Gillingham vs. Blackpool

Priestfield Stadium



Gillingham V Pool

Blackpool look for first back-to-back league wins since in January down south at Gillingham.

Vital Quotes:

Ronnie Jepson 'We respect teams that come here and Blackpool have a very good away record. We saw them in midweek and it will be a very difficult game. The fans will get behind us, like they have done all season, and give the lads a lift. If we play to the level of performance that we are well capable of, then we can get something out of the game.'

Gillingham Team News:

Gillingham have one injury worry, Matty Jarvis has a groin strain and is the only doubt. Ben Chorley is suspended for the game and his place in the starting 11 will go to either Brent Sancho or Ian Cox.

Duncan Jupp, groin and midfielder Clint Easton, calf, are way of first team fitness.

The Gills have a good home record winning 10, drawing 1 and losing 6, compared to Pool`s 7, 5 and 5 respectively.

Player to watch: Matty Jarvis

If the winger is passed fit to play he will be the main to watch. The Middlesbrough born player started is career at the Gills and has made 78 league starts since November 2003. This season he`s hit six goals from wide and attracting interest recently from Nottingham Forrest.

Blackpool Team News:

Simon Grayson will most likely keep to the same 11 that brought home the three points on Tuesday night against Oldham. Andy Morrell did limp off after his shift on Tuesday but will be fine to lead the line. Paul Paul Rachubka will retain his place between the posts as will Danny Coid at left back.

Player to watch: Simon Gillett

After a few games to get back into the swing of things Gilly put in a fantastic performance on Tuesday night. Industrious play with a creative element Gillett is going to be a key player in the run in to the end of the season.
