Gillingham to win both halves

We are backing Gillingham to win this game. They have been the better side in previous encounters, winning thrice, drawing twice and losing once against Cheltenham. Moreover, we expect the hosts to exploit the struggling defence of the visitors in this game. Cheltenham conceded an average of 2 goals in the last three games while the hosts have leaked an average of 1 goal in as many matches.

Both teams to score

We are backing both teams to find the net in this fixture. While there were goals on both sides in only two out of the previous six meetings, these teams have been inconsistent in recent matches. The visitors leaked eight goals in the last five games while the hosts conceded six goals in as many games.

Over 2.5

More than two goals is another plausible outcome in this fixture. Our second pick is also against the H2H record which shows that only two out of six games had more than two goals. Unreliable defence on both sides is why we think this is a plausible outcome and it comes with great odds on Betfred.

Match Preview: Can Gillingham Overcome Poor Scoring Form to Beat Cheltenham?

Gillingham and Cheltenham will meet for the first time in the EFL Cup fixture. These teams previously played against each other six times in League Two and are now in League One. Find out more in our match preview.

Gillingham

Gillingham kicked off the new season with a 1-1 draw in League One. They also bagged another draw of 2-2 draw against Crawley Town in the first round of the EFL Cup fixture. They have 1W, 1D, and 1L in the last three league games and a better record of 3W, 2D and 1L in previous meetings. All those meetings were in league two.

Cheltenham

The visitors are wary of a poor record against Gillingham in previous encounters and hope for a better result in the first-ever Cup meeting. The visiting manager, Michael Duff, averages 1.64 points since taking over back in September 2018. But can they bank on the manager’s experience to get a win here? The visitors have shown signs of inconsistency in the last five games, having failed to register back to back wins. They come to this game with 2W, 1D and 2L in the last five matches.
