Exeter City welcome Gillingham to St. James Park on Bank Holiday Monday looking to bounce back from their Boxing Day defeat at Southampton.

This is an extremely important match for the Grecians against a team who have only picked up a solitary point away from their Priestfield home all season. The Gills have the same number of points as City, and the Devon side realise the importance of this game with tough fixtures against Norwich and Leeds to follow in January.

Exeter City Team News:

Tottenham loanee Troy Archibald Henville will miss out after his sending off at Southampton. Dan Seaborne should be his replacement.

Player to watch: Adam Stansfield

The popular striker was terrific in the last home game with Southend.

Gillingham Team News:

Gillingham boss Mark Stimson will be without defender Josh Gowling through suspension, but Matt Fry could return to the back four after serving a one match ban.

Player to watch: Simeon Jackson

Jackson has been touted for a move to a Championship club, and the striker will pose a threat to the City defence.

Match Prediction:

Exeter City 2 Gillingham 0
A crucial match for both teams, and the Grecians must take advantage of the Gill`s travel sickness.
