History of the Grimsby Town v Rotherham United fixture

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.
