Rotherham face a trip to Grimsby Town at Blundell Park on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Millers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2009, with Grimsby Town running out comfortable 3 - 0 winners in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides
The Millers have started the season with a win over Accrington and a defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Saturday at Dean Court. The Mariners sit pointless and bottom and come into the game on the back of a thumping at home to Crewe at the weekend.

The Mariners are without Adrian Forbes and Nathan Jarmanthrough injury so Adam Proudlock could come in to start. Peter Sweeney may make a return in midfield too.
Rotherham are likely to give new signing Adam Le Fondre his full debut in place of Tom Pope in their only change to the weekend loss at Bournemouth.
