Gills to visit the Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon (1.30pm).

22 August 2020

Championship opposition awaits Gills.

Gillingham will travel to Reading this afternoon for their third pre-season friendly.

Steve Evans has seen his players win both of their games so far as the Gills step up their preparations ahead of the 2020/21 Sky Bet League 1 season, which is set to kick-off on September 12 against Hull City, a week after the Carabao Cup tie against Southend United. 

The Royals, now under the management of former Welsh international Mark Bowen, finished 14th in the Championship last season.

Naturally, this weekend’s game is behind closed doors but the match will be streamed, free of charge, via YouTube or Facebook. Kick-off is at 1.30pm.

Gills defeated Colchester United 2-0 at the JobServe Community Stadium on Saturday before beating a Watford XI 3-1 at the club’s training ground on Tuesday afternoon.
