Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Highbury Stadium pits together Fleetwood Town and Gillingham, the two teams who sit in the middle of the table ahead of Matchday 21. The Fishermen are a team with two faces. They recorded a win in each of their previous three home games in the League One, but their away record is anything but good. Anyhow, Fleetwood, who aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth, are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s football match against Gillingham.
The Gills, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sunderland. Steve Evans’ troops are stuck in the middle of the standings, but they are only seven points behind Coventry City ahead of the trip to Lancashire. Considering that Fleetwood Town are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Gillingham):
Founded back in 1893, Gillingham FC are an English club that compete in the League One. The Gills are well known for their blue shirts with black stripes, but they wear white shirts with a little yellow and blue, and yellow shirts when playing on the travels.
Priestfield Stadium is the club’s home ground, with the venue holding up to 11,582 spectators. Gillingham City have been playing at the stadium since the club’s foundation. Speaking of the club’s main rivals, over the years the Gills have built up a rivalry to Swindon Town. However, it has to be noted that Swindon fans do not consider Gillingham their biggest rivals.
Former goalkeeper Roy Hillyard is the Gillingham City player with the most appearances. The English shot-stopper played for Gillingham City from 1974 to 1991, making 655 appearances for the club. Brian Yeo is the team’s all-time top scorer, netting 149 goals in 387 appearances for the club from 1963 to 1975.
