Oli back in the frame for Gills
Published : 21 Aug 2009 11:26:09
Oli suffered a knee injury in the friendly draw with RUFC Calais in late July but is now back in full training and manager Mark Stimson revealed he will play some part as the Gills look to get back to winning ways. Stimson's side won their opening two games of the season against Swindon and Plymouth but return to Priestfield this weekend on the back of away defeats to Tranmere and Colchester. The Gills boss is keen to keep a settled side so is likely to resist making changes, although winger Chris Palmer and goalkeeper Simon Royce are both pushing for starting spots. Defender Josh Gowling is available for the final time before his loan spell from Carlisle expires, although Stimson is hoping to agree a permanent deal for the 25-year-old. Midfielder Stuart Lewis and key centre-back Simon King are both still sidelined with ruptured ankle ligaments.
