Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for either side heading into this one.

Gillingham's deadline day signing Josh Andrews did not make the squad against Walsall at the weekend, so it will be interesting to see if the striker makes the trip to Meadow Lane on Friday night.

Notts County and both teams to score @ 5/2

We have gone for this selection because although they are not as high in the table as they would like, Notts County still have one of the stronger sides in the division.

And with the incentive of strengthening their position inside the top seven against fellow promotion hopefuls Gillingham, we fancy the Magpies to use the home advantage to secure them a valuable three points.

It won't be easy, however. With only a point separating the two teams, the Gills will certainly give Notts County plenty to think about on Friday night.

Neither side heads into the game in the best of form as they have both failed to win in their last three matches. But with the stakes quite high in this cash, we're expecting both teams to be up for it. Gillingham can certainly hurt the hosts but we do think that this is set up for a home win.

Macaulay Langstaff to score anytime @ 11/8

After netting in Notts County's 2-1 win in the reverse fixture at Gillingham earlier in the season, you have to fancy the hosts' leading man Macaulay Langstaff to get on the scoresheet again.

Langstaff has scored 20 goals in 29 appearances in the league this term. He has six in his last six, so he will be full of confidence heading into the weekend. At 11/8, he is well worth a punt to continue his excellent form in front of goal against the Gills.
