Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Gillingham will be aiming to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League Two when they take on Sutton in the League Two round 25. The Gills have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous three league matches and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to the negative trend. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but George Lapslie should return to the starting XI after the 26-year-old found the net in the Boxing Day defeat to Crawley.
Sutton, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon, but given their poor away record (1-2-8), we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Friday’s clash. As for the visiting side, Omar Sowunmi is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the last league fixture.
