The Hammers head into the game desperate to advance to the fourth round.
West Ham haven’t made it past the fourth round of the FA Cup since the 2015/16 season, and they have not reached the final of the competition since 2006.
The east London outfit have not won a major trophy since 1980, so David Moyes really should be taking the FA Cup very seriously indeed this season.
Gillingham away will be far from easy, however.
Steve Evans’ side are unbeaten in seven games in all competitions, and have lost just once since November 9th.
They have also lost just four games at home this season, so West Ham will have to be on their very best form, if they are to leave the Priestfield Stadium with a positive result.
If they do perform as well as they can, they should have no problem dispatching of the League One outfit.
The game kicks off at 18:16, and can be seen exclusively live on BT Sport.
