Jackson missing for Latics clash
Jackson will be away on international duty with Canada on Saturday but Stimson will hand a first league start to Febian Brandy. The on-loan Manchester United youngster, 20, made a goalscoring debut in last weekend's 3-0 win over Southend in the FA Cup first round. He will continue up front and could be partnered by Mark McCammon, while Stimson will check on the fitness of forward Andy Barcham after he felt his groin against Southend. Gills skipper Barry Fuller will also be absent as he serves a one-match suspension for collecting five bookings. Chris Palmer, Jack Payne and Stuart Lewis are competing for Fuller's right-back berth.
