Sky Bet League One
Saturday October 10
Deji Oshilaja (knee), Ryan Jackson (groin) and Doug Loft (Achilles) are all set to miss the weekend’s game.
Jackson and Loft are close to returning but this game may have come too soon for them.
As for Chesterfield striker Lee Novak (thigh) is rated as 50/50 while Ian Evatt should be fit to play despite breaking his hand.
Defender Jack Fitzwater has returned to parent club West Brom after making one appearance while on loan, but Sam Morsy is set to return following suspension.
Steve Lovell - “Last year it was probably our worst performance of the season so we will be looking to put that right.
“We will work on it for the remainder of the week and go there with a plan to get another result.”
Dean Saunders - “They’re a good team with a good young manager who’s learned the hard way and we’re going to have a tough game.
“They’re scoring goals, they’re well organised but we have a plan for them."
Chesterfield did the double over Gillingham last season, then under the management of Paul Cook.
In total the two clubs have met on 66 occasions – of those the Gills have won 29, Chesterfield have 22 victories and the remaining 15 matches have been a draw.
