Today's Betting Tips for Gillingham vs Leicester

Leicester are favourites to prevail when they visit League Two’s bottom club Gillingham in the FA Cup on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Leicester to Win to Nil

Leicester slipped to yet another defeat in the Premier League when they somehow lost at home to Fulham despite creating a number of excellent chances. However, a date with League Two’s bottom club Gillingham could allow the Foxes to exorcise some of their frustrations. The struggling Gills have failed to score in three of their last four assignments in all competitions, including Wolves in the Carabao Cup, and they could fail to notch again against another Premier League opponent on Saturday.

Leicester -1.0 Goal Handicap

Brenden Rodgers’ Foxes created enough chances to plunder at least a couple of goals against Fulham and you get the sense that Leicester’s players will be itching to set a few wrongs right against Gillingham on Saturday. Visitors to the MEMS Priestfield Stadium beat the -1.0 goal handicap in two of the last three matches at that venue and Leicester have the quality to do the same. With that in mind, we recommend backing City with a one goal disadvantage.

Gillingham vs Leicester Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday’s FA Cup encounter between Gillingham and Leicester.

Gillingham

First-choice Gillingham keeper Glenn Morris returned from injury against Stevenage on Monday, though his comeback didn't have the impact the club hoped. The relegation candidates lost 1-0 against Borough and they are now five points off safety in League Two.

Predicted Lineup for Gillingham: Morris – McKenzie, Wright, Ehmer, Tutonda – Jeffries, Williams, O'Keefe, MacDonald – Kashket, Mandron

Leicester

Leicester have a lengthy injury list at present which includes James Justin, Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereira, James Maddison, Dennis Praet, Patson Daka, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Boubakary Soumare and Ryan Bertrand. With options light, Brendan Rodgers cannot rotate his team a whole lot.

Predicted Lineup for Leicester: Ward – Castagne, Vestergaard, Soyuncu, Thomas – Mendy, Ndidi – Albrighton, Perez – Iheanacho, Vardy

Player to Watch – Çağlar Söyüncü

Turkish defender Çağlar Söyüncü isn’t enjoying the best of campaigns for Leicester and the 26-year-old seems to be falling completely out of favour under Brendan Rodgers. Söyüncü was a fan favourite and defensive mainstay for the Foxes last term, and he will hope to be selected on Saturday to remind Rodgers of his talents.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
