Nutter in fitness race

22 September 2010 02:30
Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler has been dealt a blow as left-back John Nutter is doubtful for the game against Burton with a groin injury. The Gills' injury problems appeared to be easing over recent weeks so Nutter's injury is disappointing for Hessenthaler. He told the club's official website: "It looks like Johnny is going to be missing. He pulled his groin in training and will be doubtful for the game. "I think we're looking at 10 games with John. There is a chance he could be fit because he says he feels a little bit better. But I think it's a risky one." Meanwhile, defensive partner Tony Sinclair is set to return to the Gills squad after recovering from a trapped nerve.
