Last Season the Millers overcame non-league Barrow at Holker Street after the home side went one in front on sixteen minutes with a goal from Paul Rutherford. It took the Millers until eight minutes before full-time to equalise when Lewis Grabban scored and the striker scored again five minutes later from the penalty spot to give the Millers a second round tie at the Greenhous Meadow against Shrewsbury Town. Grabban put the visitors ahead from the penalty spot on forty-two minutes but Marcus Marshall saw red on the stroke of half-time and the Shrews captain Ian Sharps (yes, 'our' Sharpsy!) levelled the scored three minutes after the break with Nicky Wroe scoring from the spot on eighty-three minutes to knock the Millers out.
In the 2009/10 Luton Town came to Don Valley in the second round and went ahead with a Tom Craddock twenty-first minute penalty. Adam Le Fondre scored just before the break and Stephen Brogan put the Millers ahead just after the hour mark only for Mark Nwokeji equalising to send the tie to a replay at Kenilworth Road. The Hatters were in charge of the replay from the first minute and the Millers crashed out three-nil sending Luton into a third round tie with Southampton which they lost one-nil at St Mary's Stadium.
The last time the Millers actually got into the Third Round of the FA Cup was in the 2004/5 season. As they were in the Championship at the time they by-passed the first two rounds! Yeovil came to Millmoor and won three-nil and went onto play Charlton at The Valley where they narrowly lost three-two.
The last time the Millers progressed into the third round was in January 2002 when Southampton were the visitors at Millmoor. Richie Barker put the Millers in front on thirty-nine minutes and ten minutes into the second half John Mullin made it two-nil. The Saints were awarded a penalty on seventy minutes which Marian Pahars put away but Rotherham held on to play Crewe in the fourth round ten days later. The Alex won the game four-two at Millmoor and met Everton in the next round who they took to a replay and before losing two-one.
The last time the Millers got through the first two rounds of the FA Cup was in the 2000/01 season. A goal from Alan Lee gave the Millers a win away at Wrexham, in a game that saw Guy Branston red carded, and they met Northampton at Millmoor in the second leg where a Garry Hughes og on fourteen minutes was enough to see the Millers through. The draw gave the Millers a great game at Anfield in January.
