Rotherham United travel to the Priestfield Stadium on Saturday to take on a Gillingham team who are four places below the Millers in League One.

The Millers take on the Gills on the back of a home defeat but their last away win, against top of the table Ipswich Town, was a two-nil win for Rotherham with the last defeat away from the New York Stadium coming at Bristol Rovers at the end of September.

Gillingham beat Accrington Stanley away last weekend with their last game at the Priestfield being a one-all draw with Shrewsbury, The Gills last won at home at the beginning of October against Southend.

There are four places and three points between the Millers and the Gills.

Gillingham Boss Steve Evans told their Official Site that he had ‘the most wonderful years at the New York Stadium’ saying, ‘Rotherham United are a club deep in my heart.’ Carrying on Steve said, ‘They (Rotherham) are full of talented players and it’s another tough one for us.’

Barry Fuller will hope to be back for Saturday after missing out since the beginning of October while Lee Hodson and former Miller Ben Pringle have shrugged off injuries and could both be in the starting eleven.

Rotherham United’s Assistant Manager Richie Barker told iFOLLOW that the Millers away form must be ‘up there’ regarding League One saying, ‘We’ll be going there with confidence but it is a difficult place to go to.’

Although there is some good news for the Millers about Adam Thompson, who has yet to pull on a shirt for Rotherham since joining in August, he is back in training but it’s doubtful he’ll make this game while Clark Robertson and Kyle Vassell are definitely missing. Shaun MacDonald won’t make it either as he is suffering the effects of a bad illness.

Lee Swarby from Devon is the referee in charge of this game.
