Preview: Duff on Gillingham

14 April 2022

Michael Duff believes Gillingham will be a very different side to play against on Friday to the one his team have already faced four times this season.

Already the Gills have been opponents in the League, once in the Carabao Cup and twice in the FA Cup first round.

Those matches in the first half of the season were under a different manager though when Steve Evans, now in the dugout at League Two Stevenage, was in position at Priestfield.

They visit the Jonny-Rocks Stadium this Saturday with former Cardiff City boss Neil Harris looking to lead them away from relegation trouble and Duff has been impressed with the improvements he's made in his time in charge in Kent.

"They've got a different manager, a different way of playing - I think he's done a brilliant job Neil," he said.

"I think they were ten points adrift when he got the job. People thought they'd maybe nearly done it a week ago but a couple of results have gone against them in terms of other people winning. It's really close.

"I think they've kept six clean sheets in 14. He has got them really organised. You've always got a chance when you've got someone like Vadaine Oliver."
