Gills waiting on Fish

Matt Fish will discover the extent of his knee injury ahead of Gillingham's Capital One Cup first-round tie at home to Bristol City.

The right-back was due to undergo a scan on Monday having been forced off just five minutes into Saturday'sseason-opening 1-0 defeat to Colchester.

Charlie Allen will also be assessed having missed out altogether due to a freak training ground injury which left him with an infected cut to his foot.

MylesWeston overcame a hamstring problem to feature as a second-half substitute against the U's and will again hope to be involved at Priestfield.

Bristol City will be without Louis Carey for the trip.

The experienced defender will miss the tie with a dead leg while the Robins will check on former West Ham striker Sam Baldock who suffered a kick to his Achilles.

Meanwhile head coach Sean O'Driscoll is unsure whether he will include winger Albert Adomah. The former Barnet man, whose future at the club is still up in the air, was left out of the squad that drew 2-2 with Bradford on Saturday and he may be left out again.

O'Driscoll has also confirmed that Stephen Pearson looks likely to require surgery on his ankle injury while Marlon Harewood will play for the Under-21s on Monday and looks set to be on the bench against the newly-promoted Gills.
