Saturday 26th
The Gills are not playing a Boxing Day game for the first time since the 2010/11 season. They hadn't lost a Boxing Day match in 6 seasons with 4 of those games being away from home. They lost 3 of the 4 Boxing Day games before them, all of them at Priestfield.

Sunday 27th
Vadaine Oliver scored his 7th goal for the club on the 23rd game of the season, matching the totals from last season's top-scorers after 43 games. Here's how they compare:

Last season (43 games)
Jakubiak & Hanlan - 7
Mandron & Lee - 6

This season (27 games)
Oliver - 7
Graham & Samuel - 6

Monday 28th
The Gills haven't seen any league goals in the 10 minute period between the 31st and 40th minutes yet have scored or conceded 8 league goals in the 10 minute period before and 6 in the 10 minute spell after.

Tuesday 29th
Match day - Northampton v Gills (League 1)

Wednesday 30th
The Gills 1-2 half-time away deficit against Northampton was the first since March 2017 when they played Rochdale (the previous opposition). The 1-3 away result was the first since October 2018 when they played Plymouth (the next opposition).

Thursday 31st
In 2020 the Gills 15 home league matches have produced 6 wins and so too have their 16 away games. They have taken 3 more points from their away games. The totals are:
Home (L1): W6 - D3 - L6 (Win% 40.0)
Home (All): W9 - D5 - L8 (40.9%)
Away (L1): W6 - D6 - L4 (37.5%)
Away (All): W6 - D6 - W7 (31.6%)

Friday 1st
The Gills have only played on New Year's Day 5 times in the last 12 seasons but 3 of those 5 have come in each of the previous 3 seasons.
