Team news, tickets, travel and more...

Gillingham v Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 14th September 2019 (kick off 3pm)
Priestfield Stadium
Referee: James Adcock

Top of the league Wycombe take their longest League 1 unbeaten stretch in 24 years to Priestfield on Saturday, to meet a Gillingham side who've made a slower start to the new campaign than new boss Steve Evans might have liked.

The former Leeds and Peterborough manager has overseen one win in eight league and cup matches so far after a busy summer of recruitment, but their last league game at Priestfield - a 5-0 win over Bolton - showed signs of the potential they're capable of, particularly in front of goal.

Wanderers' phenomenal home record of four wins and 12 goals hasn't quite been matched on the road, where they've drawn all three matches and scored and conceded just once.

A draw was also the outcome on their last visit to Kent, when they held a two-goal lead at half-time before the Gills bounced back to force a 2-2 result, with Josh Parker - now of Wycombe - netting the equaliser.

Take the southbound M25 (s/p Heathrow). Continue forward at J5 onto the M26 (s/p Maidstone, Channel Tunnel). After 10 miles, continue forward onto the M20. Exit at J6 taking the A229 s/p Chatham. Ascend Bluebell Hill and at the junction with the M2 follow signs to Margate, Dover to join the M2. Exit the M2 at junction 4 onto the A278. Follow signs for Gillingham driving over two roundabouts before taking the first exit off the third roundabout onto the A2. Continue until you come to the next roundabout (Premier Inn to your left) and take the third exit onto the A289. At the first roundabout take the first exit onto Cornwallis Avenue. Continue along Cornwallis Avenue over the traffic lights before turning right into Toronto Road. Take the second left off Toronto into Redfern Avenue, where you will see the Priestfield Stadium on your left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 89 (approx. journey time one and a half hours)

Recommended area for car parking
There is a residents only parking scheme in operation around Priestfield Stadium. There is a cheap pay and display car park on Railway Street near Gillingham station, which is less than 10 minutes’ walk from the ground. Another option is at Our Lady of Gillingham Catholic Church on Ingram Street (ME7 1YL). Again, it is only a ten-minute walk from the church to the stadium.

Using the train?
Gillingham is served by trains from London Victoria (every 15mins), Charing Cross (every 30mins), St Pancras and Stratford International (both located on the same line, every 30mins).

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 11,582 (all seated). We have received an allocation of 600 tickets on one side of the Brian Moore Stand (on the Medway Stand side). The stand is of the temporary variety although it is of a good size and height - the views of the playing action are fine. As our supporters found out last December this stand is uncovered. Although the Club hands out free rain macs be prepared to get wet! Away supporters must walk down a very narrow terraced street to reach the away entrance.

Time on your hands?
Apparently the “Fleur De Lis” pub on Gillingham Road (a 10-minute walk away) has been designated by the local Police as an away fans pub. This pub has hot and cold snacks and is family friendly. Otherwise, the ground is walkable from the town centre, where there are a fair few pubs to be found. Otherwise, alcohol is made available to away fans to buy inside the stadium.

Match Reports

Report: Gillingham 2-0 Wycombe

Blues defeated for the first time this season.

14 September 2019

A second-half double from Mikael Ndjoli condemned Wanderers to a first defeat of the season at Priestfield on Saturday.

After an uneventful first half, the game was settled by a brace from the Gills' summer signing, who blasted home following excellent play from Brandon Hanlan before converting a penalty following a foul on Olly Lee.

Gareth Ainsworth made three changes to the side that defeated Lincoln City to move top of League 1 seven days earlier, as Matt Bloomfield missed out as a precaution following his head injury, and David Wheeler and Scott Kashket made way for Alex Pattison and Adebayo Akinfenwa, with Nnamdi Ofoborh also coming into the side for his first ever senior start.

The Gills claimed of a virus in midweek which had affected their preparations, with leading scorer and former Chairboy Alex Jakubiak reduced to a role on the bench.

An uneventful opening 10 minutes concluded with a fine passing move, hinging round the midfield pivot of Ofoborh, which resulted in Alex Samuel’s low shot being blocked behind for a corner, from which Anthony Stewart’s first-time effort was cleared from danger as it bounced across the face of goal.

Samuel was proving a lively runner in attack, and poked a chance wide of the near-post after getting ahead of his man to meet a low Nick Freeman cross on 18 minutes, but the striker was then poleaxed in one of two crunching tackles from Evans’ men, eventually being deemed okay to continue after treatment, but being replaced by Kashket five minutes later after another strong challenge.

Freeman flashed a volley at goal moments later after Akinfenwa knocked down Jacobson’s deep free-kick, with Jack Bonham parrying it behind for a corner, and Jacobson almost had another goal to shout about with his back-post curling delivery almost finding the net, but ultimately bouncing wide for another corner after a challenge between Anthony Stewart and the defender.

Gillingham hadn’t registered a shot in the first 33 minutes but nearly opened the scoring when Olly Lee’s free-kick was flicked on and Max Ehmer found space at the back post, only to be denied by the boot of Ryan Allsop with a low side-footed effort.

That was it in terms of chances during a largely forgettable first half, and with no changes in personnel at the interval, the start of the second period followed a similar pattern.

Mikael Mandron delivered a weak header into the arms of Allsop from a deep free-kick, before Nick Freeman’s low near-post effort was collected comfortably by Bonham.

Evans made Gillingham’s first change on 58 minutes, withdrawing Mandron for Brandon Hanlan, who supplied the winner in the fixture between the sides last February, and he was instantly involved in the hosts making the breakthrough. His smart touch down the left saw him turn away from Stewart and dart into the box, ultimately squaring for Mikael Ndjoli who smashed home into the top corner.

Kashket was denied a clear run on goal by an excellent last-ditch challenge from Tom O’Connor following an Akinfenwa flick-on, and Ofoborh went close with a fizzing effort from distance before Giles Phillips and David Wheeler came into the fray, with Jacobson and Jack Grimmer making way.

It meant a change in shape for Wycombe, going 3-4-1-2 for the final 20 minutes, with Wheeler and Freeman out wide in midfield.

However they were barely on the pitch for a minute when Gills won a penalty for an alleged foul by Phillips on Olly Lee, and Ndjoli fired home his second of the game, beating Allsop away to his right.

Lee was replaced by Ben Pringle in the Gills’ second change of the game, while Wheeler and Freeman fired over when well placed as nothing was quite able to click in front of goal.

But there was no way back, and Wanderers were forced to endure that sinking feeling for the first time this season, eager to put things right when Accrington visit Adams Park on Tuesday.
