          Gillingham vs Tranmere Predictions, Tips & Stats

          This Saturday, Priestfield Stadium plays host to a crucial League Two clash, as playoff hopefuls Gillingham welcome a resurgent Tranmere Rovers side. Both teams come into the game on the back of victories, setting the stage for an exciting encounter.

          Gillingham currently occupy 7th place in the League Two table, well within the playoff chase. Their recent form has been impressive, with a 2-0 victory against Salford marking their second win on the bounce.

          Shadrach Ogie opened the scoring in the 44th minute, heading home from close range after Ethan Coleman's flick-on. Timothee Dieng doubled the lead just six minutes into the second half, tapping in from close range after Ashley Nadesan's clever pass. Despite challenging conditions, Gillingham were able to hold on to the victory.

          Manager Stephen Clemence has instilled a sense of belief in his squad, with their attacking play spearheaded by the in-form Oliver Hawkins and the creative spark of Timothée Dieng.

          Tranmere, on the other hand, find themselves in 18th place, but with a renewed sense of optimism. Their last game saw them edge past Sutton 1-0 in a tight game.

          Rob Apter’s late strike was the difference in the scores, a curled effort which beat Steve Arnold in the U's goal to put the hosts ahead on 87 minutes. Connor Jennings had a penalty saved by the Sutton ‘keeper at the start of the second half, and Rovers were denied a spot-kick before the break after what appeared to be handball on the line.

          Historically, this fixture has been tightly contested, with both sides enjoying success over the years. In their last five meetings, Gillingham have won two, Tranmere have won two, and one encounter ended in a draw. Notably, the most recent clash, back in March 2023, saw Tranmere emerge victorious with a 3-1 win at Prenton Park.

          Rob Apter capitalised on a mix-up in defence to open the scoring, smashing an effort beyond Jake Turner just before half time. Connor Jennings headed home to double the advantage before Apter found the net on the hour mark. Connor Mahoney scored a free kick in stoppage time to reduce the deficit slightly, but Tranmere held out for a 3-1 win that they were good value for.

          Unsurprisingly, it is Gillingham who come into this weekend as home favourites at the bookies and are currently priced @ 17/20, whilst an away win for Tranmere is priced @ 29/10 and a draw is currently @ 5/2.

          We are backing Gillingham to win and over 2.5 match goals as they come into this game on the back of an impressive run of form. This fixture is often a high scoring affair with there being over 2.5 goals in three of the last four meetings between the two sides.

          Gillingham Tean News

          Gillingham head coach Clemence is not expected to make wholesale changes to the side that took to the field against Salford last time out. However, there is likely to be a change in the final third of the field, with Ashley Nadesan, who has only scored twice in the league this season, set to be introduced into the XI.

          Tranmere Team News

          Tranmere Rovers have not reported any new injury concerns ahead of this weekend’s matchup. Nigel Adkins is not expected to make any changes to the side that were victorious over Sutton last time out.
