Team News: Gillingham
From a largely full-strength squad, there’s just a single fitness problem for the Gillingham gaffer Neil Harris to be concerned with. Ashley Maynard-Brewer (Shoulder Injury) misses out for this game.
In our view, Gillingham have the firepower to get a goal against this AFC Wimbledon lineup, although that is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss.
We’re expecting a narrow 2-1 win for AFC Wimbledon by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Could easily see this go either way.
