Gillingham vs Colchester by Hassy
Despite Gillingham losing their last home match they come into the match off the back of decent form. The 0-3 loss to Burton could be forgiven because the match was 0-0 at HT despite Gillingham having a man sent off after only 37 minutes. That defeat was their first home loss of the season and I am certain they'll be keen to get back to winning ways on their own patch. They already have eight wins from eleven home games this season and only Peterborough have scored more goals in the division.
Gillingham captain Doug Loft might have to make do with a place on the bench for the clash with Colchester United on Monday. Loft returned from suspension against Swindon on Boxing Day but remained as an unused substitute for Justin Edinburgh's side.
Striker Cody McDonald faces a few weeks out after damaging his foot at Millwall earlier this month.
Colchester United sit rock bottom of the away table after accumulating just seven points from a possible 33 on the road. New manager Kevin Keen failed to halt the terrible run of results after seeing his side lose 0-2 in the Essex derby against Southend United.
Colchester have lost their last 8 games on the bounce and The U's have not managed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 13 games. In fact Colchester conceded at least one goal in 100% of their away games which doesn't not bode well at all when facing one of League 2's most attacking sides.
Good news for the visiting side; They could have Owen Garvan and Marvin Sordell back in action after the pair were absent for the defeat to Southend on Boxing Day.
Garvan was hampered by an ankle problem and illness, while Sordell was struggling with a knee injury. But the pair may return to the squad at Priestfield if they come through Sunday's training session unscathed.
Ex-Blackpool goalkeeper Elliot Parrish was named between the sticks for Kevin Keen's first match in charge and will be hoping to keep his spo
Gillingham boast the league's second best home form and host a side who have the worst away form in the league. Colchester United are suffering an abysmal run of results having failed to accrue a solitary point in League One since October.
The hosts already boast a massive 24 point gap over their opponents and they face a Colchester team that have lost their last six away games on the spin. Therefore, I cannot see anything other than a banker home win today.
