MATCH PREVIEW | GILLINGHAM (A)

14 January 2022

BURTON Albion will travel to Kent for their second successive away match when we take on Gillingham this Saturday (3pm kick-off).

FORM GUIDE

The Brewers head into the fixture after coming from behind to draw 1-1 at Cheltenham Town last week.

Gillingham are facing a tough run at the moment without a win in 12 matches. A 4-0 home defeat at the hands of Ipswich Town last weekend also saw Gills manager Steve Evans leave the club.

Steve Lovell and former Brewer Alex MacDonald have stepped in to take charge of the Gills.

HEAD 2 HEAD

The two sides share an identical record when it comes to head-to-head clashes. The sides have faced off 16 times since Albion’s promotion to the EFL with six wins each and four draws shared.

The last two games between the clubs have ended in 1-1 draws with the latest coming earlier this season at the Pirelli Stadium. A Vadaine Oliver opener for Gillingham was cancelled out by a Kane Hemmings equaliser to ensure the game ended level.

BREWERS TEAM NEWS  

New signings William Kokolo and Gassan Ahadme will be available and in the squad for tomorrow’s trip to Gillingham, as confirmed by Brewers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in his pre-match press conference.

Hasselbaink has also confirmed that the Brewers have a few general knocks and niggles and that any such players will be assessed tomorrow before the game.

GILLINGHAM TEAM NEWS

Goalkeeper Jamie Cumming has been recalled from his loan with Gillingham by Chelsea so will no longer be available. Pontus Dahlberg has replaced Cumming, as the Swedish goalkeeper joins on loan from Watford.

Gillingham have also re-signed striker Charlie Kelman - who made eight appearances for the Gills earlier in the season - on another loan deal from QPR.

MATCH OFFICIALS

The referee for tomorrow’s game at Priestfield Stadium will be refereed by Thomas Bramall. The assistant referees are Adrian Waters and Robert Hyde, with the Fourth Official being Sam Purkiss.

Bramall has shown 64 yellow cards and five reds in the 21 games he has officiated so far this season.
