Gillingham or Port Vale to win as the League 1 season continues with weekend games, with all played on Saturday.

Then again, which is more than possible of course, it could be a draw!

Among this schedule is a game for us with a 3pm kick-off at Priestfield

In the last game the winless run against Walsall continued for Gillingham when the Saddlers went away with a two-one win to leave it nine-matches without a win for the Gills against them with it, more importantly at this stage, seeing us suffer a blow to our promotion hopes.

A chance to take the lead came our way after a Paul Downing handball gave Gillingham a penalty but Luke Norris saw this saved by Walsall ‘keeper Neil Etheridge.

Walsall made the most of that with Milan Lalkovic curling the visitors into the lead midway through the second half with Jordy Hiwula doubling the lead 10-minutes later to leave Gillingham with a mountain to climb.

Norris did score a bicycle kick late on but with his deep into injury-time it was a mere consolation for the Gills with us dropping to sixth and now just three-points ahead of Barnsley who could threaten our play-off place!

What will happen in this one though?

The fixtures are.

Saturday 16th April 2016
Chesterfield v Sheff Utd 13:00
Burton v Barnsley 15:00
Colchester v Peterborough 15:00
Coventry v Millwall 15:00
Crewe v Scunthorpe 15:00
Doncaster v Wigan 15:00
Fleetwood v Oldham 15:00
Gillingham v Port Vale 15:00
Rochdale v Blackpool 15:00
Shrewsbury v Bradford 15:00
Swindon v Bury 15:00
Walsall v Southend 15:00

The defeat to Walsall leaves Gillingham worrying somewhat for a play-off place with the chasing pack closing in.

A win against Port Vale is needed tomorrow to keep this in the Gills’ hands.

But will this happen?

Whatever the line up expectancy will be high and ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which obviously requires you to vote in the latest poll one of three ways….

Gillingham win
Port Vale win
