Gillingham vs AFC Wimbledon
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 8 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: MEMS Priestfield Stadium, Gillingham.
Gillingham and Wimbledon are both struggling badly to find the right form at the start to the new League One campaign.
Can any of the two sides catch a breakthrough on Saturday when they take on each other in the Matchday No 7 clash at MEMS Priestfield Stadium?
The Gills actually got off to a dream start with back-to-back wins over Accrington Stanley and Burton Albion, but they inexplicably fell in form taking just one point from four following games.
The main reason for such slide can be found in the lack of meticulousness at the back since Steve Lovell’s men were very easy to break down of late.
The team shipped nine goals in last four league games (more than two per match) and they continued with such trend on Tuesday evening conceding four in a demolishing defeat to Portsmouth away at Fratton Park in the EFL Trophy clash.
Gillingham vs AFC Wimbledon: Head-to-head
- The Gills have a poor H2H record with just 1 win in 8 matches against Wimbledon.
- Four of these eight ties ended without a winner (as many as three of four in matches at MEMS Priestfield Stadium).
- Both teams were on the scoreline in four of last five head to head outings.
Gillingham vs AFC Wimbledon: Prediction
We’d not be surprised to see goals galore and the continuation of a high-scoring head to head trend here.
The visitors were also very easy to break down of late and they’ll come into this with eight goals conceded in last three league defeats.
In Neal Ardley’s defense, the opposition did include the likes of Walsall, Sunderland and Burton Albion who are all in fine form at the start of the new season.
Based on everything written above, backing goals at both ends is a must here. You can have such scenario at the 1.70 odds. The alternative bet is Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.00 odd.
