Rotherham will be looking to avenge the 1-0 defeat by MK at Millmoor last month and close the gap on the League 2 leaders.
Although this will be our 3rd visit to Milton Keynes, it will be only our second with the club known as MK Dons.
They were still known as Wimbledon when we first went there for a 2-1 victory in December 2003.
Back in season 2005-2006 we drew 1-1 at the National Hockey Stadium on a bitterly cold Saturday in October.
Andy Monkhouse had given 17th placed Rotherham a 24th minute lead, and we looked like ending a run of 9 games without a win before Malvin Kamara levelled matters with just 10 minutes left on the clock to lift MK up to 22nd in Division 1.
Kamara had been brought in to replace Loan player Stephen Quinn, who was to play a pivotal part in keeping the Millers up that season, ironically at the expense of MK Dons.
Playing their last games for the Millers that afternoon were Grant Leadbitter and Barry Conlon who were on loan from Sunderland and Barnsley respectively.
11 Keane (Leadbitter 18)
20 Monkhouse (Brogan 84)
27 Conlon (Butler 66)
25 Brogan (Monkhouse 84)
24 Leadbitter (Keane 18)
9 Butler (Conlon 66)
By the time the Millmoor game came round on May 6th 2006, we were down in 20th still needing a point from this last game of the season, while the Dons still in 22nd needed no less than a win to ensure their safety from the drop into the League basement.
A crowd of 7,625, the highest of the season, packed into Millmoor to watch this us or them decider.
2 first half long range efforts from MK's Izale McLeod and the Millers Lee Williamson had the crowd out of their seats, but both failed to find the target.
The best efforts in the second half were a Martin Butler 1 on 1, which Keeper Matt Baker parried away from goal with his foot, and Millers Keeper Neil Cutler saving from McLeod at full stretch.
After an agonising 90 minutes for both teams, Sussex Referee Clive Penton blew to end the season and with it, Milton Keynes stay in Division 1
