Rotherham United prepare to entertain Shrewsbury Town at Don Valley Stadium on Tuesday evening on the back of Andy Liddell's first win in charge, a spanking 6-0 triumph at Lincoln on Friday.

The Millers hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 26 games played, They've have recorded 11 wins, and Shrewsbury Town have come away with 9 victories.
