Gillingham vs Newport County Top Odds and Best Predictions

These teams are right next to each other in the League Two standings, and with their season settled as far as their final position is concerned, we should see an entertaining match.

Both Teams to Score

For the first Gillingham vs Newport County prediction, the BTTS option is not as clear-cut as it might seem, but for the reason that neither of these teams can make many moves in the rankings, we should at least see some goals being scored. Gillingham had three out of their last five games with both teams scoring at least a goal while Newport had the last three outings to that effect. When it comes to the history of their h2h matches, there are only two contests they were involved in, and neither had covered the BTTS option.

Gillingham to Win

The h2h record for this Gillingham vs Newport County match isn't of that much importance as the sample size is not big enough. Rather, the reasoning behind this pick is Gillingham's home form that has been terrific in recent weeks. In their last ten matches while playing in front of their fans, Gillingham won eight games while drawing once, and losing only to Bradford which happened on the last day of February. Newport's away form, on the other side of things, has been good enough with the team winning twice while also drawing on two occasions, and being defeated only once. The first match between these sides during the current season ended with a 2-0 Newport victory.

Gillingham vs Newport County Lineups, Team Information, and Preview

Gillingham

The biggest negative aspect of the season for Gillingham is their losing record. With 18 defeats, they have been trailing most of the teams from the upper part of the rankings which took away their chance of possibly fighting for a place among teams that will be playing on the promotion playoff stage of the season. Gillingham is also the least-effective team in the league with the lowest number of goals scored at 34.

Provisional lineup: Morris, Alexander, Ehmer, Masterson, McKenzie, MacDonald, Coleman, Dieng, Jefferies, Lapslie, Nichols.

Newport County

The visiting side is in a similar boat to their next opponent. They have earned one more point this season, but that won't bring the team much positive when they look back at the year that will end soon enough. Newport lost earlier in the week in a postponed match against Harrogate and only has two wins from their last five encounters.

Provisional lineup: Day, Demetriou, Farquharson, Baker, Evans, Bennett, Charsley, Waite, Norman, Kavanagh, Bogle.

Starting Lineups

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

Player to Watch: Tom Nichols

There aren't many players on Gillingham's roster that had a season on the highest of levels, but one player that is worth the mention carries the name, Tom Nichols. He has played in 39 league matches while scoring seven goals and assisting on ten occasions. Of course, not all of those statistical points were made during his time at Gillingham, he was brought to the team in January, but immediately provided a spark that gave his new team at least a beacon of hope for the second part of the season.
