Travel By Rail
Millmoor is just a five minute walk from the railway station.
On exiting the station go left over the bridge.
Head towards the floodlights over (or under via subway) the dual carriageway, and up Masbrough Street.

Travel By Car
For full travel information see the information section within Millers On-Line.
There is a car park at the ground which costs £2.00, and another car park for away fans walking distance from the ground.

Pubs & Food
There's a couple of handy pubs right next to the ground on Masbrough Street. The Millmoor welcomes away fans and serves food. Alternatively Moulders Rest is a traditional local pub with a mix of home and away fans but food isn't served on match days. A quieter family pub is The Kingfisher which is a short walk away on Mary Street. There's plenty of non-pub food available outside the ground with plenty of chipies right nearby.


Upson - our new loan signing from Arsenal - could well make his debut pushing Williams onto the bench.
