History of the Port Vale v Rotherham United fixture
Rotherham face a trip to Port Vale at Vale 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 at Vale was last season, in November 2009, with Rotherham inflicting a narrow 2-1 defeat upon the Valiants after a 90th minute Nicky Law strike.
