Mark Bradley's goal earned them a superb 1-0 win at my title tips Brentford last weekend and they were unfortunate to be beaten by a Posh penalty a week earlier.
Steve Evans may have his critics but even they must soon tip their hat his way if Rotherham carry this form on.
They don't concede too many, just 11 in 10 games to date, and with the likes of Daniel Nardiello, Alex Revell, Matt Tubbs and Bolton loanee Tom Eaves to call upon at the other end they will always be a threat going forward.
Next up for them is Swindon, who don't travel well, and I'm backing the 6/4 with BetVictor for the Millers to make us merry.
Leaders Orient welcome MK Dons to Brisbane Road this weekend looking to maintain their stunning unbeaten start.
One man who will be gunning for them will be Patrick Bamford - their Chelsea loanee has made a brilliant start to his second loan spell with Karl Robinson's men.
His double in the defeat to Gillingham last time out took his tally to nine for the season and without him the Dons would be struggling to keep pace with the play-off pack.
The Dons will give Russell Slade's men a stern test of their promotion credentials and for that reason I'd back Bamford to score at any time. He's 7/4 with to do that with Sky Bet.

They were cruising 3-0 up at the break only to lose 4-3 and boss Paul Cook has no doubt read them the riot act.
The Cod Army meanwhile were riding their luck to win 3-1 at Bristol Rovers and it's on the road that they have saved their best form for.
Burton and Exeter have already left with all the points but I believe this could be quite cagey between the two teams who I predict will finish where they are now.
The draw is available at 5/2 with BetVictor and that looks the price to get on here.
