Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler is hoping to have three key players back for the visit of Torquay.
Strikers Adebayo Akinfenwa and Cody McDonald have returned to training after shaking off knocks but it is not known whether Saturday's game could come too soon for the two frontmen.
If both strikers do fail to make the squad, Dennis Oli will be the lone-striker once again.
Danny Spiller has also returned to training and could be among the Gills substitutes while striker Mark McCammon is definitely ruled out by a recurrence of an ankle injury.
Stefan Payne is pushing for a start after impressing in recent reserve team outings while Danny Jackman could return to the squad if he shakes off an ankle knock in time.
