History of the Rotherham United v Bury fixture

Bury face a trip to Rotherham United at Don Valley Stadium on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Shakers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2007, the The Millers carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League Two match.
