Match Preview

Keeping an eye on King Gillingham will assess centre-back Simon King ahead of the visit of Rotherham. King was recalled as part of a completely new back four for Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Port Vale although it remains to be seen whether he can handle two games in four days as he continues to manage an ankle injury. Youngster Connor Essam is likely to keep his place at the heart of defence after making his full league debut, with manager Andy Hessenthaler - who freshened up his XI with a total of five changes - pleased with his new-look side's performance at Vale Park despite the loss. The versatile Charlie Lee has recovered from a knee problem and is available, but defenders Andy Frampton and Matt Fish (both ankle) as well as goalkeeper Ross Flitney (knee) continue to miss out. Oliver Lee is still waiting for his Gills debut having remained as an unused substitute at the weekend, while it remains to be seen whether Matt Lawrence or Dennis Oli will make the matchday 16 having been made available for loan. Rotherham manager Andy Scott could name the same side for the fourth successive game at Gillingham on Tuesday. The Millers have been undefeated in their last three encounters, collecting seven points which have propelled them right back into play-off contention. Scott hinted he would be tempted to freshen things up following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Burton, with on-loan striker Shaun Harrad one player who could be struggling with fatigue. But Scott would be loathe to drop Harrad, with the Bury man scoring three goals in his first three appearances in a Millers shirt, though 15-goal top scorer Lewis Grabban will be chomping at the bit to return to the starting XI. Midfielder Danny Schofield will return to the squad after missing the trip to the Pirelli Stadium with a tooth problem, meaning Gareth Evans (back) and Luke Foster (knee) are the only occupants of the treatment room. The Millers have a dreadful record at the Priestfield, having not won on their last nine visits, a run stretching back to 1988.

Match Report

Grabban denied in draw Rotherham striker Lewis Grabban was denied the chance to inflict a sixth straight league defeat onto Gillingham after his first-half strike was ruled out in the goalless draw at Priestfield. The 24-year-old former Millwall front-man thought he had opened the scoring for the Millers after 38 minutes, only for referee Andy Woolmer to rule it out for handball and book him in the process. Gillingham had chances to go in front before then but neither Jo Kuffour or Curtis Weston could convert, while Grabban was also wasteful after the break. With just 15 minutes on the clock Paolo Gazzaniga's goal-kick left Michael Raynes confused, with the Rotherham defender directing the ball to Kuffour - but he smashed his one-on-one shot wide. Weston scuffed a rebound agonisingly wide moments later after Rotherham goalkeeper Rhys Taylor smothered Gavin Tomlin as he burst through before Grabban's disallowed effort. Grabban was in action again after 64 minutes but could only head across goal, while strike partner Alex Revell couldn't test Gazzaniga either as it end goalless.
