We look ahead to Saturday's game

Sky Bet League One
Bramall Lane
Saturday September 27
Kick-Off, 3pm

Team News:

Peter Taylor has no fresh injury or suspension concerns ahead of Saturday’s game against the Blades.

Danny Kedwell (knee) and Stuart Nelson (thumb) continue to receive treatment; the latter could be available for selection as early as next week while Kedwell will be missing for at least a fortnight.

Previous Meetings:

The sides last met at MEMS Priestfield Stadium in February of this year when a first half strike from Conor Coady proved enough to seal all three points for the visitors in a 1-0 win.

The reverse fixture, one of Peter Taylor’s first games since taking charge for a second spell, saw the Gills record a 2-1 victory with Danny Kedwell and Cody McDonald bagging the goals in an impressive win.

The teams cannot be split on the head to head statistics with both sides having won eight games apiece of the 22 they have contested – the other six resulting in a draw.



Sky Bet, the title sponsor of the Football League, make Sheffield United the odds on favourites to win the game at 4/6, with a Gills victory priced at 4/1.

Luke Norris is 17/2 to score the first goal of the game, while Bradley Dack is 16/1 for the same bet.

Special Bet: Doug Loft to score first in a 2-1 Gillingham win – 150/1.
