Emirates FA Cup First Round Replay

MEMS Priestfield Stadium

Tuesday November 15th

Kick-Off, 7.45pm


Team News:

Max Ehmer could return to the starting XI, having not started the last three games. Ben Reeves, who returned in the loss to Northampton, is likely to feature again. Jake Turner will start in goal after Glenn Morris suffered an injury during the Northampton game.

Olly Lee is unlikely to be involved.


Adam Murray was hired as AFC Fylde manager on Monday. He could name an unchanged starting XI after their 2-1 win at Darlington on the weekend. Former Gills midfielder Curtis Weston will likely start in midfield.


Manager Comments:

Neil Harris - “Tuesday’s a must win game for us, let’s be honest. We have to be as professional as we were in the first game but better with the ball than we were in the first game.”


Adam Murray - "I’m delighted to be here at AFC Fylde and working with a really good group of players. 

“It’s a great challenge for myself and one that I am looking forward to.”


Previous Meetings:

The two clubs met for the first time in the original tie, where the game ended in a 1-1 draw. Mikael Mandron gave Gillingham the lead on the stroke of half-time as he volleyed Will Wright’s free-kick into the bottom corner from six yards.

Tom Walker equalised for the hosts with less than ten minutes remaining. Danny Rowe’s cross into the box was headed away as far as Walker, who thumped his volley across the goal and into the bottom corner.
