Hess waiting on duo
Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler has two injury concerns for the visit of Morecambe.
Midfielder Curtis Weston picked up a knock early in the second half of last Saturday's 4-0 romp at Lincoln and he will be assessed before kick-off.
If he does not make it, Jack Payne, who replaced him at Sincil Bank, could be in line for a start.
Hessenthaler also has a worry over Stefan Payne after the striker sustained an injury in a midweek friendly against Canterbury City.
There are no other injury or suspension problems for the Gills as they aim to consolidate their play-off position, where they currently occupy seventh position, having gone 15 games without defeat.
Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy will again be without a trio of players.
Paul Scott (knee), Paul Mullin (back) and Kieran Charnock (Achilles) are all sidelined as the Shrimps seek to build on last weekend`s 2-1 home win over Burton.
McIlroy has no other injury or suspension concerns but Danny Carlton may have earned himself a starting role after he came off the bench to hit the winner last weekend.
Carlton replaced James Spencer on the hour and found the net seven minutes later in an impressive cameo which earned him a ringing endorsement from his boss.
McIlroy said: "It was a great finish from Danny Carlton. He had a couple more chances as well and could have scored a hat-trick."
Last-gasp McDonald rescues Gills
Cody McDonald snatched a last-minute equaliser against Morecambe to extend promotion-chasing Gillingham's unbeaten run to 16 games with a 1-1 draw.
Morecambe took a shock lead through Phil Jevons' controversial first-half penalty but despite piling on the pressure Gillingham had to wait until the dying stages for McDonald to pounce with his 24th goal of the season.
Despite their early dominance, Gillingham fell behind on 20 minutes when Matt Lawrence was adjudged to have handled in the area when jostling for possession with Jevons.
Lawrence was booked for his protests to referee Danny McDermid and Jevons kept his nerve to send Alan Julian the wrong way from the spot.
The Gills responded by turning up the heat but found goalkeeper Barry Roche in inspired form as he kept out efforts from Barry Fuller, Kevin Maher and Adebayo Akinfenwa.
After the break it was more of the same as McDonald went desperately close with an overhead kick before Danny Spiller wasted a glorious chance from ten yards out.
Just when it seemed as if Gillingham's play-off hopes would take a major dent, Nutter's cross found McDonald at the back post and he headed home.
