Sunderland vs Gillingham Match Preview
Sunderland host Gillingham for their Matchday 30 clash on Tuesday evening, just days after doing the same for Accrington Stanley in search of a return to the winning ways with draws against Oxford United (1-1) and Blackpool (1-1) now behind them.
Black Cats have still seen their 11-match unbeaten streak extended and we’ll now surely see Jack Ross’ men motivated to show off at Stadium of Light. They’ve been in great shape here and suffered just two home losses this term, wanting to keep building on a top 2 chase with such performances.
Gillingham sit in the other end of the table and head into busy schedule with a troubled streak behind them, where Swansea knocked them out of FA Cup (4-1), Walsall (0-3) and Barnsley (1-4) snatched the league points at MEMS Priestfield Stadium, and two points in clashes against Stanley (0-0) and Coventry (1-1) hardly feel like great confidence boosters.
Gills have been scoring goals on the road but still struggled to capitalize on them too, far from bragging right when it comes to consistency and stability. We feel it will be important to finally find it but starting at Stadium of Light will be no easy task.
We’ll thus back Sunderland to secure the points and go for a Home win, which comes at 3/4 with Betway and feels like a generous banker bet at this point. We’ve seen them rock-solid at home ground and surely see them showing off such a character.
Still, we should be in for a solid challenge from the struggling visitors and we should see goals, as we also stick with a Yes on Both teams to score at 10/11 with Betfred. Sunderland have struggled to keep clean sheets recently and this feels like further evidence for such a bet.
