History of the Brighton & Hove Albion v Gillingham fixture

Gillingham face a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion at Withdean Stadium on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 30 out of 44 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in March 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 2 thriller, in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Brighton & Hove Albion's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Seagulls have scored 6, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Gillingham is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the The Gills have hit 5 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Brighton & HA are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 10 points from their 11 games thus far. Gillingham's 14 points from 11 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position.
