Oxford United

  • United are looking to win three league games in a row for the first time since Sept-Oct 2017 (Peterborough, Wimbledon, Bristol Rovers).
  • They could climb six places (to 13th) or fall two (to 21st) depending on Saturday’s results.
  • After Tuesday night, players picking up their tenth league booking of the season will not trigger a two-game ban. Jamie Mackie is on nine cautions.
  • If Sam Long keeps his place in the side it will be the first time he has started three successive league matches since a four-game run at the end of the 2014/15 season.

  • The Kent club are on a nine-game winless run against the U’s (D3 L6), since a 1-0 victory at Priestfield in October 2011. Lewis Montrose, who went on to play for United, scored the only goal in a game where the hosts finished with nine men.
  • Gillingham have picked up more points on the road (22) than they have managed at home (18) this season.
  • Only James Collins (Luton) and John Marquis (Doncaster) have scored more goals in League One than Gillingham’s Tom Eaves.


Ollie Yates (Staffordshire).

  • 30 games this season (4 red cards, 113 yellows).
  • He was in charge of United’s 2-0 defeat to Fleetwood Town in August and the Checkatrade Trophy tie at Cheltenham Town in January.
