History of the Barnet v Rotherham United fixture

The Millers face a trip to Barnet at Underhill on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having managed to conjure up just 1 win from the previous 6 games and losing the past 3.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2007, with Barnet running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Barnet have lost just once in their last six home games, winning four and drawing the other one. A total of 15 goals have been scored by the Bees in those games, with 9 conceded.

The Millers away form is equally impressive, remaining unbeaten in their last six, winning five on the spin and drawing the one. Those games have seen the Millers pummel 13 goals, and let in 4. The games include a 1-0 win at Alderhsot and a thumping 4-2 win at Luton which saw them safe from relegation. Tonight they look to equal a club record of 6 successive away league victories, which has stood since 1950/51.

Barnet are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 40 from their 40 matches played but go into the game on the back of an impressive win at promotion chases Gillingham on Saturday.

Rotherham see themselves just below half way, showing a record of 51 points from their 39 games played so far, if the 17 point deduction was added to that then Mark Robins' men would be sitting pretty in 2nd spot and pushing for promotion.

Team News...

Barnet right back Mark Hughes returns after three games out but Michael Leary (thigh) remains absent. The Bees will also give a fitness test to defender Abu Ogogo

Danny Harrison is fit for the Millers despite stitches in a mouth wound and coming off on Saturday after half an hour. Jamie Green is still injured with an ankle problem so Marc Joseph continues at left back, otherwise we should be unchanged.
