Furthermore, only two teams (Wolves and Swindon) scored more goals against the top half, while only Wolves and Bradford conceded fewer.
Leyton Orient have scored in all but four of their League One games this season.
The O’s have been consistent at both ends of the pitch (they have conceded just 0.98 goals a game) but their attack has been the most reliable in the division.
Orient scored in 42 of their 46 league games, the best record in the division, and also netted in both legs of the play-off semi-final against Peterborough.
Rotherham have a poor record in the football league play-offs.
Steve Evans has history against him as he looks to take Rotherham back into the second tier for the first time since the 2004/05 campaign.
The Millers have never won promotion via the play-offs in their three previous attempts, losing their only final 3-2 to Dagenham and Redbridge in 2010.
