MATCH PREVIEW | Gillingham v Charlton

Take an in-depth look ahead to Saturday's trip to Gillingham...

With two games of the regular season left to play, Charlton's fate is all-but sealed with preparations for the play-offs beginning in earnest. Although a second-place finish is still mathematically possible ahead of the trip to Priestfield Stadium, it remains extremely unlikely, but Lee Bowyer will be keen to keep momentum going heading into the post-season campaign in front of another sold-out away end of travelling fans.

Gillingham's fate, meanwhile, is also very nearly sealed, but will be wanting a positive victory to guarantee their safety for another season.

Lee Bowyer revealed that he has a few injury worries ahead of the short journey to Kent. Lyle Taylor is a doubt with a tight groin, while Patrick Bauer and Jonny Williams have struggled with minor knee complaints. Krystian Bielik is also doubtful after falling on his shoulder last week.

However, there could be opportunity for Jake Forster-Caskey and Lewis Page to get more valuable minutes as they continue their returns from injury with the duo having played another U23 fixture on Thursday.

Gillingham will be hoping to welcome back Callum Reilly after sitting out recently with a muscle strain, while former Addick Ricky Holmes this week returned to his parent club Sheffield United after a back injury ruled him out for the rest of the season having failed to make an appearance for Gills.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer: ""Saturday is going to be tough, Gillingham is a tough place to go, they’ve got players that can hurt you. I see that Regan Charles-Cook and Brandon Hanlan scored against Plymouth, two of our old players, so they’re going to be wanting to prove a point so it’s going to be a tough game. Every game from now is going to be tough."

Gillingham boss Steve Lovell: “We want to put on a good performance on Saturday. Lee Bowyer has put together a team who have done brilliantly this season."

(Note: Steve Lovell parted company with Gillingham on Friday evening, ahead of Saturday’s match)

The Addicks and Gills have met on 33 previous occasions with Charlton winning 15 times and losing six, with the remaining 12 games ending in draws.

The last meeting ended in a 2-0 victory for Lee Bowyer's men at The Valley in December with Ben Reeves and Tariqe Fosu both netting in the first half.

Lee Swabey will be the man in the middle at the Priestfield. He has taken charge of 28 games this term, brandishing 102 yellow cards and eight reds.

He last refereed Charlton back in October for the record 8-0 victory at Stevenage in the Checkatrade Trophy.

There will be 2,400 Addicks cheering their side on form the SOLD OUT away end on Saturday, with no tickets left for purchase.
