Gillingham vs Dagenham & Redbridge – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Gillingham and Dagenham & Redbridge drew 1-1 when they met at the end of November. Can the Gills avoid an embarrassing FA Cup exit in Thursday’s replay? Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Dagenham & Redbridge Double Chance

National League side Dagenham & Redbridge came within seconds of beating Gillingham in last month’s FA Cup round two tussle and they played well enough that evening to make them the backable side in the double chance market in this week’s replay. Daggers have lost just three of their last 15 fixtures in all competitions and they could be worth siding with again here.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams rattled the net at the Chigwell Construction Stadium when Dagenham & Redbridge hosted Gillingham last month and that was the 11th time in 16 matches involving Daggers that featured action at both ends. With a lucrative third round tie at home to Leicester City on offer for the winner, we expect both teams to push for victory on Thursday and goals could be registered both ends again.

Correct Score – 1-1 Draw

Dagenham & Redbridge and Gillingham were deadlocked in their first encounter after their FA Cup clash finished 1-1 and that is a scoreline that both teams have favoured of late. Since October, both teams have been involved in four 1-1 draws each and at meaty odds, backing the same outcome on Thursday in the correct score market appeals.

Gillingham vs Dagenham & Redbridge News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Thursday’s FA Cup collision between Gillingham and Dagenham & Redbridge below.

Gillingham

First-choice keeper Glenn Morris is out injured for Gillingham while attacker Callum Harriott is unavailable. Defender David Tutonda and midfielder Olly Lee missed the weekend’s 3-0 loss to Salford and both players remain doubtful here.

Dagenham & Redbridge

Dagenham & Redbridge boss Daryl McMahon used a 3-5-2 formation in last month’s first cup clash with Gillingham, so expect Daggers to be deployed in a similar shape on Thursday. Last month’s goal-scorer Justin Walker will hope to make another match-defining contribution in the replay.
