GILLINGHAM V YEOVIL
Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Quarter Final
MEMS Priestfield Stadium
Tuesday November 10
Kick-Off, 715

Team News:

Bradley Dack and Josh Wright (suspension) return to the Gills squad after serving their respective bans.

Deji Oshilaja (knee) is likely to make his first appearance since the 1-1 draw with Peterborough in late August. Luke Norris remains out of action and is unlikely to be back until mid December.

As for Yeovil Jakub Sokolik and Artur Krysiak were both sent off in the game against Maidstone on Sunday so they will both sit out.

Josh Sheehan is away on international duty with the Welsh U21 side while George Thomas is cup tied having played against Yeovil for Coventry in the same competition.

Manager Comments:



Justin Edinburgh – “Tonight gives an opportunity to restore credibility and pride and when this group have been asked a question they have certainly come up with the answers and I expect that again.”

Paul Sturrock – (speaking after the club’s FA Cup win over Maidstone) "The way we got it will be a huge boost. Teams normally capitulate with nine men but this lot are made of stern stuff and I'm pleased they were still biting and scratching at the end, it would have been easy for them to keel over for another defeat."

Previous Meetings:

The last time the clubs met was in March of this year when a 2-2 draw was played out at Huish Park in Justin Edinburgh’s second away game as Manager. 

A controversial penalty was awarded to the hosts in the dying stages when Gills looked odds on to win the game.

In total the two clubs have only met on 12 occasions, Yeovil edging the statistics with five wins to three. The other four matches have been a draw. 

Betting:

Gillingham Win – 2/5
Draw – 7/2
Yeovil Win – 13/2

Special Bet: Aaron Morris to score first in a 2-0 win – 70/1.
