Gillingham in strong shape as ailing Coventry visit

Gillingham have no fresh injury or suspension worries as they welcome Coventry to Priestfield in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

The promotion-hunting Gills are unbeaten in four games and manager Justin Edinburgh has a number of key players nearing a return to the side.

Defender John Egan, who has been out of the squad since mid-February with a knee injury, is not expected to feature this weekend but could be back in time to face Sheffield United on April 9.

Top scorer Bradley Dack is also back in training after picking up a hamstring injury and may be involved in two weeks' time.

Coventry boss Tony Mowbray has injury problems as the Sky Blues try to arrest their slide, which has seen them lose six of their last eight league games.

Andy Rose (hamstring), Marc-Antoine Fortune (calf) and Darius Henderson (calf) are all nursing injuries.

Midfielder James Maddison, who suffered a hip knock while away with the England Under-20 side, is also not expected to feature.

Goalkeeper Lee Burge (shoulder) and defender Reda Johnson (hamstring) remain sidelined for the season with their serious injuries.
