Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Priestfield Stadium will host Saturday’s League Two game between Gillingham and Salford, the two teams who were beaten by Wrexham and Mansfield respectively in their last league matches. The Gills dropped out of the playoffs berth, but a victory over Salford could see them regain their spot in top seven. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of Matchday 18. The Lions, on the other hand, are eager to get back on course as soon as possible.
Since Salford will go for a win in Saturday’s encounter as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Even though there are no fresh selection worries in the away team, talented midfielder Kelly N’Mai could sneak into the starting Xi. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier Gillingham defeated Salford 1-0, but we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score this time out.
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.

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.
