The Millers prepare to entertain Notts. County at Don Valley Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 5 of the 18 previous games, with The Millers winning just 4.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Millmoor was just last season, in September 2007, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline. Earlier this campaign the Millers gave County a footballing lesson in one of their best away performances of the season, winning 3-0 at Meadow Lane.
