two penalties from Laurence Wilson put the home side three-up but the Millers came back with a Lewis Grabban penalty and goals from Gareth Evans and Alex Revell.
