Gillingham midfielder Charlie Lee has stated that the League Two side will beat Middlesbrough in the League Cup.

Boro travel to Priestfield in the second round on Tuesday, having beaten Bury 2-1 in the first round.

"We're going to win," Lee told BBC Radio Kent. "We're not going into it expecting to lose.

"When they come out against a League Two team, they expect to win but if they've done any research they know they'll not have an easy game."

The Gills have a 100% record this season, including a 2-1 victory over Bristol City in the first round.

Since that match, the Gills have won all three league games under new manager Martin Allen and currently lie second in the table.

Such strong form has led Lee to fear nobody.

"No-one expects us to win," he continued. "The only people that do are the ones in the dressing room.

"The manager, he definitely thinks we can win. We'll go into it with confidence and we'll enjoy it 100%."
