Rotherham just have the advantage when it comes to games played on March 22nd over the years.
4 wins and 3 defeats from 10 games just tips the scales in The Millers favour.
Last time out was 4 years ago when Rotherham in 11th position in the Championship beat Wimbledon, 9th in the division, 2-1 at Millmoor.
Current caretaker Manager Mark Robins opened the scoring after 19 minutes, in his first game back from his loan spell at Bristol City.
Guy Branston added a second just 3 minutes after the interval, and despite a consolation goal from Dons striker David Connolly, The Millers held on to take all 3 points.
In 1997 Rotherham were clinging on at the bottom of Division 2 and enjoyed their 2nd away win in 4 days on March 22nd, after failing to win on their travels all season.
The Millers had an impressive 2-0 victory at promotion chasing Bristol City the previous Tuesday and doubled their away win tally with a similiar scoreline at Shrewsbury.
Junior MacDougald hit a penalty on 22 minutes, followed by a second from Paul Hurst after 56.
The highest victory on this day was 21 years ago in 1986, as York City were humbled 4-1 at Millmoor.
Alan Birch 2 (1 pen), Kevan Smith and Dean Emerson netting for The Millers, with Marco Gabbiadini getting a goal back for York.
The first game played on this date brought the biggest defeat in this sequence as Crewe Alexandra beat Rotherham 6-1 at Gresty Road in 1930, with Orr netting for Rotherham.
