Cheltenham visit Millmoor for only the second time in their history on Saturday, and only the 4th meeting of the clubs in all competitions.
Cheltenham will be looking for a league double over The Millers to preserve their League one status after winning 2-0 at Whaddon Road on December 16th.
A poor Millers performance in that game was punished by two second half goals for the home side by Brian Wilson on 64 minutes and David Bird in the final minute.
The 2 previous meetings were in Rotherham's promotion winning season of 1999-2000.
The first game at Whaddon Road was on Saturday October 2nd 1999, and 3,331 fans saw a 2-0 victory for Rotherham.
Steve Thompson opened the scoring on 37 minutes from the penalty spot and 2 minutes after the interval Paul Warne doubled the scoreline to give the Millers all 3 points which took us up 4 places into 5th position.
The return game at Millmoor on April 24th finished up with the same scoreline with 5,447 attending the match.
A 12th minute strike from Darren Garner and a second on 84 from Jason White gave Rotherham the win to keep us in 2nd place in Division 3.
Promotion was won 5 days later at Hartlepool.
