The hosts are currently sitting at the bottom of the league standings, while the visitors have ambitions at the other end of the table and will want to cement their spot in the playoff places.

Gillingham finished 21st in League One last season and got relegated by goal difference alone, so they will have expected to fare far better in the fourth tier than they have done so far, picking up just 14 points after 20 matches.

In league action, Neil Harris’ side have won just two matches all season, both of which came at Priestfield Stadium in games that finished 1-0, the most recent of which dating back to an encounter with Sutton United at the beginning of October.

The Gills have actually managed just six goals all season, an absolutely poor record, with the nearest low scorers Rochdale managing to get eight more.

In their last league game, it was more of the same for Gillingham, suffering a 3-0 defeat at home to Salford City, with three second-half goals ensuring that they continue to occupy a spot in the relegation zone.

However, there is some cause for optimism, with the Gills claiming a 3-2 victory over Dagenham & Redbridge in the FA Cup on Thursday, finding their shooting boots at last to set up a third round tie with Leicester City.

Meanwhile, Bradford have been boosted by the appointment of former Premier League manager Mark Hughes, and they have made a solid start in his first full season as head coach at the University of Bradford Stadium.

Given their form on the road up to this point, the Bantams will be relishing the trip to Kent this weekend, as they boast the fourth-best away record in the division, picking up 19 points in their opening 10 matches.

Gillingham Team News

Left-back Dave Tutonda returned to the squad after a knee injury and played full-time against Dagenham on Thursday, and should join Will Wright, Elkan Baggott and Max Ehmer in the backline.

Hakeeb Adelakun scored a winner in injury time in the week, and he should play just behind Lewis Walker in the Gillingham attack.

Bradford City Team News
