All-time record v the Gills:

Remember me? Wayne Gray was heavily linked with the Gills back in May when the rumour mill suggested that we were on the verge of signing a player from Southend. Instead, we signed Mark Bentley and Duncan Jupp and the former MK Dons man has moved to Huish Park to sign for a team that the Gills have never beaten.
Man to watch: Arron Davies. A Welsh under-21 team-mate of Andrew Crofts, a lot rests on the young striker after the departure of Phil Jevons. Of any one of the Glovers’ strikers, he looks to be the most likely to step up and reach double figures.
2006/07 prospects: Yeovil stayed up quite comfortably last season but they will really feel the loss of Jevons, and even though Chris Cohen’s arrival on a permanent basis is a massive boost, aside from him they don’t appear to have significantly improved their squad and they will find themselves entrenched in the relegation battle.
