Gillingham vs Doncaster Best Predictions and Top Odds

Gillingham will be a bit wary ahead of this matchup, they still have a decent advantage in front of other League Two strugglers, but things could get complicated if they don't get some wins.

Under 2.5 Goals

The most logical pick for this Gillingham vs Doncaster prediction. The home team is the worst efficient team in the league, they have scored only 27 goals which is, by far, the lowest mark in the competition. They are struggling to get goals when they need them the most. It is not a surprise, because of their attacking weaknesses that they have the most under 2.5 goals matches in the league, 31 in total. They are one of only two teams whose matches are producing less than two goals per game. Gillingham had three matches from their past five with fewer than three goals scored while Doncaster had three in a row. For the season, the visiting team had 22 ‘under' games. The last three h2h battles between these teams ended with only a goal per game.

Gillingham to Win

This is a tricky proposition for Gillingham vs Doncaster tie. The visitors have had a tough time lately going without a win in four matches. They are 12 points away from a possible top-seven finish, and with only seven matches to go, the change is unlikely. For Gillingham, the win-now mode is on, they are somewhat safe from relegation with a nine-point advantage before the first team behind the line, but with another win or two, the rest of the season would be smooth sailing. Gillingham won three out of their last five encounters. From their last five h2h matches, each team won twice while a single game ended in a draw.

Team News, Preview, and Gillingham vs Doncaster Lineups

Gillingham

The home team's season has been below average, they were hoping for a mid-table finish, but the club will have to be happy with the fact that they won't be relegated at this point. With seven remaining games, coach Neil Harris will have to challenge his players to prove they belong on the team, and some of them should find themselves on the outside looking in for a job next season. The team is in good health at the moment.

Potential lineup: Morris, Alexander, Ehmer, Masterson, McKenzie, MacDonald, Dieng, Williams, O'Brien, Abrahams, Nichols.

Doncaster

A month ago Doncaster players believed they have a chance to fight for a top-seven finish which would give them a shot at promotion playoffs. That won't happen after they lost three matches from their last four with a single draw tucked in between. Right now, there is too big of a point differential from top-seven contenders to get Doncaster a proper chance.

Potential lineup: Mitchell, Nelson, Anderson, Olowu, Rowe, Close, Ravenhill, Seaman, Hurst, Molyneux, Miller.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Tom Nichols

Gillingham doesn't have an outstanding player this season, but one that comes close is Tom Nichols. The center-forward has been his team's best scorer with six goals and also delivered ten assists this season which puts him high in the hierarchy of the best players this club has to offer.
