GILLINGHAM V WIGAN ATHLETIC
SKY BET LEAGUE ONE
TUESDAY 17TH OCTOBER 2017
The Gills will be buoyed by their win at Peterborough United last weekend thanks to Lee Martin’s long range strike, however will come up against a Latics side who have won their last four games.
Michael Jacobs, Nick Powell and Ivan Toney were on target in a 3-0 win against the Shrimpers at the DW Stadium last Saturday, a result which moved Latics to first place.
A win this evening at Priestfield Stadium would help to cement top spot in the third tier ahead of this weekend’s trip to Bloomfield Road to face Blackpool.
Official betting partner Mr Green has boosted Latics to win to nil to 17/10 - back it here.
