History of the Chesterfield v Rotherham United fixture
Rotherham United face their first trip to Chesterfield's B2Net Stadium on Friday evening having come away with little in previous meetings down the years at Saltergate until recently, having been beaten a depressing 22 out of 32 times.
The most recent encounter between these two sides in Derbyshire was just last season, in January, with Tom Pope's last minute strike inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Spireites in a League Two match.
Tomorrow night's game sees a sell out crowd and the live cameras packed into the stadium as the Millers push for the points to close the gap on their hosts, who sit top of the tree, and the top three promotion spots.
Early this season the Millers nicked a 1-0 win at Don Valley in the corresponding fixture and have won the last four games between the sides at all venues.
