Deadline-day signing Sean Clare could go straight into the Gillingham team against Shrewsbury on Saturday.
The midfielder joined on loan from Sheffield Wednesday until January and is available for the Sky Bet League One fixture.
Josh White will not be playing after the midfielder, who scored 14 goals last season, had his contract terminated by mutual consent.
Goalkeeper Steve Arnold will be assessed by the club's medical staff after suffering a broken nose and damage to his teeth against Southend.
Shrewsbury full-back Joe Riley is pushing for a start after his dramatic winner against Coventry on Tuesday.
Riley had been out for four months with an ankle injury but came off the bench to score with a free-kick and seal a 3-2 victory for the Shrews.
On-loan forward Niall Ennis is still struggling with a knock while new signing Omar Beckles is likely to make way, despite making his debut in midweek.
Abumere Ogogo, Mat Sadler and Alex Rodman were among those rested and are all expected to return to the starting line-up.
