Bristol Rvs. travel to take on Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Pirates will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The last time the two teams met at Gillingham was back in February 2002, over five years ago, the The Gills carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a F.A. Cup match.
