Rotherham U. prepare to entertain Brentford at Don Valley Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Millers are on top, winning 51.85% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was at Millmoor less than a year ago, in April 2008, with Brentford inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon The Millers in a League Two match.
