[ 27 Apr 24 ] GILLS v Doncaster Rovers Match Thread

Postby Garawa » Sat Apr 13, 2024 10:07 pm

- The Gills have won 2 and lost 2 of their last 4 home games on the final day of the season. Those 2 losses are the only defeats in the last 10 seasons. In the previous 21 seasons in the 4th tier (excluding Div 4 South), the Gills ended at Priestfield 9 times without defeat, winning 7.
- The Gills have an impressive record against Doncaster, winning 37 and losing just 16 with a further 20 meetings being drawn. Doncaster have won 2 of the last 3 meetings whilst the Gills have won 3 of the last 5.
- Doncaster last won at Priestfield in December 2018. Since then, they are winless in 5 league and cup visits with the Gills winning 4 of them including successive 1-0 victories in 2022/3 and 2012/2.
- Doncaster have won 10 games in a row, as many wins as they had managed in their previous 30 league and cup games. Rovers are unbeaten in 11 league games home and away and have lost just 1 of their last 17 league games since a 5-1 home defeat to Stockport in January.
- Despite scoring a first half goal in their last 2 games, the Gills are still the lowest scorers before the break (18). They have conceded 24, just 2 more than the total Doncaster conceded from their first 23 games. They let in just 11 in 22 games since - the 2 on Saturday being their first in 10 games.
