RUFC - Head-to-Head v Villa
Rotherham United welcome Aston Villa for their first visit to the New York Stadium.

The teams have only played nine times in the league in the past with Villa winning six times to the Millers two.

The last time the Millers won on Rotherham soil was in December 1959, which was the first league meeting between the two, although they had met at Millmoor in the FA Cup in 1953. The league game was a two-one win for the hosts with goals from Bill Myerscough and Brian Sawyer with Jimmy Adam scoring for Villa.

The last meeting in the league at Millmoor was in 1972 when Villa beat the Millers two-nil. Andy Lochhead and Ray Graydon were the scorers that afternoon.

The game at Villa Park earlier this season saw the hosts win 3-0 with first two half goals from Rudy Gestede and a goal six minutes from time from Jack Grealish.
