Gills remain hopeful of Howe return
The forward missed Tuesday's disappointing home defeat by Tranmere with a dead leg but has returned to training and could be fit to start. Garry Richards has also returned to training after a bout of conjunctivitis and he should return to the centre of defence. On-loan Tristan Plummer injured his ankle last week and has returned to parent club Bristol City for treatment. His loan spell is due to end next week so there is some doubt whether he will return to Priestfield at all. Midfielder Adam Miller is pushing for a start as Stimson ponders changes to his starting line-up as he attempts to halt a run of nine games without a win. Simon King is stepping up his recovery from an ankle injury, but is still nowhere near match fitness.
