West Ham are aiming to continue their resurgence when they travel to Priestfield Stadium for an FA Cup third round fixture against Gillingham. The Hammers earned an emphatic 4-0 win on New Year’s Day in David Moyes’ first game in charge and should be too strong for Gillingham.

Gillingham Form


Gillingham have already played two rounds of the FA Cup and earned a 3-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers last time out to book their place in Sunday’s match. First half goals from Matt Byrne and Olly Lee put them in control of the tie before Brandon Hanlan added the third.

Steve Evans’ men have been plagued by inconsistency lately and head into Sunday’s match with just two wins from their last five matches. They were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Portsmouth with Alex Jakubiak's effort 10 minutes from time earning them a share of the spoils.

Gillingham News


Gillingham have no injuries or suspensions and are expected to name a strong team for the visit of West Ham. Top scorer Alex Jakubiak missed the win over Doncaster Rovers in the previous round and is likely to start on Sunday.

West Ham Form


West Ham looked impressive as they earned a 4-0 victory over Bournemouth in David Moyes’ first match in charge.  A brace from Mark Noble and efforts from Sebastian Haller and Felipe Anderson secured the win.

It was a good way to usher in the new year for the Hammers and they will hope to build some momentum with another win on Sunday. Sebastian Haller appears to be finding his feet again, having scored twice in his last four matches.

Pablo Fornals and Felipe Anderson have also impressed in recent weeks and will provide support to Sebastian Haller in attack.

Gillingham will look to top scorer Alex Jakubiak to provide the spark in attack following his goal on Wednesday. He has scored just two goals in his last 10 matches while fellow forward Brandon Hanlan is on a three-match goal drought.

Sebastian Haller has impressed for West Ham in recent weeks and will be the one to watch on Wednesday. He is often a handful for defenders with his aerial presence while Felipe Anderson should trouble the Gillingham backline with his pace and trickery.
