Gillingham host Arsenal U21s in the EFL Trophy at Priestfield Stadium on Tuesday. The Gunners youngsters have won both games and can qualify as Group B winners with a third straight victory.

Gillingham Form


Gillingham suffered five straight defeats in a bad run in League One for Steve Evans side. But they have bounced back with successive victories over the last week.

The Gills lost 2-0 to MK Dons, Portsmouth and Fleetwood before conceding late in a 1-0 defeat to Ipswich. They then lost 2-0 at home to Sunderland.

That miserable run was ended when Gillingham recorded a 1-0 win at Crewe in League One in midweek. The Gills avoided an FA Cup upset when scoring three times in the last 31 minutes to come from 2-0 down to defeat Woking 3-2 on Saturday.

In the EFL Trophy, Gillingham were 2-1 winners over Crawley in the opening game. They then lost 2-0 at Ipswich and need a result on Tuesday if they are to qualify.

Arsenal U21 Form


A victory would see Arsenal qualify for the knockout stages of the EFL Trophy after winning both of their games in Group B in the EFL Trophy South.

The young Gunners failed to make it out of the group stages last season, but stand on the verge of qualification ahead of the trip to the Priestfield.

Arsenal's youngsters won 2-1 against Ipswich before repeating the scoreline against Crawley. They could still qualify if losing to Gillingham, but a victory would guarantee progressing from the group as winners.
