Away Days: Gillingham vs Stevenage

15 October 2022

Stevenage travel to Kent tomorrow for a 3pm Kick Off with Neil Harris’ Gillingham in Sky Bet League Two…

Steve Evans’ side sit top of Sky Bet League Two as they look to continue their impressive form, after picking up ten league wins in thirteen games. Last Saturday, Boro earned yet another three points at The Lamex Stadium with a 2-0 win over Swindon Town through a Jordan Roberts brace.

Gillingham Football Club spent the last ten campaigns in Sky Bet League One before suffering relegation earlier this year. The Gills earned just eight wins in forty-six games last season to put an end to their ten-year spell in the third tier. The Kent side currently sit nineteenth in Sky Bet League Two, with just two wins to their name after twelve league matches. They have scored just four goals in twelve games but have been reasonably solid in defence, conceding just twelve.

Gillingham’s most recent home League match was two weeks ago as Sutton United travelled to the MEMS Priestfield Stadium. The Gills won 1-0 on the day thanks to a last-gasp winner from Scott Kashket. Despite picking up two victories at home this season, Gillingham are still without a win away from home in the league.

Neil Harris took over as Gills boss in January 2022 following the departure of current Stevenage Gaffer, Steve Evans. Harris undertook a difficult task of keeping Gillingham in Sky Bet League One but fell at the last hurdle on the final day of the campaign. So far, he has struggled to pick up form with his side as they now look to climb the table.

Boro and The Gills have met on just six occasions in the past, with Stevenage winning twice, Gillingham winning three times and the sides drawing just once. The most recent encounter between the two clubs was back in 2015, as Stevenage hosted The Gills in FA Cup First Round at The Lamex Stadium. Goals from Chris Whelpdale, Steven Schumacher and Armand Gnanduillet contributed to a 3-0 win in front of a home crowd.

Stevenage have never managed to win against Gilllingham away from home but did pick up a home league victory over the Kent side in the 2013/14 campaign. Boro won 3-1 on the day thanks to goals from Darius Charles and Francois Zoko.

The MEMS Priestfield Stadium has been home to Gillingham FC since the club’s formation in 1893. The Ground currently holds a capacity of 11,582. It has four all-seater stands which have all been constructed since 1997. The highest attendance recorded was 23,002 back in 1948 as The Gills hosted QPR in that season’s FA Cup.

Ross Joyce has been appointed as Match Referee for tomorrow’s fixture with Nicholas Dunn and Alan Cresswell as his Assistants and Marc Wilson as Fourth Official. So far this campaign, Joyce has handed out twenty three yellow cards and two reds in eight EFL fixtures.

Match Reports

Report: Gillingham 1-1 Stevenage

15 October 2022

Danny Rose's first-half header is cancelled out by Baggott's equaliser as the points are shared in Kent...

Boro arrived in Kent as table toppers, looking to keep a hold of pole position, with Gillingham standing in the way of another three points. Steve Evans opted for the same starting eleven to the one that defeated Swindon the week prior, with Luke Norris making the bench.

Stevenage created some early danger for Gillingham to be aware of as Jordan Roberts picked up the ball on the right-hand side before delivering a dangerous ball across goal, but no one was able to get the decisive touch as The Gills won a throw-in.

Gillingham created a half chance five minutes later as Mikael Mandron took aim under pressure inside the Stevenage area but struck the ball wide of the post.

Despite there being a rather slow period throughout the first twenty minutes, the game began to pick up in pace, but in favour of Gillingham. Hakeeb Adelakun sprinted down the right wing before sending a low ball over to Scott Kashket at the back post who managed to fire over the bar from three yards to keep the score level.

Despite seeing out some pressure from Gillingham, Boro opened the scoring just before the half hour mark. Saxon Earley pulled off a wonderful cross from his left wing-back position and found the head of Danny Rose whose sublime leaping ability was on display as the forward headed the ball past Glenn Morris to give Stevenage the lead.

Five minutes before the break, however, The Gills equalised. Will Wright’s cross was met by the powerful head of Elkan Baggott whose header flew past Taye Ashby-Hammond to level the scoring and liven up the home crowd.

At half-time, Steve Evans made one change as captain Carl Piergianni was replaced by Michael Bostwick. Then, ten minutes into the half, Jake Reeves and Jamie Reid made way for Jake Taylor and Luke Norris respectively.

Gillingham found a lot of the ball in the first twenty minutes of the second period but failed to create any clear-cut chances as the score remained level.

Boro livened up soon after as Evans’ men searched for a second goal. Alex Gilbey burst into the box and there were major penalty appeals from the Stevenage dugout, but the referee said no. It then appeared that Danny Rose was pushed into the back outside the area, but the referee dismissed again before booking Saxon Earley for protesting this.

With twenty minutes remaining, Stevenage were on the front foot again as the ball fell to Michael Bostwick on the edge of the area who took aim, but powerfully fired just over the bar.

As the wind picked up in Kent, Jordan Roberts was sent through on goal with only the goalkeeper to beat. Roberts managed to strike it past the goalkeeper but also past the post as somehow, the score remained level.

Neither side were able to create a real chance in the final fifteen minutes as the fourth official’s board revealed there would be five minutes of additional time. Tensions were high as both managers exchanged words.

Eventually, after both sides tussled, the final whistle was blown and the points were shared. Boro now return to The Lamex on Tuesday to face Spurs Under 21s in The Papa John’s Trophy.
