As for Blackpool they have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Manager Comments:

Justin Edinburgh – “They managed to get a win away at Scunthorpe on Saturday; their first win in 20 which I think is a bit of a blessing. Not too long ago they were a Premier League side, there are a lot of documented problems but I think we’ve got to push that to one side.”

Neil McDonald - "We've got some good players at this football club and they're all fighting for their place and all fighting for the shirt. I think we're getting better, they're getting to know each other and hopefully Scunthorpe helps us turn the corner.”

Previous Meetings:

The teams haven’t played each other since March 2007 when a 2-2 draw was the end result at MEMS Priestfield Stadium. Dean McDonald and Andrew Crofts were on target that day for the hosts as Gills clinched a point.

In total the clubs have met on 33 occasions. Blackpool have the upper hand in the head to head stats with 12 victories. Gillingham have won nine times with the remaining 12 fixtures being a draw.


Gillingham win – 4-7

Blackpool Win – 9/2

Special Bet: Doug Loft to score first in a 3-1 Gillingham victory – 90/1.
