Cheltenham to Win

Cheltenham are aiming to finish in League One’s top half this season and their strong form at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium could be enough to push Town towards their target. Michael Duff’s charges have won an impressive five of their last six assignments on home soil and Town’s knack for producing the goods at home means they are worth backing to beat relegation-threatened Gillingham on Friday.

Under 2.5 Goals

Fourth from bottom Gillingham have struggled to string results together on the road this season, though the Gills have at least been able to keep the margin of defeat slim in a good chunk of their away fixtures. In fact, seven of their last nine away matches have produced under 2.5 goals, with two of their last three contests as the visiting team finishing 1-0 in the host’s favour. Another game of few chances is anticipated when Gillingham visit Cheltenham on Friday and bettors are advised to stick to the unders line as a consequence.

Alfie May to Score Anytime

With four goals in his last six appearances and 21 strikes in 42 League One runouts overall this term, Alfie May is always a strong option in the anytime goalscorer stakes and the Cheltenham hitman could add to his impressive tally against Gillingham. May found the net when Town beat the Gills 2-0 in late November and the 28-year-old can breach the same defence on Friday.

Cheltenham vs Gillingham Match Preview and Team News


Kion Etete, Conor Thomas, Charlie Colkett, Ben Williams and Dan N’Lundulu are all out injured for Cheltenham this week, though Town didn’t need any of their absentees to beat Portsmouth 1-0 on Saturday. Michael Duff’s side are a formidable force on their own patch and only five clubs have left the Jonny-Rocks Stadium with maximum points this term.


Danny Lloyd, Dan Adshead and Alex MacDonald are all out for Gillingham, while doubts remain over the availability of Daniel Phillips, Harvey Lintott, Gerald Sithole and Mustapha Carayol. Stuart O’Keefe and Robbie McKenize were fit enough to feature in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Wycombe, however, and both players should be involved again on Friday.
