Gillingham and Salford lock horns at Priestfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon (15:00), with both sides going into the game off the back of a defeat.

The away side was victorious on both occasions when these teams met last season, with the Ammies winning this exact fixture 3-0 last December.

Gillingham vs Salford Prediction

  • Salford - Draw No Bet @ 6/4
  • Matt Smith to score anytime @ 13/8

Team News

Stephen Clemence may opt for the same lineup that lost against Wrexham last weekend, although Tom Nichols is expected to be recalled to the starting XI.

As for Salford, Neil Wood could potentially rotate his side after they played 120 minutes against Peterborough United in their FA Cup replay. Curtis Tilt scored twice in midweek and is expected to retain his place among the backline.

Match Odds

Gillingham are 11/10 to win, while Salford are 12/5 and the draw is 5/2.

A repeat of Salford's 3-0 victory from last December is 40/1, and punters can back both teams to score at 8/11.

Salford - Draw No Bet @ 6/4

Salford’s results have picked up since an improvement in their injury situation and they will fancy their chances of defeating Gillingham in Kent.

Neil Wood’s side are unbeaten on their last three road trips, boasting the sixth-best away record in League Two, and can see off the Gills, who have suffered back-to-back league losses in their past two outings.

Salford have shown that they can score for fun in recent weeks, scoring four against Peterborough on Tuesday, as well as enjoying high-scoring wins over Manchester United's U21s and Doncaster Rovers.

Matt Smith to score anytime @ 13/8

The 34-year-old is Salford's top goalscorer so far this term with 14 goals in 22 appearances across all competitions.

The former QPR striker has an impressive return of 13 strikes in 17 league outings, and he managed to get on the scoresheet in last weekend's defeat to Mansfield Town, as well as grab a hat-trick away at Doncaster at the end of October.

He's expected to lead the line here, and I think 13/8 is a decent price to back him to net anytime.
