Priestfield Stadium

Millers v Gills Preview

Rotherham United make the long journey down to Gillingham this evening where it will be third place takes on seventh.

The Millers will be hoping to put an end to not their losing away form - having lost their last three games away from Don Valley. Though, not having won at the Priestfield Stadium for almost twenty-three years, this could be a hard ask for Ronnie Moore`s men.

The Millers travel to Kent on the back of doing the 'double` over Crewe this season with a three-one win at Don Valley while Gillingham drew nil-nil with Rotherham`s opponents next weekend, Oxford.

Vital Quotes:

Andy Hessenthaler - Rotherham won on Saturday and we drew and they will be coming full of confidence. But so should we with the run we're on. We certainly don't fear Rotherham.
Ronnie Moore - People tell me we haven`t a great record here but that won`t affect us, if anything, it should make us more determined to put things right. It`s an important game and a difficult place to go to, but if we show the workrate and commitment we showed on Saturday then we can come away with a result

Gillingham Team News:

Andy Hessenthaler has hinted at changes from the side that drew at the weekend. Joe Martin will certainly be out after fracturing a cheekbone in training yesterday. Tony Sinclair trained yesterday but probably won`t be fit while Josh Gowling and Andy Barcham are still suffering with injuries

Player to watch: Cody McDonald

On a season long loan with the Gills from Norwich City and has scored fifteen goals in fifteen appearances

Rotherham United Team News:

Although Manager Ronnie Moore thinks they have been 'too adventurous of late, he will probably name the same side that started on Saturday against Crewe. Skipper, Ryan Cresswell, is still out with a shoulder injury

Player to watch: Ryan Taylor

Home bred striker who has found his form this season and, if he gets the chance, will add to his eight goal tally



Ref Watch:

Darren Sheldrake from Surrey

Next Fixtures:

The Millers travel to Oxford on Saturday
