Match Preview

Spiller boost for Gills ahead of Boro encounter Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler has extended Danny Spiller`s contract prior to his team's clash with Stevenage. Spiller`s previous deal was set to expire on New Year's Eve but the midfielder, signed in the summer, has now penned a new 18-month agreement that will see him stay at Priestfield until the end of next season. Losing the 29-year-old would only have added to the selection problems facing Hessenthaler, who has a clutch of players out injured. Jack Payne (ankle ligaments) and Chris Palmer (knee) are definitely missing, while striker Dennis Oli is sidelined due to an ankle injury. Tony Sinclair (foot) will play no part and he could be joined by recent signing Joe Martin. Martin was forced off during the win over Port Vale on Tuesday and is a doubt after receiving six stitches to a head wound. Joel Byrom could be in contention for Stevenage. Byrom has been laid low for over four months thanks to a problem with one of his eyes and then his foot. The 24-year-old was due to feature against Oxford on Boxing Day, but two successive postponements mean he has to wait for Saturday's trip to Kent. Only a lack of match fitness may keep the midfielder out of the team, although extra days training may help his cause. Defender Darius Charles begins a three-match ban for a red card picked up in his team's last outing, the 1-0 loss to Northampton three weeks ago. Graham Westley will check on Darren Murphy (ankle) and Lee Boylan (calf), while Michael Bostwick returns from a ban.

Match Report

Akinfenwa seals Gills win Adebayo Akinfenwa nodded a first-half winner as Gillingham made it five wins in a row with a 1-0 triumph over Stevenage. The visitors could adjudge themselves unfortunate, seeing their winless streak stretch to five games after failing to make the most of their possession. The game started at a sluggish pace, with the first chance coming on 15 minutes when Cody McDonald saw his drive blocked by Stevenage keeper Chris Day. The visitors had little cutting edge and they had to wait until the half-hour mark before conjuring their first real sight of goal, Byron Harrison seeing his header pushed wide by Alan Julian. Stevenage appeared the better side, but all that changed on 38 minutes, the hosts taking the lead when Adebayo Akinfenwa glanced Danny Spiller's cross past Day. The visitors continued to press after the break, but McDonald wasted a host of chances to seal the win as the Gills played effectively on the break. Stevenage came close to a point late on when Julian produced smart stops from Rob Sinclair and Ben May respectively.
