Gillingham vs Rotherham
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 17th April 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Priestfield Stadium (Gillingham).
Gillingham is a team that done well for the majority of the season and could have been in the mix for play-off spots. But no wins from last 6 matches pushed them 12 points outside the zone. Besides, they are 16th in the table and are more close to the drop zone, a 7 point gap.
Rotherham drew Wigan on the weekend, a match that was disappointing for punters. We expected to see some goals in the game as well as Wigan winning it at the end, but it was not there to be.
The Millers are sitting at fourth in the league and are out of automatic promotion race. At the same time, they could drop out of the top six if they fail to win in 2 of their remaining 4 matches in the regular season.

Gillingham vs Rotherham: Prediction
Rotherham blew hot and cold in recent travels and could face a stern test against a Gillingham side that mastered the art of sitting back and squeeze out stalemates in their home games.
Points have become extremely valuable for both sides and this is a match no one wants to lose and therefore expect conservative approach from both managers.
So, do not hesitate and back a full-time draw along with under 2.5 goals for this English League One fixture.
