Team News:

Steve Lovell is expected to make a few changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Hartlepool on Saturday. Callum Reilly (groin) remains unavailable, but apart from him the manager has a fully fit squad to select from.

Tom Hadler, Connor Ogilvie, Josh Rees and Noel Mbo are all in line to start.

Manager Comments:

Steve Lovell - “There might be a couple of changes but I don’t think I will change it too much. I think the players will want to keep playing. We need to start getting back on track, regarding creating more.”

Previous Meetings:

The last time Gills played Crawley was in 2015 at The Broadfield Stadium for a league fixture; the hosts were beaten 2-1 courtesy of goals from Bradley Dack and Jermaine McGlashan. The reverse league fixture saw both teams leave with a point after a 1-1 draw.

The same season also saw the clubs compete in, what was then, the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. McGlashan and Doug Loft scored the goals in a 2-1 victory.  

In total both teams have played six league games against each other and three cup games. Overall the Gills have a lead with five wins to Crawley’s three.
