Rotherham pack their bags to visit Port Vale at Vale Park on Monday afternoon, 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 previous match played between the two at Vale Park was within the last three years, in October 2006, as the visitors ran out cosy 3-1 winners in a League One match.
