Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Wrexham welcome Gillingham to their Racecourse Ground on day 17 of the new League Two campaign. Wrexham are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in all competitions and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach against the Gills. Paul Mullin has found his goal-scoring touch of late and we are positive that the 29-year-old forward is going to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
The visitors, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Newport County in their last league match and even though there are no fresh injury worries in the away team, we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing hosts. In their last encounter at the venue Wrexham defeated Gillingham 1-0 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. You should know that the two teams have not met in a competitive match since May 2000.
