History of the Gillingham v Walsall fixture

Walsall pack their bags to visit Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 34 out of 51 times.

The previous match played between the two at Priestfield Stadium was within the last three years, in September 2007, the The Gills carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League One match.
