This week Gillingham head to the Galpharm stadium this Saturday for Town?s second home game in two weeks.Huddersfield Town Vs Gillingham
The last time Gillingham were in Town in January 2006 the game was a dull 0-0 draw. This season on the first day of the 2006/07 season the side from Kent won 2-1 with Matthew Jarvis and Dean McDonald scoring the goals with Gary Taylor-Fletcher replying for the Terriers. Currently Gillingham are in 12th place in League One, one position behind Town in the league.

Recent form have shown Town haven?t lost in their last 3 games, despite Town generally losing to teams below them in the league, wins against Cheltenham Town and Bournemouth with the draw against Chesterfield last weekend have moved Town up to 11th place in League One.
Gillingham?s form guide is pretty poor, their 2-0 win over Tranmere Rovers last Friday night was their first win in 6 games for the Gills. Managed my ex-Town favourite ?Rocket? Ronnie Jepson, the Gills have only picked up one point in a possible 15.
Gillingham have only won 2 games away from home this season, their last away victory was over Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on the 23rd of December.

For tomorrow?s match Town will be without captain Jon Worthington who is out with a groin injury, Nathan Clarke and Adnan Ahmed could make the 16 man squad. Young goalkeeper Simon Eastwood is on the bench because of Paul Rachubka going on loan to Blackpool. New loan signing from Blackburn Rovers Andy Taylor could make his debut if back from illness.

Gillingham are without Mark Bentley who has a one match suspension but Ian Cox is back from his ban but Leon Johnson could keep his place.
Alan Poulton had to retire from football due to a knee injury, striker Bas Savage left the Gills this week after rejecting a new contract and has now signed for Brighton, Defender Ben Chorley is on loan from Mk Dons for the rest of the season and Nicky Southall signed from Nottingham Forest for his third stint at the club sighting that his family are settled in the area.

One To Watch- Matthew Jarvis

Has to be the left winger Matt Jarvis who has been getting rave reviews this season and has been linked with big money moves to the Premiership throughout this season.

Jarvis scored past Town on the opening day of the season in a 2-1 victory over Town. He has pace and tricky with an eye for goal as well. Jarvis came through the ranks at Gillingham and was voted young player of the year last season.
