History of the Huddersfield Town v Gillingham fixture

Huddersfield play host to Gillingham at Galpharm Stadium on Monday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Terriers are clearly on top, beating their opponents 4 times from 7 games.

The last time the two teams met at Huddersfield was just over four years ago, in February 2001, with Gillingham inflicting a narrow 2-3 defeat upon the Terriers in a League Division One match.
