ROTHERHAM UNITED have been handed a home clash with promoted MK Dons in their Championship seasonal opener in 2015-16.

The full Football League fixture list was revealed this morning and just like last season, the Millers will end the campaign on their travels in a Yorkshire derby.

After visiting Leeds United in their final assignment of 2014-15, Steve Evans’s side pull down the curtain on another year with a trip to Hull City on May 7 - when they will be making their first ever league journet to the KC Stadium.

The Millers eagerly-awaited derbies with Sheffield Wednesday take place on October 24 and March 5 respectively.

The first is staged in Rotherham in the autumn with the Millers keen to ease their pain after last-gasp derby woe at the hands of Wednesday in an agonisingly 3-2 home loss in March - you have to go back to March 1976 for their last league win over the Owls.

The Millers then visit Hillsborough in March.

Rotherham visit Elland Road on November 21, with the return taking place at the AESSEAL New Stadium on April 2.

The Millers welcome Bolton on Boxing Day, and hit the road for their second Yuletide assignment two days later at Fulham.

United’s pre-holiday season encounter is a home clash with Hull on December 19.

Rotherham welcome Huddersfield on April 19 and their last home clash of the season is against Blackburn on April 30.
