Match Preview

Defensive woes for Gills Gillingham have a host of defensive problems heading into the home clash against Port Vale. Garry Richards (thigh), Danny Jackman (knee) and Matt Fish (hip) all require late fitness tests after sustaining injuries in Tuesday`s Johnstone`s Paint Trophy defeat to Barnet, while captain Andy Frampton - the fourth member of Gills` backline in midweek - definitely misses out with a calf injury. Fellow defender Barry Fuller (knee) continues to be sidelined but Andy Hessenthaler could be handed some respite with Joe Martin (calf) rated as 50/50 as he looks to make his return. Hessenthaler will weigh up his options before deciding whether to recall Simon King from his loan at Plymouth to cover. Elsewhere, Lewis Montrose misses out as he serves an automatic one-match suspension having picked up his fifth booking of the season in midweek, and he joins fellow midfielders Danny Spiller (ankle) and Jack Payne (knee) as well as striker Adam Birchall (knee) in the stands. Aside from Martin`s potential comeback, there is some good news for Hessenthaler as midfielder Charlie Lee returns from suspension and striker Danny Kedwell is expected to be fit having sat out training on Thursday with a chest problem. Port Vale will be without on-loan Rangers striker Andrew Little for their trip to Priestfield - where manager Micky Adams began his playing career. The 22-year-old will be absent because of international commitments, having been called up by Northern Ireland for Friday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Estonia and the clash with Italy four days later. Marc Richards will again lead the line after returning from suspension to score both goals in Saturday's 2-0 win over Rotherham last weekend. Goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson is also a certain starter after impressing in his last two matches having replaced Chris Martin. Lee Collins' spell on the sidelines is to continue after the defender underwent an operation on his injured groin on Tuesday.

Match Report

Kedwell saves Gills Danny Kedwell struck his fifth goal of the season to earn Gillingham a 1-1 draw against Port Vale. The visitors took the lead through Marc Richards' third goal in two games but Kedwell equalised early in the second-half with his third penalty of the campaign. Gillingham almost got off to a flier when Kedwell charged down Vale keeper Stuart Tomlinson's clearance but the rebound went the wrong side of the post. Port Vale fired a warning shot when Doug Loft crossed to the back post where Adam Yates nodded back across goal for Tom Pope whose header hit the bar. Pope then turned provider for Vale's opener in the 33rd-minute when he flicked on a long ball to Richards who poked home. The Gills equalised with 63 minutes gone when Frank Nouble was brought down by Rob Taylor and although Kedwell's first effort was saved, a re-take was ordered and he made no mistake second time around. Tomlinson denied the Gills a winner five minutes from time when he kept out Matt Fish's fierce drive.
