Gillingham host Shrewsbury on Wednesday evening at Priestfield Stadium in a mid-table League One clash. Read the Gillingham v Shrewsbury match preview and predictions below.

There’s not much separating these two sides in the league with the hosts on 36 points and the visitors in 34. Both sides look safe to avoid relegation and would need a good run of games to move up the table into a play-off spot.

Gillingham are currently unbeaten in their last 9 league matches although are winless in their last 5. Their last outing was a 2-2 draw away to Rochdale but Steve Evans’ side failed to hold onto the lead as a Stephen Dooly second-half goal levelled the score. One positive for Gillingham is that they’ve picked up 24 points on home turf this season compared to just 12 on their travels. Up until their two recent draws in the league and their 2-0 FA Cup defeat to West Ham, Gillingham had won 7 consecutive games in all competitions and conceding just one goal in the process.

Shrewsbury aren’t having a great spell at the moment and have picked up just one win from their last 8 matches which was a 1-0 victory against Bristol City in the FA Cup. However, they did only lose two of those matches, drawing 5 of them. Their last match was an impressive 2-2 draw against Premier League leaders and current Champions League holders Liverpool in the FA Cup. Despite the lift that win will give the hosts, it was only on Sunday afternoon and so we’ll have to see if that extra 90 minutes will have taken its toll on the players’ fitness.

Gillingham v Shrewsbury Prediction

Given the two sides league positions, this is a tough match to call. However, Gillingham have proved that they show their form on home soil and have averaged just under 1.6 goals per game. Shrewsbury, on the other hand, have only managed to find the net an average of just under 0.7 goals per game on their travels and so if the hosts can find the net, they’ll stand a good chance of taking away all three points.

We’re backing a narrow home win on Wednesday evening and based on the stats, we’re expecting a low-scoring match. A 1-0 win for Gillingham is predicted along with under 2.5 goals.
