Sky Bet League One

MEMS Priestfield Stadium

Saturday April 30th

Kick-Off, 12.30pm


Team News:

Despite being sent off at Portsmouth, Gills boss Neil Harris will be on the touchline for the club’s final game of the season. However, captain Stuart O’Keefe is an injury doubt after coming off against Portsmouth. He will be fighting to lead the team out.

Charlie Kelman remains suspended following his sending off against Fleetwood, and Robbie McKenzie will be unavailable after going off with injury in the same game. Mustapha Carayol is a doubt going into the final game, but may be fit enough to make the bench.


Paul Warne confirmed that his side has no new injury worries going into the final game of the season, meaning he will have the same squad to pick from after the 1-1 draw at Sunderland.

The Millers boss also confirmed that there will be no players returning from injury in time for the game despite Mickell Miller training during the week.


Manager Comments:

Neil Harris - "I care for the Football Club. We have come so far in a short space of time.

"It's now about one last push.

"It's about one game, that's all it is. I've got good players and we can compete with anyone in the division. My approach to any game is to try and win. That hasn't changed."


Paul Warne - "We'll prepare them as well as we can and then it is like watching your children walk into school for the first time. They'll walk over the white line and there will be some random things that happen in the game, there will be rumours from other grounds and I know Gillingham want to win for survival."


Previous Meetings:

Gillingham’s last home win against Rotherham came during the club’s title winning campaign. Deon Burton scored the only goal of the game that day as the win put Martin Allen’s side one step closer to promotion.
