Match Preview

Birchall blow for Gills Adam Birchall is the key omission from Gillingham`s ranks as they prepare for their opening match of the season at home to Cheltenham. The striker, a summer signing from Dover, had not even been at Priestfield for a week when he had to be stretchered off during a 3-0 pre-season friendly victory over Welling. He sustained damage to his cruciate knee ligament, subsequently ruling him out for at least the opening few months of the season and more likely until the new year. Manager Andy Hessenthaler earlier this week handed valuable game time to strikers Dennis Oli and Stefan Payne - who have been suffering with niggling back and groin injuries - which could provide options for reinforcements to aid new arrival Danny Kedwell in attack. However Kedwell has been used as a lone striker to good effect in pre-season and Hessenthaler has that option available to him. Fellow new boy Andy Frampton has been handed the captain`s armband for the forthcoming campaign and will skipper the Gills from the heart of defence against a Cheltenham side who claimed a 1-1 draw at Priestfield on the opening day of last season. Andy Gallinagh is Cheltenham`s only absentee as boss Mark Yates decides how many of his summer signings will make their debuts. Defender Gallinagh has been ruled out for 10 days with a calf muscle strain and will miss the trip to Priestfield, incidentally where the Robins secured a 1-1 draw on the opening day of last season. Midfielder Luke Summerfield became the club`s 10th new addition of the summer when he penned a one-year deal on Thursday and the former Plymouth man will be hoping to make his bow. As will the likes of striker Darryl Duffy, midfielder Russell Penn and centre-back Alan Bennett, who has been appointed as the club`s new captain for the forthcoming campaign. Teenage full-back Kyle Haynes has joined non-league Salisbury on a three-month loan deal and so will not be involved.

Match Report

Montrose inspires Gills success Lewis Montrose's clinical strike midway through the first half proved decisive as Gillingham clinched a winning 1-0 start to the new season. The Gills' victory was well-deserved although they were forced to endure a nervous last 10 minutes after substitute Luke Rooney was given a straight red card following a rash challenge on Brian Smikle. Chris Whelpdale went close for the home side after cutting in from the right-hand side and curling his drive just over the bar. And they finally went ahead after 26 minutes, Montrose latching on to Jack Payne's deflected shot to drill home. The home side almost extended their lead four minutes after the restart when Whelpdale's effort wrong-footed Brown, forcing him to scramble to push the ball past the post. Cheltenham struggled to create chances but did almost find an equaliser after 57 minutes through Danny Andrew, whose curling free-kick whistled just wide of Ross Flitney's left-hand corner. And the visitors were still unable to make a breakthrough, despite Rooney being shown his marching orders after 83 minutes.
