GILLINGHAM V DONCASTER ROVERS
Sky Bet League One
Saturday March 7
MEMS Priestfield Stadium
Kick-Off, 3pm

Team News:

Manager Justin Edinburgh has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s game.

Amine Linganzi (groin) is the only doubt after picking up an injury ahead of Tuesday’s 3-0 win at Swindon.

Bradley Garmston has returned to West Brom following the hamstring problem he sustained in last week’s defeat to Barnsley.

As for the visitors, Paul Keegan (knee) will miss the game and may require an operation after coming off against Preston.

Nathan Tyson, also a knee, took a knock at Deepdale but should be fine.

Long-term absentee Rob Jones (knee) played for the club’s development side midweek and could make a long awaited return.

Manager Comments:

Justin Edinburgh: “I expect a very open game, a good game but one that will be tough and we’ll have to put in the kind of performances against Sheffield United, MK Dons and Swindon to get something out of the game.

“I think it will be a better spectacle than the one we saw here last week.”

Paul Dickov: “It will be a tough game going down there [Gillingham], we know that. A lot of teams go down there and come unstuck but we know that if we play like we have done tonight [at Deepdale] we’ve got a chance.”

Previous Meetings:

The sides last met in December during the reverse league meeting when two second half strikes from Luke Norris earned the Gills their first away league win of the season.

In total the two teams have met on 56 occasions, of those the Gills lead the head to head statistics with 31 wins. Doncaster have won just 12 while the other 13 fixtures have been a draw.

Betting:

Gillingham win – 19/10
Draw – 5/2
Donny Win – 5/4.

Special Bet: Cody McDonald to score first in a 2-0 win – 50/1.
