Given there are three divisions separating the two teams, we have reasons to expect a one-sided contest on Sunday afternoon at Arbour Park. The visitors will head into this in high spirits following a 1-2 victory over Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening at Memorial Stadium. Elliott List and Callum Reilly found the back of the net on the occasion for Steve Lovell’s squad.

It was an important victory which pushed Gillingham to 18th place in the League One standings. They also ended a dismal three-loss streak with success at Memorial Stadium.

Slough Town vs Gillingham: Head-to-head

The two teams did not have the opportunity to play each other in the past.

Slough Town vs Gillingham: Prediction

Slough Town head into this as heavy underdogs. They’ve been struggling to keep things quiet in the sixth division of English football of late. The Rebels currently hold the 13th position in the National League South and they fell 2-3 at home to the rock-bottomed Weston-super-Mare last weekend.

The Rebels made it to the second round thanks to the easy draw which has set up a meeting with National League side Sutton United for them. James Dobson bagged the late 81st-minute equalizer in the replay at Arbour Park to secure penalties which sent the team to the next round after nine series.

Gillingham, on the other side, needed extra-time goals to dispatch Hartlepool United (National League) 3-4 on the road in the opening round. They got super lucky as striker Tom Eaves bagged the 96th-minute equalizer at Victoria Park to send the game into extra-time.

We expect a much easier job for the visitors who should exploit Slough’s defensive holes to the max on Sunday.
