PREVIEW Gillingham v Oxford United

A full guide to Saturday's game at Priestfield

28 January 2022

Oxford United travel to Gillingham on Saturday in Sky Bet League 1

TEAM NEWS
United are without the suspended Herbie Kane who misses the last of his three games after a red card while Jordan Thorniley has been recalled by parent club Blackpool.

Luke McNally steps in for Thorniley and Ryan Williams returns to the squad after the dafe arrival of his son last Saturday but United are still without James Henry, Jamie Hanson and Alex Gorrin through injury.

See Karl Robinson and Billy Bodin previewing the game in iFollow right now.

THE OPPOSITION
Caretaker boss Steve Lovell is in temporary charge after the departure of Steve Evans.

The Gills are without a win in their last 13 league games - 16 in all competitions - but Lovell remains positive:

“I concentrate on the future, not on the past,” he said after a goalless draw at home to Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday. “It is a point in the right direction. Saturday is a massive game against Oxford and Tuesday (at home again) will be even bigger against Crewe.

“If we can get seven points out of three games now I would have taken that. It's nice that we are at home and the fans were excellent on Tuesday. We need everyone to be positive, there is no other way."

Gillingham should have leading scorer Vadaine Oliver available again. The striker was absent on Tuesday as his wife gave birth to a son but fellow striker John Akinde has this week joined Colchester United.
