The story so far…
When the draw was made, Gillingham were the highest ranked team in the competition thanks to their fantastic start to their season.
Nine wins, four draws and three defeats in the league means the clubs ambitions since the start of the season have had to be adjusted as they find themselves in position to mount a title challenge.
They did however post a defeat in their last game despite going 2-0 up, a 3-2 defeat away at fellow League One surprise package, Walsall.
Head to Head:
Boro have faced Gillingham five times throughout the years, only winning once back in February 2014. On that day Darius Charles scored twice and Francois Zoko got one from the spot as we came out on top 3-1.
The Gills have won on three occasions, including on our first and most recent outing - in the JPT last season. The one draw came in 2011 as Byron Harrison got a double to help us to a 2-2 scoreline.
