Gillingham vs Sunderland Predictions

Gillingham have looked fairly comfortable in League One this season as they appear all set for a mid-table finish under the management of Steve Evans. Although the Scottish boss entered the season with his usual brash confidence, his side have not been among the best teams in the division, but they have been slightly more competent than some expected and are in no immediate danger of being dragged into the relegation dogfight towards the bottom of the table.

Their opponents on Tuesday night are Sunderland, who also aren’t among the frontrunners in the third tier at the moment – which will be a cause of huge concern for supporters and board members alike. For a club their size, the Black Cats were expected to win promotion at the first time of asking after relegation two seasons ago, but they lost out at the play-off final to Charlton Athletic and now, 15 games into this season, find themselves floundering in ninth place.

This poor early season form prompted a change in management at the Stadium of Light but Jack Ross’ replacement, Phil Parkinson, has been unable to harbour any sort of new manager bounce so far and his side make this long midweek trip to Kent on Tuesday night having won just one of their last six games in all competitions including the first leg of this clash which took place last weekend.

After Aiden McGeady’s early strike, it did appear as though the hosts would be heading through in that tie but Olly Lee’s strike gave the Gills the draw and took this tie to a replay, which the two sides will face off in on Tuesday night for the chance to take on either AFC Wimbledon or Doncaster Rovers at home in the next round. The Gills are out at 13/5 with Coral.

We’re backing goals in this game. The last four meetings between Gillingham and Sunderland have seen both teams find the net and although neither side have been overly-prolific in front of goal of late, they do both possess some quality attacking players. The visitors have the better side on paper, but the hosts have the home advantage, so both sides will be expected to try and take the game to the opposition. Both teams to score is available at 17/20 with William Hill.

Mikael Mandron got his second Gillingham goal in his team’s 1-0 home win over Lincoln City over the weekend. The Frenchman will be looking forward to this game for a chance to hurt his former employers – the forward spent several years in the youth set-up on Wearside only to struggle for game time and eventually move on. We’re backing him for a goal at any time at odds of 11/4 with PaddyPower.
