Danny Kedwell hopes Gillingham can avenge defeat in the televised game against Wolverhampton Wanderers
Danny Kedwell is hoping Gillingham can dish out some revenge when they meet Wolves at Priestfield.
The Gills were comprehensively beaten 4-0 by the promotion chasers earlier on in the season.
And the game on Friday (7.45pm) will not only see the Gills get a chance to avenge that defeat but also put on a show in front of the live TV cameras, something they haven’t done for some time.
“We do owe them one,” said Kedwell, who may miss the game through injury. “It could be a good thing that it’s on TV because since I have been here, we haven’t won on TV. It’s about time we changed that and what a time that would be, against a club like Wolves.”
Gillingham have already appeared on live TV this season, as BT Sport broadcast their FA Cup first round replay at non-league Brackley Town. The first game saw the Gills snatch a late draw and in the second they suffered an embarrassing defeat.
The Gills conceded three goals in the opening half-hour against Wolves last time out.
“That wasn’t a good start and when you concede early goals against a big club and a big crowd, your confidence goes,” said the 10-goal striker. "When you are 3-0 down, you think ‘how are we going to get out of this?’ We had to dig in and try not to lose by too many more.”
Gills boss Peter Taylor will be hoping Danny Hollands (knee), Amine Linganzi (calf) and Chris Whelpdale (ankle) will be fit for selection. Myles Weston (hamstring) is unlikely to feature.
