Match Preview: Gillingham (H)

Final Fixture of the Season

3 May 2019

Blackpool will aim to maintain a top 10 finish and end the season on a high when facing Gillingham tomorrow.

The Seasiders, who recorded a victory against Fleetwood in their last outing on home soil, can make it back-to-back wins at Bloomfield Road for the first time since November. 

The visitors, under the caretaker stewardship of Mark Patterson, sit 15th in the division and are already assured of another season in Sky Bet League One. 

Team News: 

Blackpool will once again make a check on the availability of Matty Virtue, who missed out at Barnsley due to injury. Mark Howard, Donervon Daniels and Ollie Turton remain sidelined, however Jimmy Ryan could make an appearance after being an unused substitute at Oakwell. 

Gillingham could recall top scorer Tom Eaves to their starting line-up, with the 20-goal man having settled for a cameo role in the club's last two matches.
