History of the Chesterfield v Rotherham United fixture

Rotherham face a trip to Chesterfield on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 22 out of 31 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2008, the Spireites carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League Two match with Alan Goodall's last minute winner proving the difference.
