In this match, AFC Wimbledon would be disappointed if they were not to put a goal past this Gillingham team, although that may not quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We’re expecting both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for Gillingham by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. It really should be an interesting one.
