Gillingham vs Oldham by Hassy

Gillingham
VS
Oldham
After two back to back away defeats Gillingham returned to home comforts with an emphatic 5-1 home win against Fleetwood Town which saw their manager Gary Alexander lose his job. Gillingham have won all their home games so far this season and despite their two away losses are third in the league and in some strong form.

 

Home really is where the heart is for The Gills, where they have scored an average of three goals per game and have only conceded 2 goals in the process. The also currently possess the second best attacking unit in the division and the third best defence in the league.

 

Justin Edinburgh is likely to keep faith with the same side against Oldham after his Gillingham side made an emphatic return to form during the week.

 

Ryan Jackson is a slight injury doubt however, after he was forced from the field early in the second half of the win over Fleetwood with a groin injury, while Deji Oshilaja and Ben Williamson are also nearing full fitness following lay-offs. Rory Donnelly impressed Edinburgh in the win, hitting two goals in just his fourth start of the campaign and is likely to retain his place, despite the continued comeback of Cody McDonald, who will likely remain on the bench. On-loan Jordan Houghton is another who took his opportunity against Fleetwood, and is likely to start again.

 

Oldham started the season in terrible form which saw their manager Gary Kelly lose his job. Since then however, they have appointed player David Dunn as temporary manager and he has overseen three draws in a row in his new role. In fact it is worth noting that Oldham have not lost away from home this season and have drawn all their away games. Worst still, Oldham have now gone eight games without a win, not ideal as you're heading to the best team in the league when they play at home.

 

Dunn will still be without striker Jonathan Forte an on-loan Celtic defender Eoghan O'Connell who are absent with knee and thigh injuries, respectively.

 

Despite not losing away from home so far this season, Oldham have conceded a goal in their last seven games and this will not be good enough against a potent attacking force at home.
