Rotherham United travel to the Priestfield Stadium this evening to take on Gillingham who are twelve places below them in League One.

The Millers last away game was on Saturday, where they got a good point at top placed Wigan whilst also keeping a clean sheet.

The Gills last home game also saw them get a goalless draw with promotion hopefuls Blackburn Rovers.

Gillingham’s Manager Steve Lovell said that because they have been doing alright of late, fans now expect them to win saying, ‘it’s not as easy as that.’

Lee Martin is out serving a suspension for the hosts but defender Alex Lacey is expected to be back after missing out on Saturday. Billy Bingham is out for the rest of the season while this game might come a little early for both Rhys Murphy and Franck Moussa.

Millers Manager Paul Warne thinks the Gills Manager has done a ‘brilliant job’ and has them ‘well organised’. He also went on to say, ‘They’re a really good team who probably aren’t scoring as freely as they’d like but they aren’t conceding. We know it’s going to be a tough place to go and hope that we bring something back with us.’

Rotherham have Joe Newell back in contention after he missed Saturday’s goalless draw at Wigan. Richie Towell came off on Saturday and although he might travel Paul Warne won’t risk him if he’s not fit. Joe Mattock probably won’t make it but Darren Potter might travel, whether he will play any part in the game or not we will have to wait and see.
