Mark Robins first match in charge as Manager is a must win game. Bottom of the table, nine points adrift - the scenario doesn't look good - until you look at the last few games of won one, lost one, won one, lost one and it's the turn of won one. With this is mind and a new manager appointed (albeit the caretaker manager in his new role) things could go right for the Millers tomorrow.

Gillingham have let in forty nine goals on the road this season and have the worst away record in the football league, winning just two. Saying this, a win tomorrow would see them survive in Division One for another season.

Vital Quotes:

Millers Team News:

Fit again midfielder, Michael Keane, looks set to be in the squad for tomorrow with a possible start after playing ninety minutes in the Reserves in mid-week. Justin Cochrane and Richie Partridge may also feature after overcoming injuries. The rest of the team will probably be selected from the squad that lost to Bournemouth last weekend.

Player to watch: Ian Sharps

After being dropped by Mark Robins for a few games, Sharps has forced his way back into the team and has shown his strength at the back.

Gillingham Team News:

Ronnie Jepson will probably put Mark Bentley straight back into the starting line-up after his one match ban. Matty Jarvis looks likely to be out with a groin injury and captain Michael Flynn is doubtful.

Player to watch: Felix Bastians

Young German Under 18 midfield player is on loan from Nottingham Forest and has impressed in the few games he has played for the Gills.
