Mills and boom for Crawley
Crawley club captain Pablo Mills could return to the side for the visit of Gillingham.
Mills has struggled for a place in the starting line-up due to the form of Kyle McFadzean and Claude Davis in the centre of defence.
However, Davis limped out of last weekend's 1-1 draw with Crewe to be replaced by Mills and he could keep his place in the side if the 32-year-old is not fit.
Red Devils boss Steve Evans will also be forced to make one other change to his starting line-up after midfielder Andy Drury returned to Ipswich following the end of his loan spell.
Crawley go into the match four points clear at the top of npower League Two and are on a 14-match unbeaten league run.
Gillingham have doubts over captain Andy Frampton and midfielder Curtis Weston, while Charlie Lee starts a two-match ban.
Defender Frampton was forced off in the first half of last weekend's 4-1 victory over Bristol Rovers nursing an ankle injury and is still struggling, while Weston has picked up a thigh problem this week.
Right-back Lee, meanwhile, collected his 10th booking of the season against the Pirates and now serves a suspension which sees him miss out against Crawley and Dagenham.
Matt Lawrence and Matt Fish are ready to step in for Frampton and Lee in defence, while Chris Whelpdale could be in line to replace Weston should he not make it.
On-loan striker Jo Kuffour is available again having been ineligible to face parent club Bristol Rovers under the terms of his agreement, but fellow loan forward Frank Nouble has returned to West Ham having seen his stay at Priestfield come to an end last Saturday.
Danny Spiller (ankle), Barry Fuller and Adam Birchall (both knee) continue to make progress with their respective recoveries.
Kuffour downs table toppers
Ten-man Crawley suffered their first defeat in 16 league and cup games as two second-half goals from striker Jo Kuffour gave Gillingham a come-from-behind 2-1 victory.
Gillingham also finished with 10 men after Luke Rooney received his second booking in stoppage time.
Crawley were a man down after 18 minutes when centre half Claude Davis was shown a straight red card for bringing down Kuffour on the edge of the area and Danny Jackman put the resulting free-kick just wide.
But he npower League Two leaders broke the deadlock 11 minutes before the break when a clumsy tackle by Matt Lawrence flattened Kyle McFadzean in the area and striker Matt Tubbs stepped up to blast home the resulting penalty.
Tubbs was denied shortly before the break by Gills goalkeeper Ross Flitney who tipped his 20-yard free-kick over the bar.
Kuffour struck twice inside two minutes at the start of the second half to turn the match in Gillingham's favour.
First he ghosted in at the far post to fire in a cross by Chris Whelpdale in the 50th minute before beating three defenders to hit the winner with a superbly taken individual goal.
There was late drama when Lawrence hacked a Tubbs effort off the line to deny Crawley an equaliser.
