As for Oldham they have rated Jonathan Forte’s probability to play as 50/50 following an injury; however defender Adam Lockwood is definitely out for at least another few weeks.

Manager Comments:

Peter Taylor has had a free week to prepare his players and said on Thursday he was confident of the players getting a positive result.

He said: “They have players in good form and we have to be careful on that but I look at it as a typical League One fixture where we can go out and win the match.

“I believe we can go up there and win and that’s certainly how we are preparing.”

Lee Johnson told Oldham’s official website: “I've seen them play Yeovil twice this season and they've won both of their games. They are a good team and they are going to be a tough team to break down."

Previous Meetings:

The last time the two clubs met was at Boundary Park in February where Gillingham were desperately unlucky not to get anything following a 1-0 defeat.

Gary Harkins got the goal after 33 minutes and although Gills had a lot of the play in the second half they were unable to find a way through.

Earlier in the 13/14 season and the Latics emerged from Priestfield with another 1-0 win, this time the goal coming from Michael Petrasso in the first half.

In total the clubs have met on 41 occasions – of those Oldham have won 21 fixtures, Gills have 16 wins to their name and the other four matches have been draws.
