Gillingham wait on Ryan Jackson fitness ahead of Scunthorpe meeting

Gillingham have a doubt over defender Ryan Jackson ahead of the visit of promotion-chasing Scunthorpe.

Jackson was forced off towards the end of last weekend's win at Bury with a groin problem, so 20-year-old Mitch Dickenson is on stand-by to come into the side.

Midfielder Scott Wagstaff will be assessed on a knee injury, along with defender Deji Oshilaja (groin) and Chris Herd (knee).

Foward Rory Donnelly (ankle) and defender Bradley Garmston (hamstring) continue their recovery, while Aaron Morris (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Scunthorpe go into the game still third in League One despite Tuesday's defeat at Charlton extending their winless streak to eight games.

Boss Graham Alexander could be without Josh Morris, who was withdrawn at half-time at The Valley requiring stitches in his foot.

Conor Townsend missed the trip to Charlton after reporting an injury while Sam Mantom is still expected to be absent.

Neal Bishop is set to replace Morris in the Iron's starting line-up while Tom Hopper could also figure after coming off the bench in south-east London.
