Our rallying call to Gillingham and Swindon supporters

Player to watch: Jerel Ifil

Has been solid at the back since the departure of Andy King. This will be a stern test for the former Watford Man as he look's to make up for Town's 3-0 beating at Priestfield, to which the defenders had an off day.

Gillingham have also only won 1 game away from Priestfield this season and have a league low 9 games away from home this season.

Player to watch: Darren Byfield/Michael Flynn

The striker who has 7 goals in all competitions this season, scored against Swindon a month ago. Midfielder Michael Flynn also scored against Swindon after joining Gillingham from Wigan in the summer. When playing for Welsh side Barry Town Flynn scored a respectable 40 goals over 2 seasons.

Match Facts & Stats

Gillingham beat Swindon Town 3-0 when the two teams met in January. However the game was overshadowed by the mindless hooliganism outside of the ground to which gave a black eye to both clubs.


Match Prediction:

Swindon Town 3 Gillingham 1, The fans and the players will be well up for this one. We will be optomistic but when chances to succeed come up Swindon tend to slip up.
