📊 Form Guide

Gillingham will be wanting a better result here after the 1-0 EFL Cup loss in their previous game against Stoke City.

Stoke City had 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Tyrese Campbell (37') scored for Stoke City.

It has been seldom in recent times where Gillingham haven’t conceded. In fact, The Gills have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 7 goals along the way. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this next game, of course.

Leading up to this clash, Gillingham:

  • have not lost a league tie with Blackpool in their previous 3 matches.
  • have not won at home in their last 2 matches in the league.

Blackpool will go into this encounter following on from a 2-0 League One win with the downing of Swindon Town in their most recent fixture.

The only player to score from Blackpool was CJ Hamilton (41', 47').

A sequence of steadfast performances by the Blackpool defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their past 6 fixtures in total. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 3.

Looking at their past form shows that Blackpool:

  • have not been beaten by Gillingham in away games against them for the last 3 league games.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 14 matches in the league. Their travelling supporters must be so depressed.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Looking at the statistics for their head to head meetings stretching back to 21/11/2017, there has been little between the sides with Gillingham winning 2 of those games, Blackpool 2 and 2 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.

An aggregate of 18 goals were produced between them in this period, with 9 of them for The Gills and 9 coming from The Seasiders. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.

The last league game between these clubs was League One match day 33 on 11/02/2020 and the score finished Blackpool 2-3 Gillingham.

The referee was Darren Handley.

🗞️ Team News: Gillingham

Gillingham boss Steve Evans doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.

We are thinking that The Gills look set to use the 4-2-3-1 formation for this one, beginning the first half with Neil Etheridge, Kristian Pedersen, George Friend, Harlee Dean, Maxime Colin, Adam Clayton, Ivan Sunjic, Jérémie Bela, Jon Toral, Ivan Sanchez and Lucas Jutkiewicz.

📋 Team News: Blackpool

Owing to a completely injury-free group ready to go, Blackpool boss Neil Critchley doesn’t have any fitness worries at all before this match.

There’s a good chance that The Seasiders will likely utilise a 4-4-2 system with a starting lineup of Jamal Blackman, Wes Harding, Michael Ihiekwe, Angus MacDonald, Joe Mattock, Chiedozie Ogbene, Shaun MacDonald, Jamie Lindsay, Kieran Sadlier, George Hirst and Michael Smith.

🧠 Prediction

In our opinion, Blackpool and Gillingham are both capable of scoring here.

Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. We’re therefore expecting a very close game with a 1-1 draw when the full-time whistle blows.
