Match Preview

Gowling blow for Gills Josh Gowling is unlikely to be fit for Gillingham's home npower League Two match with Oxford. Gowling is struggling and manager Andy Hessenthaler is likely to call upon Garry Richards - who replaced the central defender in midweek - should he fail to recover. While the Gowling news is a blow, Gillingham have also received several boosts on the injury front. Tony Sinclair is scheduled to resume full training on Monday after a foot complaint, while Andy Barcham trained for the first time on Thursday following an ankle injury. Dennis Oli returned to action in the midweek draw with Stevenage after a two-month absence with an ankle problem and is in contention for a start after coming off the bench. Luke Rooney and Curtis Weston, who were also substitutes at the Lamex Stadium, are pushing for starts. Damien Batt will miss out for Oxford through suspension. The 26-year-old received a straight red card 66 minutes into Tuesday evening's 2-1 defeat at Southend for a hefty challenge on midfielder Anthony Grant. Batt will therefore miss the Gills clash as he starts a three-game ban, meaning Ben Purkiss is likely to replace him at right-back. Purkiss has impressed since joining from York in the summer and is likely to be given a starting berth at Priestfield. Batt's ban is the only concern for manager Chris Wilder as there are no other fresh suspension or injury worries.

Match Report

Gills held to draw Cody McDonald saw a last-minute header come back off the post as Gillingham were denied the points despite dominating second-half possession in their goalless draw with Oxford. The in-form Norwich loanee thought he had snatched all the points when he beat Oxford keeper Ryan Clarke from close-range - only for the U's to be saved by the woodwork. The Gills flew out of the traps and almost took the lead in the third minute when Matt Lawrence's header was saved by Ryan Clarke. James Constable had the best chance of the game for the visitors, but his close-range shot on the turn whimpered into the side netting in the ninth minute. His strike partner Tom Craddock, who has scored in five of the U's last seven games, also squandered a half-chance when he found himself unmarked after a quick free-kick, but he scuffed his effort wide seven minutes before the break. McDonald's strike partner Adebayo Akinfenwa spurned the game's best chance when he pulled a volley wide from eight yards out after Clarke had spilled John Nutter's free-kick. Oxford's best second-half chance came when Gills midfielder Kevin Maher inadvertently sent Steve MacLean through on goal but Maher was rescued by a tackle from Lawrence. Substitute Simon Hackney also came close for the visitors but he drilled his effort across the face of the goal in the 79th minute before McDonald's last-gasp chance.
