History of the Gillingham v Norwich City fixture

Norwich City travel to take on Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Canaries 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 September 2003, over five years ago, with Norwich City inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the The Gills in a League Division One match.
