Gillingham 22nd (W2-D4-L7 = 10 points). Scored 7, conceded 16.
Wigan 1st (W10-D1-L2 = 31 points). Scored 25, conceded 7.

Call me mad but I think there's a chance of an upset of some degree here. Gillingham parted company with Peter Taylor last Thursday and interim manager Steve Lovell is in temporary charge at the moment. By all accounts (numerous match reports), he got a proper reaction out of the players and they were unlucky not to win more handsomely at 7th placed Peterborough on Saturday.

Wigan are top yes, and have been largely good value for it. I wouldn't consider this in a million years if Wigan were at home but away from home they are going to lose some games. They've beaten some good sides on their travels (Charlton and Scunthorpe) but have lost 2/6 away league games this season. Throw a "winning" draw at Blackpool in the Checkatrade Trophy into the mix and they've not an invincible record. After all, they lost at Peterborough - where Gillingham won at the weekend, and although football doesn't work like that - those quirks often work out.

For all their struggles, Gillingham have W1-D2 of their 6 home games giving it a 50% strike rate. Their last 4 home games were against Portsmouth (8th), Scunthorpe (12th), Charlton (5th) and Shrewsbury (2nd) so really that's not a bad return. If Steve Lovell can get that reaction from his players in 2 training sessions, and they make further improvement between that game and this, then who's to say Wigan will get it all their own way?

Gillingham have won 4 of the 5 meetings between the two at this ground. A 5 point stake says the Latics head back north with a point at most.
