Jack Payne is a doubt for Gillingham's trip to Aldershot.
The midfielder was working his way back to fitness after recovering from a broken foot but damaged his ankle in training earlier in the week and is now unlikely to feature.
Gills boss Andy Hessenthaler will definitely be without Tony Sinclair as the defender faces six weeks on the sidelines after it was discovered during a precautionary scan that he had a broken foot.
Forward duo Dennis Oli (hamstring) and Adebayo Akinfenwa (groin) may shake off their respective injuries to play a part at the Recreation Ground.
Gills will be confident going into the clash having won three consecutive games - all on the road - which has seen them move away from the relegation zone in npower League Two.
