Gills set for Charlton sell-out

Gillingham boss Mark Stimson
Stimson took his side back into League One with promotion last season

Gillingham's League One derby against Charlton is heading for a sell out.

Charlton have sold their allocation of tickets and Gillingham have only 1,000 tickets left for the first league derby between the sides for 28 years.

"It's the best game of the season," Gillingham boss Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent.

"It's the game that you all want to be involved in. We can't get away from the fact that we are playing one of the best teams in the division."

He added: "When the fixtures come out you can't wait to see Charlton at home and Charlton away."

"But at home, with our backing, we've done it numerous times since I've been here, I see no reason why we should have any fear going into that game."

The two clubs fell out in September when Gillingham failed to sign Charlton striker Chris Dickson.
