Preview: Gills Up Next For Town

5 February 2016

Sponsored by

TOWN make the trip to Gillingham in League 1 on Saturday. Kick-off is at 3pm.

The visitors will be hoping to register their first win against the high-flying Gills since the days of Lou Macari - Swindon's last win at the Priestfield was back in December 1986 when goals from Peter Coyne, Mark Jones and a Karl Elsey own goal secured a 3-1 win.


The Kent side have been one of the division's pace-setters this season and currently sit third in League 1, three points off the leaders, Burton Albion. Justin Edinburgh guided his side to a 3-1 win over Swindon on Boxing Day despite Jon Obika's opener. After a sequence of four consecutive wins over the Christmas/New Year period, the Gills have lost two of their last four games including a 1-0 defeat at Blackpool last Saturday.


Town had to come from behind twice on their last visit to Kent to earn a point in a 2-2 draw. Andy Williams cancelled out Danny Kedwell's opener before Rapha Rossi-Branco's late cross was turned into his own net by Stephen Bywater. Click here to watch the highlights.

The SAS Travel coaches depart the County Ground at 10am.
