Gillingham have only 9 points left to play for in this year’s battle for League One promotion.

With the games dwindling down now at the real business end of the campaign as we find ourselves already through the first April scheduled games, it’s still all to play for for Gillingham and this is the run in we face.

Gillingham:
Sat 23 Shrewsbury Town (H)
Sat 30 Burton Albion (A)
Sun 8 Millwall (H)

Whether it’ll go down to the wire, or be confirmed ahead of time, here are the respective run in’s for the other sides seriously rivalling those valuable final spots.

Wigan Athletic:
Sat 23 Southend United (H)
Sat 30 Blackpool (A)
Sun 8 Barnsley (H)

Burton Albion:
Sat 23 Colchester United (A)
Sat 30 Gillingham (H)
Sun 8 Doncaster Rovers (A)

Bradford City:
Sat 23 Walsall (H)
Sat 30 Southend United (A)
Sun 8 Chesterfield (H)

Millwall:
Sat 23 Bury (A)
Sat 30 Oldham Athletic (H)
Sun 8 Gillingham (A)

Walsall:
Sat 23 Bradford City (A)
Tue 26 Shrewsbury Town (H)
Mon 2 Fleetwood Town (H)
Sun 8 Doncaster Rovers (A)

Barnsley:
Sat 23 Sheffield United (A)
Sat 30 Colchester United (H)
Sun 8 Wigan Athletic (A)

With Burton Albion on 78 points in second spot, and Gillingham ahead of them on 81, the automatic spots are out of reach but the Play Off route and Wembley seems far more likely with so few games left now.

The worry for Gillingham is Barnsley have closed the gap we held on them in seventh place, so the Play Off route is now potentially in limbo as well with the recent dip in form and results.
