Rotherham could still win the League One title if their results go their way on the final day of the League One campaign on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Rotherham to Win

Rotherham would relegate Gillingham with a win at the Priestfield Stadium on Saturday and with the Millers targeting the points that could land them the League One title on the campaign’s final day, we’re tipping the high fliers to get the job done. Rotherham crushed Gillingham 5-1 in the teams’ reverse fixture in December and the difference in class between the sides should eventually tell again this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

While we expect Rotherham to gather three vital points this weekend, we don’t expect Saturday’s game to match the six-goal bonanza that was produced when the clubs locked horns before Christmas. Six of the Gills’ last seven matches on home soil saw under 2.5 goals scored while the Millers notched one or fewer goals in seven of their last eight away assignments. With both teams noticeably goal-shy, we recommend sticking to the under 2.5 totals line on Saturday.

Both Teams to Score – No

Our final prediction aligns with the low-scoring theme of our second tip and bettors are advised to back both teams not to score at the Priestfield Stadium on Saturday. The struggling Gills have failed to register in five of their last six home fixtures, while the Millers have scored just once in their last five away matches combined. There will be few reliable goal-getters in action this weekend, so expect little in the way of goalmouth action.

Gillingham vs Rotherham Match Preview and Team News


Danny Lloyd, Dan Adshead and Alex MacDonald are all in the treatment room for Gillingham, while Robbie McKenzie and Mustapha Carayol are considered doubtful. Attacker Charlie Kelman is still suspended and will sit Saturday’s game out. The Gills are in 21st place and will need to better Fleetwood’s result against Bolton to secure their survival.


Shane Ferguson, Mickel Miller, Josh Vickers and Will Grigg have all been ruled out for Rotherham this week. The Millers came within a whisker of beating Sunderland on Tuesday evening, though they were eventually pegged back by an 88th-minute equalizer. Rotherham can win the title on the final day if results go their way, though there is a chance that they drop out of the automatic promotion spots completely too.
