The Millers face a trip to Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday afternoon, with quite a number of Millers fans traveling,and making a weekend of it.
However they need to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Millers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 10 and win only 3 of the 18 games.
The Millers' only injury doubt is Kevin Ellison, who had to leave the field during the Derby game with a stomach illness after scoring what proved to be the the winner.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in October 2008, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Two match.
