Gillingham boss Peter Taylor believes it’s down to the players to show lessons have been learned from last weekend.
The Gills made a disastrous start at Rotherham, conceding three goals in the opening 35 minutes.
A trip to League 1’s basement side Notts County now awaits the Gills.
Neither Taylor, nor the travelling Gills fans, will want to witness another slow and costly start.
Taylor said: “You train all week, you name the team and you talk about being hard to play against but, once the boys cross that white line, you are keeping your fingers crossed that they are going to perform.
“We are in the position we are because we haven’t performed consistently well enough, whether it’s on the ball or off it and they are things we have to get better at. On Saturday we were too easy to play against.
“We should have done a lot more to stop Rotherham relaxing and playing their football, we should have done more but we didn’t and it was a bad start.”
