Swansea City play their second away match in the space of 5 days as they visit the Priestfield Stadium to take on Jepson's Gillingham side.
An excellent 2-0 away win at Brentford on Tuesday saw us rise to 4th in the league and Kenny Jackett will be wanting a similar result tomorrow afternoon.
Gillingham manager, Jepson:
'It's nice to get back-to-back wins because they can be difficult to achieve in this league,' said the Gills boss.
'Hopefully, we can go on from there, but this weekend we are playing against a team who, according to reports from our scouts, are the best we have seen.
'They are a very powerful side, who have made a few additions from last season.
I'm feeling really sharp at the moment,''
'We are playing a lot of practice games in training and it has sharpened me up a lot.
'It's a good thing for the manager that he's got to chose between me and Trunds because most clubs would love to have that problem every week.''
Ronnie Jepson will be without Brent Sancho as he's out for 6 weeks with a leg injury.
Danny (not a) Jackman is back in the squad though after returning from a 1-match ban.
Loan keeper Darren Randolph is a doubt with a foot injury and another keeper Kelvin Jack is also struggling with a knee injury.
Quote from Vital Gillingham: 'Dave' was perhaps not at his best on Tuesday, but is a real cult hero in the making. A decent outlet up front, he will be hoping to net his second goal of the season - and first at home - when the Swans come to town.
Lee Trundle is still out injured which means Leon Knight keeps his place in the side after scoring 2 good goals at Brentford this week.
Jackett is likely to name an unchanged side with no new injury worries to report.
Monk and Owain-Tudur-Jones are still long-term casualties.
Scored 2 goals at Brentford and says he is feeling ''really sharp at the moment.'' He's averaged a goal every 2 games for the Swans so Gillingham will need to keep him quiet tomorrow if they want a good result.
Gillingham have won their last 2 games so they are also high on confidence. They beat Milwall in midweek at home and beat Doncaster away last Saturday.
Before then they hadn't won a game since the opening day of the season.
The Gills did the double over us last season so hopefully we can get some revenge and get our 3rd consecutive victory and also our first back to back away wins since Jackett's arrival more than 2 years ago.
If you haven't already done so, please predict tomorrow's score in our prediction league here
With both teams in confident mood and also winning their last 2 games I think the balance is there for a good game, but I think we'll do well for a 1-1 draw.
