Preview | Gillingham (H)

7 October 2022

Crewe Alexandra return to Mornflake Stadium to welcome Gillingham on Saturday (3pm).

Alex Morris and men will be looking to get back to winning ways, after a creditable draw at Carlisle United last time out.

The Opposition

Gillingham sit 18th in the table, but are unbeaten in their last two outings - a stalemate against Hartlepool and a 1-0 victory over Sutton United.

In their 130th season of existence, the Gills have struggled for form following their relegation from League One last term, and have scored just there league goals so far this term.

The Gaffer

Neil Harris took charge of the Kent side in January 2022, though could not manage to help stave off relegation.

The ex-Gillingham loanee has managed at a higher level, having guided Millwall from League One into an established Championship side, as well as going on successful FA Cup runs -knocking out Premier League sides along the way.

Fighting Talk

Alex Morris: “We’ve got to try and win this game, because this type of fixture – any fixture at home – is a chance to get three points on the board. Draws just lead to you being static, we want wins to be in the area of the table we need to be in.”

Neil Harris: “Crewe are a hard-working team, honest group and don’t concede a lot of chances, Baker-Richardson has scored a lot of goals this season. It’s another challenge to keep the momentum going from Tuesday - win our first game on the road.”

Team News

Crewe remain without Callum Ainley (shoulder), Christopher Long (ankle), Oliver Finney (ankle) and Charlie Colkett (hamstring). Courtney Baker-Richardson (leg) is a doubt.

Gills man Shaun Williams faces a late fitness test following his ankle ligament injury against Brighton Under-21s in midweek. They will be without captain Stuart O’Keefe, David Tutonda and Ben Reeves.

Head-to-Head

The Railwaymen hold the upper hand in the head-to-head battle, having beaten Gillingham 23 times. However, the visitors have won five of the last six meetings between the sides, with 22 successes overall.

Officials

Robert Madden will take charge on Saturday afternoon, officiating his first Alex match of his career following moving to the EFL from the Scottish FA for the 2022/23 season.

He will be assisted by Steven Plane and Adam Ricketts, with Alex Gray being appointed as fourth official.
