The side are looking for a repeat of their last home game, a 2-0 win over Macclesfield, to take into the second leg of the JPT area final game with Scunthorpe next Tuesday.
Mark Robins however needs to focus his squad on gaining three more points to haul away from the League Two basement.
The Gills have been fairly impressive since demolishing Rotherham 4-0 at the Priestfield back in December, and are pushing for promotion in the latter stages of the campaign.
They arrive in ninth spot but on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Bradford last week, and without Mark McCamon and Albert Jarrett who are short of match fitness.
Curtis Weston returns after a one game ban and Alan Julian is fit again and will travel North, if the weather deems a now boggy pitch playable. Barry Fuller is still out with pneumonia.
With Rotherham's training disrupted heavily due to bad weather at the Keepmoat and also at Derby's facilities which the team tried to use, it's a case of getting on with it for Robbo.
Jamie Clarke, who arrived two weeks ago, may finally get to make his debut upfront.
If you missed our report last week, Richie Barker has had surgery on his knee injury and misses the rest of the season.
Robins has no other fresh injury concerns with Steve Brogan continuing to make steady progress behind the scenes.
I miss the game as i'm off for a weekned in Newcastle on the lash, so i'll leave you in the capable hands of Bigrich and Dukey for tomorrow's headlines, the post match reactions and messageboard debate!
