Forest make the journey to Kent knowing they have to get all three points to have any hope of staying in an automatic promotion place. With top of the table Swansea playing third placed Lucky Leeds, the Reds could drop out if they fail to do the necessary at the Priestfield.
The Gills have drifted in and out of the relegation placings all season and presently sit in 18th, just four points from the drop zone. New boss Mark Stimson saw his side pick up a valuable point in the Boxing Day game with Southend, a result he will use to raise the confidence of his inconsistent team.
For the second time since leaving us this time last year, we will get the chance to renew acquaintances with former City Ground favourite Nicky Southall. The former Red nowadays plays at right back. Sentiment will have to be put to one side, as we need the points to stay in the title race.
The Gills will definitely be without Stuart Thurgood, who begins a three match suspension after being sent off in the game with Southend. Keeper Simon Royce could also miss out, as he is said to be coming to terms with a family illness.
Gillingham don't score too many, but Facey the six foot plus striker will have to be watched. He's only got two goals this campaign, but all barren spells have to end sometimes, let's hope it's not against us.
Forest have just had the bad news regarding Tyson's hamstring, so he'll definitely be out. Bennett could be in contention after recovering from the same injury. Also available is Kelvin Wilson who's just come back from a thigh strain and came on as a sub in the game against Oldham.
Agogo is the divisions second top scorer with 10. He's in a fine run of form and will be looking to add to his tally, before he goes off to the ACON.
Earlier this season at the City Ground we put in a fine display to win 4-0. Last season we beat the Gills on three occasions. At home in the league 1-0 and away 1-0. We also won away 2-1 in the JPT. In 17 league meetings between the two sides. Forest have won 9, lost 4 and drawn 4.
3-0 to the good guys.
