Gillingham v Leicester City in the FA Cup Third Round from Priestfield Stadium



Matchday Guide for you to use

The FA Cup is back in England as the New Year brings with it hopes and dreams of the football minnows.

There is a bumper coupon of fixtures this Saturday afternoon as League Two Gillingham will welcome Premier League Leicester City to the Priestfield Stadium, as both teams battle for a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The Foxes have been going through a rough patch lately with the pressure once again starting to mount on boss Brendan Rogers.

This does have the look of a potential banana skin for Leicester, and they’ll be looking for a straightforward win with no replays.

Brendan Rogers is sure to make a few changes to his team for this one. Jamie Vardy could feature to boost his confidence as he is in dire need of a goal or two.

James Maddison is still coming back to full fitness following his World Cup stint while Dewsbury-Hall and Bouba are unlikely to feature.

Zambian striker Patson Daka could make an appearance up front for the Foxes.

Of course, the match is on TV and there are plenty of live streaming options available if you want to watch the game.

Both teams have not exactly enjoyed their best run of form recently with both struggling in their respective divisions.

While Gillingham have lost four matches in a row in League Two, Leicester City are coming off three consecutive losses.

Two defeats to Liverpool and Newcastle Utd respectively put the fans in sombre mood but a 1-0 home defeat to Fulham FC in their last game was pretty much a disaster for Leicester City.

That said, anything other than a comfortable win for the Foxes would be a surprise to many today but the home side really don’t have anything to lose.

We should expect a few goals today. On one hand, Leicester City have no clean sheets in their last three games, allowing two goals per game on average in that stretch.

Similarly, Gillingham have seen their defense breached in all of their last seven matches.

On that note, we should expect goals at both ends but its a game which ultimately Premier League outfit Leicester City should breeze through.

This third round FA Cup tie has a kick off time of 12:30 BST with the game being played at Gillingham’s Priestfield Stadium.
