Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Priestfield Stadium when Gillingham and Rotherham go head to head in the last round. Rotherham’s Championship promotion is at stake, while Gillingham will give 100% to avoid relegation to League Two. The hosts do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures. As a result, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the relegation strugglers. All Adshead, MacDonald, Lloyd, and Kelman are sidelined with injuries for the home team.
The Millers, on the other hand, were more than unfortunate not to beat Sunderland at Stadium of Light. Since MK Dons are breathing down their neck, we are positive that the visitors will go for a win in Saturday’s showdown. Anyhow, a lively contest is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Will Grigg remains in the recovery room, while Shane Ferguson is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Stuart O\'Keefe):
Stuart O’keefe is a an English footballer who started his senior career at Southend United. In August 2010 O’Keefe signed a one-year deal with Crystal Palace after impressing coach George Burley in a trial game against West Ham reserves.

After his loan spells with Milton Keynes Dons, Portsmouth and Plymouth Argyle, O’Keefe moved to Gillingham at the end of the 2018/2019 season. He made his League One debut with the club on August 3, 2019 in a 1-1 draw with Doncaster Rovers. His main position is central midfield, but he is used as both defensive and attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Rotherham):
Rotherham United are an English club that compete in the Championship. Rotherham United are located in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and they play their home games at New York Stadium and the capacity of the venue is 12,021.
The club was founded in 1925 as a merger between Rotherham County and Rotherham Town. The colour of Rotherham’s home kit was originally yellow and black, but nowadays they were red and white jerseys. The Millers made it to the FA Cup fifth round on two occasions (1952/1953, 1967/1968) and they have yet to play in the Premier League.
Rotherham United have won the Football League One twice (1950/1951, 1980/1981), but the club’s biggest success is participation in the 1960/1961 League Cup final. Sheffield United are regarded as Rotherham United’s fiercest rivals, but the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster could be considered Rotherham’s big rivals as well.
