Can goal-shy EFL basement boys Gillingham shock Leicester?

What do James Maddison and the entire Gillingham squad have in common? Both have just seven league goals this season.

Welcome to the FA Cup third round where the biggest of giant-killings can happen. Arguably the biggest of the round could come at the Priestfield Stadium as EFL bottom club Gillingham host 2021 winners Leicester.

Life is pretty dire for the Gills at the bottom of League Two and without a league win in 11 matches. But much of the disappointment that their supporters have faced could be forgotten if they complete an astonishing cupset against Brendan Rodgers' side.

Leicester may just take one eye away from the cup this season, with the Foxes sitting two points above the relegation zone at the moment and will want to prioritise a mid-table finish in the second half of the season.

Meanwhile, Gillingham already have one cup shock to their name this season, as they dumped out a strong Brentford side in the Carabao Cup third round on penalties.
