All-time record v the Gills:

Matches: 44
Gills wins: 17
Draws: 14
Rotherham wins: 13Remember me? Justin Cochrane spent two indifferent months with the Gills on loan from Crewe last season and was released by the Railwaymen at the end of his contract, and has now joined up with the Millers where he will be hoping to live up to the promise he showed when he first broke into the Crewe side.Man to watch: Delroy Facey. Facey is a much-travelled striker and has scored goals wherever he has played and seems certain to hit the net on a pretty regular basis for the Millers.2006/07 prospects: Starting off on minus 10 points after their spell in administration, the Millers are facing an uphill task this season. However, their squad looks quite promising and if they shake the psychological worry of being bottom from the start of the season, they could not only avoid relegation, but do so with plenty to spare.
