Gills Boss Expects Tough Game

Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler is expecting a tough game against the Bulls tonight.

He told the local press: "They are going to have a siege mentality and you would, because the manager and the coaches are going to want to keep Hereford in the league. They are going to make it difficult and fight for everything. We have to match that mentality and hopefully our football will come out on top."

Hessenthaler is expected to field an unchanged side for the fourth successive game with the XI consistently improving results. The Bulls have named the same XI in two games running only once this term.

One player Hessenthaler won't be able to call on is Rohan Ricketts. He had hoped to complete a deal for the forward but needed to offload players first to fund any deal. However the former Dover boss confirmed he had received 'no interest' in transfer listed duo Dennis Oli and Matt Lawrence since making them available ten days ago.
