Gillingham have several absentees for their trip to Northampton.
Goalkeeper Lance Cronin, who has been number two to Alan Julian this term, has a foot injury and will not be included in the squad, meaning youth team keeper Daren Hawkes will step up to the bench.
Curtis Weston came off after 30 minutes of the 1-1 draw with Torquay last week with a thigh injury and he will miss out.
Mark McCammon is still struggling with an ankle injury while Josh Gowling has a virus and is rated as doubtful.
Danny Jackman is back in training after an ankle problem, but the game will come too soon, while striker Adebayo Akinfenwa will be desperate to start against his former club.
