Gillingham to Win

Even though Gillingham is still looking for their first win in the league, they are the favourites in this game according to bookies. And we agree with them since Gillingham is the better team on paper and they should be able to finally win a game against the newly-promoted Morecambe at home.

Gillingham and Morecambe to Draw at Half Time

While we expect Gillingham to win the game, we also expect to see a draw at half time since this will probably not be an easy win for the home team who’s been struggling this season.. In addition to this, all three games played by Gillingham this season in League One have been even at half time, so they are used to playing close matches.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Three of the four matches played by Gillingham in all competitions have ended with both teams scoring, while the same is true for two of the four matches played by Morecambe in League One and EFL Cup. With that in mind, our prediction is for both teams to score in this game as well.

Gillingham vs Morecambe preview: Can Gillingham win their first game?

Neither team is playing great at the moment, but the home team is doing worse since they are without a win yet. So, let’s take a closer look at the teams.

Gillingham

The team that finished 10th in the last season of League One didn’t stat the new season in their best form. Gillingham failed to win a game in the first three rounds, drawing twice and losing once in the process. On the bright side, Gillingham surprised many when they eliminated Blackburn from the EFL Cup despite playing away from home.

Morecambe

After missing on the direct promotion by just one point, Morecambe managed to regroup and secure their spot in League One through the playoffs. It wasn’t an easy path though, especially at Wembley in the final match against Newport in which Morecambe pulled off a 1-0 win only after extra time. In any case, Morecambe started the season in League One with a win and a draw and they also eliminated Blackburn in the EFL Cup. So, it’s been a great start for them and their fans.
