MATCH PREVIEW: BRISTOL ROVERS vs GILLINGHAM

15 October 2016

We take a quick look at today's opponents!

Bristol Rovers go into today's game looking to pick up the three points after last weekend's International break.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to secure a win as they look to climb the Sky Bet League One table.

Team News: Rovers have a full squad to pick from. 

Darrell's View:”We know what Gillingham can do, they have some fantastic technical players and we're going to need to be at the top of our game.

"The break would have done the boys some good so we need to finish the game today with all three points."

Opposition: Today's opponents Gillingham currently sit in 14th place in the SkyBet League One table with 15 points from their 12 games this season. Justin Edinburgh's men have been stuttering of late only picking up one point in their last three outings with a 3-3 draw at Chesterfield. Following that the Gills suffered defeats to AFC Wimbledon and Oldham Athletic so will be looking to bounce back at the Memorial Stadium today.     
                  
Dangerman - Bradley Dack: The Gills midfielder has been the heart of the team for several seasons now. Coveted by many clubs in the Championship, Dack remained at Gillingham in the summer and has two goals to his name this season. Rovers will have to stop this man in the middle of the park if they want to cut off the supply to Gillingham's dangerous front men.
     
Last Time Out: Rovers tasted defeat last time out against Gillingham as goals from Chris Whelpdale and Deon Burton wrapped up all three points for the Gills back in January 2013.             

Tickets: Supporters will be able to pay on the day for today's fixture.
