PREVIEW Gillingham v Oxford United

Brannagan returns at Priestfield

8 March 2019

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game at Gillingham

TEAM NEWS
The U's welcome back Cameron Brannagan after suspension as they take on Gillingham but the midfielder may need to be patient after two wins in the last two games.

A sickness bug earlier in the week seems to have cleared up and there was a full bill of health in training yesterday other than long term absentees Rob Hall, Jon Obika, Malachi Napa and Shandon Baptiste. 

See Cameron Brannagan and Karl Robinson previewing the game in iFollow where we also have a great chat with John Mousinho in the Preview Show plus a frankly baffling explanation of statistics from First Team Analyst Dan Bond...

THE OPPOSITION
Gills boss Steve Lovell has ruled out a return for Ricky Holmes who had been hoping to make his return from injury against his former club

“No, he won’t be fit for Oxford" Lovell told the Kent Messenger.

“With Ricky, it could be that all of a sudden he’s right to go but it’s an injury we’ve really got to be careful on and make sure he’s 120% right to play because we don’t want him to have a recurrence. I think he might have thought of the Oxford game but we weren’t too bothered when he came back, just as long as he comes back fully fit because he’s a quality player and we’d love him available for selection.

“We’ve still got 11 games to go, so hopefully we’ll see him in a Gillingham shirt pretty soon.” 

"I think we’re playing well at the moment" Lovell added. “We’re all enjoying what we’re doing and I think it’s quite settled. Supporters will look at the table and think this one’s really important but I think they’re all just as important and any wins you can pick up will be crucial."
