Correct, last season they had a decent away record but at home they have struggled somewhat and their best striker Eaves (two goals against us last match of the season) has departed.
They have benefited from a rest over the weekend without the journey to Bury, with us just having a day to rest up before leaving for the south east.
We took a hundred there last season once again for a Tuesday night clash when the Fonz scored the only goal of the match.
3-0 Blackpool ,
although at the back of my mind I am reminded of our great start to 2013 , unbeaten and went to Bournemouth with Foggy on the Saturday but the following Tuesday night (our first evening game of the season away) having taken the lead against Millwall ( who were holding up the league,) we somehow managed to lose 3-1.
Wasn't Bishop's finest moment just before half time.

About time this happened,get some game time into the squad players,without the need to send them out on loan.
Yes I can remember those days very well and our side in the Central league was often near the top of the league for a good number of years.
You would turn up with a good few thousand present as the working week included Saturday morning for many in employment so away travel was limited.
Any of our first team who had been out for an injury would appear for a game or two so it wasn't unusual to see players such as Ray Charnley turning out for the reserves.
Likewise pre season there would be a Tangerine v the Whites at Bloomfield road, I believe at one time in the fifties we had including the youth teams around five or six sides.
just looking at an old programme with us down in div 2 (NOW THE CHAMPIONSHIP) in second spot in mid October and the reserves in the Central league in third spot behind Everton and Man U, with Liverpool and Man C below us.
I must be missing something when I see the Volkswagen Golf is Electric ad, does it really upset people?https://metro.co.uk/2019/08/14/first-adverts-banned-under-new-gender-stereotype-rules-10562595/
If you take junction 4 M2 and at the roundabout take a left A278 travel for 2 miles crossing over 2 roundabouts on the way until you reach a very large rounabout on the A2
Take a left heaing towards chatham and on the outside lane go a few hundred yards to the next roundabout, take a right A289 heading for the Medway tunnel.
approx 1 mile and having crossed one roundabout at the bottom of the hill after a long sweeping curve in the road take a very sharp left at the next roundabout, it is a single lane road easy to miss lower rainham road.
Go approx 300 metres and on the right there is a pub THE PLOUGH AND CHEQUERS with a road right opposite Grove road, park there. I will be in the pub approx 6.30 pm
It is ten to twelve minutes to walk to the ground, , if I miss you just walk up Grove road and go round the bend apporx 100 metres and 50 methres on from the bend on your left you will see an alley.
Go up the alley into Grange road, turn right until the roundabout then take a left and walk up the road under the railway bridge take 2nd right and you will see Gills fans making there way the last few hunrded yards..
