Gillingham vs Milton Keynes Dons: Preview and Predictions

Gillingham vs Milton Keynes Dons
England – League One
Date: Thursday, 29 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: MEMS Priestfield Stadium (Gillingham).

Milton Keynes Dons look to have caught the last train in the battle for survival in the third class of the English football. The Dons are now only a single point shy of the safe zone after picking up seven out of possible nine in last three league outings. Can Dan Micciche’s men pull off another upset and keep the hot run of form going on Thursday evening when they travel 6o Kent to take on mid-table Gillingham?

The Gills have had a rollercoaster campaign in this term of League One. Their main problems are connected to the lack of consistency as they are literally capable of beating any opponent in the competition on the day, but at the same time losing to the rock-bottomed side without any troubles.

Steve Lovell’s side has pulled off a massive surprise two weeks ago when they took the spoils from Fratton Park beating Portsmouth 1-3, but only to suffer a defeat away at Bradford City last weekend. Overall, Gillingham have won one of last five league matches. They sit right in the middle of the league ladder and it seems they have nowhere to go from this perspective.

Gillingham vs Milton Keynes Dons: Head-to-head

The Gills lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of their 13th encounter against the Dons.

Nonetheless, we have to mention that Gillingham have been much more successful in the history of matches at MEMS Priestfield Stadium where they’ve won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1 of 6 matches with Milton.

Gillingham have won each of last three home meetings with against the Dons.

Gillingham vs Milton Keynes Dons: Prediction

Milton will hardly be in position to grab a three-pointer here given the poor tradition they have in matches at MEMS Priestfield Stadium as well as the fact that the Gills are unbeaten in last seven league affairs there.

Nonetheless, since four of these seven games have ended without a winner, and since the Dons have shown improvements in their game lately, we’ll shoot for the draw as the main betting option at the odds of 3.25.
