Gillingham vs Charlton Athletic Match Prediction

By William Hall

Gillingham host Charlton Athletic at The Valley this weekend which sees one of the leagues high flyers take on the side that is currently sitting at the bottom of League One. Gillingham are yet to win again this season seven games in which is a worrying sign for the home team this weekend. However, they were able to scrape a point midweek away to AFC Wimbledon after Sean Clare scored an equaliser deep into extra time in the first half. Charlton are currently sitting third in the table but do come into this one of the back of a heavy defeat at home to Wigan. Although this may just be a blip in their promising start to the season, it needs to be taken into consideration. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With Gillingham sitting bottom of the table and having just three points on the board, it is clear they will not be happy with the way they have started. Home form has been very poor which has taken a big impact on both their confidence and league position. In three home games this season, they have managed to pick up just one point from a possible nine which is the worst in the league. A visit from Charlton this weekend is on paper there toughest test of the season which is a daunting prospect for the home fans.

Charlton have been impressive so far, winning five and losing two. Just one of those defeats came away from home on the opening day of the season as now struggling Plymouth managed to beat them 2-0. However, since then they have seen off Rotherham and Oldham and will be hoping to do the same against a hugely struggling Gillingham this weekend. If Charlton turn up to this one ready, we could see some serious goals this weekend.

Gillingham Preview

The pressure won't be too high on Gillingham this weekend to go out and get a positive result with most expecting a Charlton win this weekend. However, if they are to get something they will need centre-forward Tom Eaves to be at his best with him looking one of the only players threatening in front of goal. The 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon in the sides last game was always expected to be a close encounter but when Gillingham went down to 10 men in the 43rd minute and already 1-0 down, the game looked gone. However, a goal a minute later filled the side with confidence as they held on for a point. Gillingham have lost twice in their last three games with both of them against teams in the top half of the table, which makes this weekends test look a tough ask.

Gillingham Team News

Gillingham will be with a full strength squad this weekend after the red card in the last game was turned over. Mark Byrne and Tom Eaves will need to be careful this weekend after already picking up four yellow cards a piece. One more will see a game suspension.

Charlton Athletic Preview

Charlton Athletic have won four of their last five games, but the one defeat did come in the teams last outing as they lost 3-0 at home to Wigan who are now just two points away from them in the league. Looking at this game, Charlton should have more than enough to win this one and win comfortably even after the blip last time out. Josh Magennis and Ricky Holmes are the bog threats for Charlton with the pair getting three goals each. The pair have formed a solid partnership this weekend and will prove a pain for any defense they come up against this season. With Charlton in form and confidence flowing, we can't see past them picking up all three points this weekend.

Charlton Athletic Team News

Charlton will be without just the one player this weekend with left-back Lewis Page still recovering from a hamstring injury he picked up in March this year.
