Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Priestfield Stadium when Gillingham and Doncaster face each other in the Championship round 37. The Gills quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Fleetwood, with the team beating both Swindon and Lincoln in the previous two league fixtures. Gillingham have been impressive in front of goal of late, and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. A man to watch in the home team will be Vadaine Oliver, who has found his goalscoring touch.
The Donny, on the other hand, were anything but impressive in a 3-0 loss at Oxford United. Doncaster Rovers continue to struggle on the road, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Gillingham City’s party at Priestfield Stadium. Despite failing to find the net in the midweek fixture, Nigeria international Fejiri Okenabirhie is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
