Gillingham are a mid-table side in League Two. That having been said they are undefeated in their last six league games. Of the eight victories that they have produced in the division this season, seven of them have been on home soil. Their FA Cup campaign started against fellow League Two side Sunderland in the first round. The Gills needed extra time in a home replay to secure passage. In the last round they came up with a 3-0 home win over Doncaster.

West Ham News and Form – Can West Ham win at Gillingham?

West Ham are only two points above the drop zone in the Premier League. But after losing 9 games in a run of 12 top flight fixtures, David Moyes returned to replace the sacked Manuel Pellegrini and big things happened. The Hammers beat Bournemouth 4-0 and were full of attacking intent and desire. Something that had been sorely lacking.

West Ham don’t have great away form in the FA Cup. Last season they lost in the fourth round away at AFC Wimbledon. That is back to back FA Cup road losses that the Irons have suffered and are winless in four such fixtures (D2 L2). It has been only one win in their last seven away games in the competition. West Ham have won just two of their last nine away games in all competitions, including a 4-0 League Cup defeat at Oxford.
