Match Preview

Gills suffer King blow Gillingham host Northampton without Simon King after the defender suffered a further injury setback. The 27-year-old did not feature in the 5-1 victory over Stockport after suffering a bad reaction in training to his ankle injury. Manager Andy Hessenthaler said: "He has been working very hard and he is still going to be a little sore with that ankle for a long time and we have to manage him a little bit better." Full-back Matt Lawrence could switch to the centre of defence to cover King. Midfielder Luke Rooney has joined Eastbourne on loan while forward Cody McDonald could be handed a starting berth after his hattrick at Edgeley Park. Hessenthaler will also face a wait to see if midfielder Joe Martin has recovered in time from a hamstring injury. Northampton captain Andy Holt could again be pressed into service as an emergency striker. Holt - who started the season at centre-back but usually plays at left-back or left midfield - partnered Billy McKay in attack last weekend and created his goal in the 1-1 draw with Cheltenham. He may start there again as Craig King has returned to Leicester at the end of his loan spell and Leon McKenzie remains out with a thigh injury. Midfielder Kevin Thornton returned from illness as a substitute last weekend but pulled his hamstring and is now out for a further three weeks. Midfielder Ryan Gilligan is back in contention after his recovery from a bout of pneumonia.

Match Report

McDonald continues Gills surge Cody McDonald's seventh goal in his last six games downed Northampton and kept Gillingham's superb start to 2011 going with a 1-0 win. After netting a hat-trick against Stockport last week, McDonald continued his hot streak after volleying in on the half hour mark. Gillingham, who have now won seven of their last eight games, should have taken the lead on three minutes when Curtis Weston was put clean through but Chris Dunn in the Cobblers goal kept him out. McDonald twice went close, first dragging his shot just wide before forcing Dunn into a brilliant low save. But Dunn was finally beaten on the half hour mark when Josh Gowling nodded down Danny Spiller's freekick for the on-loan Norwich man to emphatically volley in. The one-way traffic continued after the break and again McDonald was at the heart of the action as he was played clean through on 57 minutes only to see his chip land on the roof of the net. McDonald also miscontrollled when played in by John Nutter and substitute Luke Rooney fired wide late on as Gillingham completely dominated the Cobblers.
