Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After failing to win the previous three league fixtures, Gillingham will be looking to get back on course when they take on Fleetwood Town on Matchday 38. The Gills are eight points behind the play-offs berth in the League One standings, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win situation for the home side. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Mikael Mandron, who scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the weekend.
Fleetwood, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Portsmouth in a postponed fixture at Fratton Park on Tuesday evening. The Cods extended their unbeaten run to twelve games, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of Saturday’s football match. Considering that Gillingham are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw this time out.
This game is postponed.
