Gillingham vs Fylde betting tips: FA Cup First Round Replay preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Gillingham were making headlines in the Carabao Cup last midweek, so won’t want to be on the wrong end of an FA Cup shock this.

Seven nights ago, the Gills beat Premier League Brentford in the League Cup, on a night the travelling supporters will never forget.

They had just one shot all night, this Mikael Mandron’s headed equaliser, before getting through 6-5 on penalties.

Three days before that, Gillingham had been held to a 1-1 draw by AFC Fylde in the first clash between these two.

Mandron, once again, was on target at Mill Farm, before Tom Walker’s late equaliser forced this replay.

Neil Harris’ side are currently in League Two, but are down in 22nd, following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Northampton.

Nevertheless, they’ll fancy their chances of reaching round two for the fifth time in six seasons.

Don’t write of AFC Fylde though, seeking to get beyond this stage for the first time in three years.

The Coasters can be found in the National League North, part of the sixth-tier, where they’re ninth, beating Darlington 2-1 at the weekend.

Will Gillingham make home advantage count at Priestfield Stadium?

The reward is a trip to Dagenham & Redbridge in round two.
