Gillingham vs Plymouth preview
Last Updated: 18/04/19 3:21pm
Gillingham manager Steve Lovell will hope to have Regan Charles-Cook back in the fold when his side host Plymouth on Friday.
Charles-Cook had been tipped for a comeback in the 2-0 defeat to Shrewsbury at the weekend, having picked up an injury at Peterborough in the previous fixture.
The midfielder did not make the matchday squad, although the fact Mark Byrne - also injured at Peterborough - came through 90 minutes unscathed will be a boost for the Gills. Gillingham are 15th but only four points clear of the drop zone in a wide-open Sky Bet League One survival fight.
Plymouth are a point further back and on a winless run of five matches. Jamie Ness looks likely to remain sidelined with a calf injury for the Pilgrims, while Joe Riley is out for the rest of the season after breaking his arm at Blackpool at the end of last month.
Conor Grant and Joel Grant are also long-term absentees. The Pilgrims were 3-1 winners in the reverse fixture in October.
Gillingham have won 12 of their last 14 home games in all competitions against Plymouth (D2), winning each of their last eight encounters.
Plymouth have won two of their last three games against Gillingham in all competitions (L1), as many as they had in their previous 12 (D1 L9).
Gillingham have won four of their last six games played on Good Friday (D1 L1), winning their most recent match in April 2017.
Plymouth have picked up just two points from their last five League One away games (D2 L3), failing to score on four occasions in this run.
Plymouth have conceded 20 goals in the final 15 minutes of League One action this season; more than any other side in the division.
