Gillingham vs West Ham: Match preview

West Ham are set to travel to Gillingham on Sunday the 5th of January. The two sides are facing off in the FA Cup 3rd round.

West Ham are entering this year’s competition in the 3rd round whilst Gillingham’s 2019/20 FA Cup journey began in the 1st round where they saw off Sunderland.

The League One outfit then earned a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Doncaster in the 2nd round.

West Ham have clinched the FA Cup three times throughout their history, the last time being in 1980. They have also been runners up twice in 1923 and 2006.

West Ham would lose to Liverpool on penalties in the 2006 FA Cup final.

As for Gillingham, they have never made it past the 6th round of the competition.

The last time these two sides met was all the way back in 2005 when West Ham came out on top.

The two outfits have faced off just 10 times throughout their history with West Ham winning six of those ties.

In terms of form, it is Gillingham who have enjoyed the better results recently.

David Moyes back at West Ham

West Ham parted ways with Manuel Pellegrini earlier this week after the Chilean managed to guide the Hammers to just two wins in his final 14 games in the dugout.

David Moyes has since taken the reins at West Ham with this stint the second time the Scotsman has been in the West Ham dugout.

Moyes took over the London outfit back in the 2017/18 season when they were in similarly poor form. The former Manchester United boss managed to steady the ship and guide them to a 13th place finish in the Premier League that term.

And the Irons will no doubt be hoping for a similar outcome this season as well.

Moyes’ first game in charge this time around saw West Ham comprehensively beat Bournemouth 4-0.
