Gillingham vs Rotherham United in League One on Apr 30. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Gillingham vs Rotherham United in League One on Apr 30. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

We have ourselves a huge game at both ends of the table as the League One season concludes on Saturday afternoon.

Gillingham head into the final day in the drop zone, but they’re level on points with 20th-placed Fleetwood. Their inferior goal difference means they’ll have to better the Cod Army’s result, however, to pass them. Another potential passage to League One survival for Gillingham is if they win here, coupled with a Morecambe loss against Sunderland.

At the other end of the table, Rotherham are in pole position when it comes to securing the second automatic promotion spot, and they even have a shot of ending the season as champions. The latter would require the Millers winning here and Wigan failing to beat Shrewsbury. With just a point separating the visitors from third-placed MK Dons, though, failure to win here could mean they drop into the play-offs, if the Dons beat Plymouth.

So, there’s plenty of different possible scenarios in what should be a thrilling end to the League One campaign.

Rotherham are odds-on at 4/6 (Paddy Power) to secure all three points, with Gillingham available at odds of 47/10 (Bet-UK) for the win.

Draw

With just one win in their last eight league games, Gillingham are hardly in the form they need to be against one of the best sides in the division, given their League One status is on the line.

Rotherham have been a bit hit-and-miss away from home recently, though - failing to win any of their last five on the road in the league.

Both teams have plenty to play for on the final day and a portion of their approach throughout the game might come down to what they hear in regards to how other teams around them in the table are getting on elsewhere.

Regardless, it should be a competitive affair, and with neither team looking that convincing for win purposes, the points could be shared.

The Gills have drawn four of their last five games at home, while three of Rotherham’s last five matches on the road have been stalemates.

So, opting for the Draw looks the best call to go with, and that’s available at odds of 16/5 (LeoVegas) as well with most online betting sites.

Gillingham Form, squad news, opinion

It’s been a fairly laboured end to the season for Gillingham, and on the last day they find themselves with their fate out of their own hands.

All three points here would give them a great chance of survival, but wins have been at a premium for manager Neil Harris since he took over earlier this year.

The Gills have drawn three of their last four games and four of their last five at home, though, so despite a lack of victories, they are remaining competitive in matches.

Scoring goals at Priestfield Stadium has been one of their recent issues, however. They’ve managed just one goal in their last six outings on their own patch, so they might have to rely on being solid as a unit to get what they require from this clash.

Rotherham United Form, squad news, opinion

Unlike their opponents here, Rotherham have their destiny in their own hands. The Millers know if they win, they secure automatic promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

They’ve struggled slightly on the road lately, though, and against a Gillingham team fighting for their lives, this will be no easy task.

Paul Warne’s men won five straight matches away from home on a stretch from January to February, but they’ve failed to win in any of their five away league games since.

Their form has stuttered a tad compared to their brilliant start to the campaign, but they’re in a position on the last day where even finishing top of the table is a possibility, and that’s surely something most Rotherham fans would have taken at the start of the season.

History

It’s pretty close between the two when you look at previous meetings. Gillingham have 13 wins from their 28 encounters, with Rotherham having 10 victories to their name.

There’s been over 2.5 goals in five of their last six clashes, and Rotherham have come out on top on five occasions in that same period.

pointer right
When they met earlier this campaign, it was a rout for the Millers at the New York Stadium, as Warne’s side won 5-1.

About the Venue

Priestfield Stadium was built in 1893, and Gillingham have been residents ever since. It has four all-seater stands, and a maximum capacity of 11,582.

Conclusion

This game will have a say on proceedings at both ends of the table, so a lively match is anticipated.

quotes
Gillingham will need help from elsewhere to survive - if they do their bit - and Rotherham could find themselves in any of the top three spots come 2.30pm on Saturday. It all makes for a very intriguing final day of League One action.
