Gillingham

Last updated: Sun 05 January 2020 07:39
In Brief

Played out a 1:1 draw with Portsmouth. Enjoying their best run of form of the season. No new selection issues.

Looking Back

Gillingham fell behind in their recent match against Portsmouth but kept going strong and scored with ten minutes left to rescue a point.

The Gills have been steadily improving under Steve Evans and are currently enjoying their best run of the season.

Looking Ahead

Mark Byrne is a long-term injury victim, while Matty Willock is yet to return to first-team action after recovering from a long-term injury of his own.

Apart from the duo, Byrne is expected to have everyone available to feature.

Points of Interest

Gillingham have a 1-0-3 record in their last four games against West Ham. They last played the Hammers in 2005, when this was a Championship fixture.

West Ham United

Last updated: Sun 05 January 2020 09:17
In Brief

First game under Moyes brought impressive 4:0 home win vs. Bournemouth and now looking to build. Yarmolenko passed fit. Wilshere set to miss. Fabianski, Noble, Ogbonna and Antonio doubtful.

Looking Back

West Ham looked transformed in first game under Moyes starting 2020 with 4:0 home win vs. Bournemouth. Captain Noble led team well in this match, but fact remains that many fans still angry about sacking of Pellegrini and appointment of controversial Moyes.

After recent turmoil dressing room seems calm at the minute with all players behaving amicably. Ogbonna and Noble looked like best friends on pitch on Wednesday.

Looking Ahead

Coach Moyes expected to use strong line-up as he tries to build momentum. If as expected Yarmolenko is over illness he could start. Lanzini also pushing for inclusion.

Wilshere out, while Antonio likely to miss. Also none of Fabianski, Ogbonna, Noble or Creswell trained on Friday and they are all deemed doubtful.

Points of Interest

Away record in FA Cup very poor over last 10 years – (W2 D4 L8).

Manager Comments

"For me, the FA Cup is joint equal with making sure we’re as high up the Premier League as we can. We need to do everything we can to get through in the Cup."
