Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Priestfield Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Gillingham and Crawley Town, the two teams who are almost level on points in the League Two standings. The Gills aim to move closer to the playoffs places and they should take advantage of Crawley’s poor form. Both Nichols and Nadesan are pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Mansfield Town and AFC Wimbledon in the previous two league matches. As Crawley Town have been struggling at the back of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Midfielder Liam Kelly limped off with injury in the defeat to AFC Wimbledon, with Ronan Darcy likely to replace him in the starting XI.
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.
