Only a few shorts months ago Gillingham were clearly struggling in their league campaign and the decision was taken to dispense with the services of Adrian Pennock. Peter Taylor took the reins in a temporary capacity before Steve Lovell took charge as caretaker. His appointment was met with success on the pitch and following an excellent spell during which the Gills won four of their seven games under their new boss, Lovell was appointed as manager at least until the end of the season.

Since Lovell's appointment, the Medway club have slowly crept up the League One table and they now sit slap-bang in the middle of the division. They are hardly likely to make a challenge on the play-off places, however they are far enough away from the relegation zone to put such concerns out of their minds. A mid-table finish would be pretty satisfactory following their poor start to the season although following an excellent run during which they have dropped just four points in their last seven league matches, they will be looking to continue the momentum when they face Fleetwood this weekend.

Fleetwood Town sit just one point adrift of Gillingham heading into this weekend meeting and while promotion to the Championship is the main aim of this ambitious club, any such move is very unlikely to happen this term. Fleetwood's form on home soil has been key to their lack of success this season with the Cod Army picking up just two points from their last five games in front of their home fans - this poor run including a 2-0 defeat to Gillingham last month. Indeed given that the Gills have won their last three league games, we envisage the hosts maintaining the momentum and sending the visitors home with nothing for their troubles on Saturday afternoon.
