Rotherham prepare to entertain Grimsby Town at Don Valley Stadium, Sheffield on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Millers are clearly on top, having won 13 and lost only 3 of the 23 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Don Valley was just last season, in October 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a League Two match.
