Match Preview: Gillingham (A)

Seasiders Chase Fourth Consecutive Victory

20 April 2018

Fixture | Gillingham vs Blackpool – Date | Saturday 21 April – Venue | Priestfield Stadium

Blackpool head to Gillingham tomorrow in search of their fourth consecutive victory in Sky Bet League One. 

Three points would mathematically guarantee safety for The Seasiders, who achieved promotion back to this level in May. 

Last Time Out: 

A dramatic, late goal from Armand Gnanduillet saw Blackpool come back from behind to beat Fleetwood Town 2-1 at Bloomfield Road. The 94th minute header came just six minutes after Viv Solomon-Otabor had levelled up the scores against the club's Fylde Coast neighbours. 

The Gills lost out 1-0 at home to Rotherham United in midweek, with Will Vaulks on target for the visitors. 

Team News: 

Armand Gnanduillet will push for a starting place after his impact off the bench last weekend, while Kelvin Mellor and Jim McAlister are hoping to return to the squad following recent returns to training. 

Lee Martin is back available for Gillingham after serving a four-match suspension, though Gabriel Zakuani misses out. 

Betting Odds: 

Gillingham Win - 21/10
Draw - 21/10
Blackpool Win - 7/5
