Gillingham vs West Ham Prediction
Gillingham marked their seventh unbeaten game in the series after the 1-1 draw at home with Portsmouth. They have lost only one of their last ten fixtures this season.
Besides that, the Gills have stayed unbeaten for the past eight home matches after the 0-3 defeat to Rotherham earlier.

West Ham will be coming after a 4-0 win at home against the likes of Bournemouth in their previous Premier League encounter. It marked their second win in the past five fixtures.
Even though West Ham has been struggling in the league, they are facing bigger names unlike Gillingham. Hence, based on league standards, West Ham will have the upper hand in the game.
On the road, the Hammers have lost five of their previous ten matches in their schedule. Also, their previous trip on the road against Crystal Palace earned a 2-1 defeat for West Ham.
As such, the host might have home ground advantage but they do not share an equal standard with West Ham. Hence, we can count on the Premier League contingents to perform better than League One squad.
So, West Ham has more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes and qualifying for the next round in the tournament.
