The game between Rotherham United and Bury in the League Two on Tuesday, 24th March 2009 at 19:45 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
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.
