Team Information, Preview, and Walsall vs Gillingham Lineups
The home-field advantage is something that Walsall takes pride in and this match is one of those where they will need all the help they can get from their supporters. Walsall won only once in their last five games overall and a match against a top-three team in the league is something the squad is relishing.
Possible lineup: Evans, Riley, Williams, Daniels, Gordon, Oteh, Stirk, McEntee, Knowles, Matt, Johnson.
There is a rare occurrence that a team can be a top-three side in the league and at the same time have scored the same number of goals as the worst team in the league. That is the story of Gillingham who lie third in League Two but scored only eleven goals in twelve matches, the same as the bottom club Forest Green. To make matters even stranger, Gillingham has a negative goal difference at 11-12.
Possible lineup: Turner, Ogie, Malone, Masterson, Alexander, Mahoney, Coleman, Jefferies, Clarke, Nichols, Nadesan.
Player to Watch: Ashley Nadesan
There aren't many examples of excellence within the Gillingham squad, their success this season is mostly due to their team effort. However, two players in the squad have scored a couple of goals this term and one of those is Ashley Nadesan.
The 29-year-old has participated in all twelve games this campaign but started only half of them. However, he is certainly a valuable member of the team after coming over from Crawley Town two and a half months ago. His previous stints include Fleetwood and Carlisle United.
