One to watch:
Gib: Lee Casciaro:

As usual Gib’s best player has been picked for tonight’s game.  The Lincoln veteran will start the game up front, presumably with Al Greene, then drop into midfield as the game nears the end, if the situation requires him to do so

 

Estepona: Pedro:

Although Estepona have been shy of goals, with just 8 goals in 9 games, Pedro has two of them, and presuming he travels with the squad tonight, he should give Jordan Perez, who should star tonight in goal plenty of challenges.

 

Conclusion:
Should be a good game tonight.  Being a friendly, Estepona will be likely to take it a bit easier than their league games, and rest several players, whilst Gibraltar will turn the tempo up against their more illustrious opponents.  Predict a 2-1 victory for Gibraltar tonight, with the national team riding their luck a bit on the way, and probably gaining from a few ‘dodgy’ refereeing decisions.
