Sky Bet preview Saturday's game between Gillingham and Colchester

Gillingham are the 5/4 favourites for this one with Sky Bet but they will have to bounce back from a midweek reverse which saw them lose 3-0 at Chesterfield having gone 2-0 down inside 12 minutes.

They sit seven points above the drop zone but seven points from the play-offs so this could be a pivotal clash for the Kent side in terms of how the rest of the season plays out.

They are 10 points above their rivals, who sit second-bottom, and can be backed at 23/10 with the draw a 12/5 chance.

Their mood will have improved after a 2-0 win over basement dwellers Yeovil in midweek where Jacob Murphy impressed – he is 6/1 to open the scoring here with Cody McDonald 5/1 to do likewise for the hosts.

This looks evenly matched all things considered and a stalemate could be the eventual outcome.

Top tip: Back the draw at 12/5.
