THREE TO WATCH: GILLINGHAM

13 April 2017

Take a look at the potential threats in the ranks of Gillingham ahead of Friday's encounter.

#44 - Josh Wright - Midfielder

The twenty-seven-year-old is Gillingham's leading goalscorer this campaign, with twelve goals to his name.

Well versed to life in the Football League, the midfielder's previous clubs include Leyton Orient, Crawley, Millwall, Scunthorpe and Brentford.

Wright had a short spell on loan at Preistfield during the 2008/09 season, where he made eight appearances between March and the end of the season.

This campaign has been Wright's most prolific season in front of goal, with the midfielder scoring ten goals since the turn of the year.

The midfielder was last on the scoresheet during Gillingham's narrow defeat to MK Dons at the beginning of the month.

#10 - Cody McDonald - Striker 

Leading the line as Gillingham's highest scoring striker, the thirty-year-old has ten goals in all competitions this season.

Now in his fourth full season at Priestfield, McDonald has registered over one-hundred-and-twenty appearances, scoring just shy of fifty goals.

This season McDonald opened his account against Southend in the EFL Cup in August.

The striker scored in consecutive games towards the end of February, helping Gillingham defeat both Swindon Town and Bury.

His last strike came against MK Dons back at the start of April.

#6 - Adedeji Oshilaja - Defender

On loan from Cardiff City, the twenty-three-year-old is now in his third loan spell at Priestfield.

The defender has experienced spells on loan at AFC Wimbledon, Newport County and Sheffield Wednesday and rejoined Gillingham on a season-long loan back in August. Throughout the 2016/17 season, Oshilaja has been a constant figure for the Gills, making thirty-six appearances.

The defender has two goals this season, scoring in consecutive games against Shrewsbury and Bradford back in February.
