Our rallying call to Gillingham and Swindon supporters

Swindon Town Team News:

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 Team News:

Gillingham currently sit 15th in the League One table after a 1 all draw with Tranmere over the weekend.

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

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.
