The third round match has been chosen for live TV coverage by BT Sport, kicking-off at 6.16pm on Sunday, January 5.

Prices haven’t been announced yet but discounts will be given to those with season tickets and/or those who were at the second round game against Doncaster.

Fans have been advised to keep hold of ticket stubs as proof of attendance.

Gills chairman Paul Scally said: “Due to the fact that the kick-off time has been changed we need to implement this on our system and check everything is working as it should before they go on sale.

“Initially, season ticket holders will have priority, and a few days later those who came to the Doncaster fixture will also get a period where they can secure their seats before they go on general sale.

“In both cases, tickets will have a slight discount attached to them before full prices are applied.

“We will put the finishing touches to our plans on Monday and will likely go live on Tuesday lunchtime.”

The club are expecting a busy period and fans are being advised to purchase tickets online, with phonelines at Priestfield “inundated” as soon as the draw was made.
