Team News:

Callum Reilly (groin), Josh Parker (int.duty) and Dean Parrett are all available for selection ahead of Saturday’s game at Priestfield.

Manager Steve Lovell hinted that a couple of changes could be made to the team following Wednesday’s extra-time victory over Hartlepool in the FA Cup.

As for Luton, Danny Hylton returns following a four-match ban.

Winger Luke Berry continues to miss out with a knee injury, but other than that boss Nathan Jones has a fully fit squad to choose from.

Manager Comments:

Steve Lovell - “It will be interesting and it will be open. We have scored quite a few goals ourselves this season and it should be a good game. I don’t think it will be 0-0."

Nathan Jones - "All I can do is prepare my team. We're in good form and we want to continue that form. If inadvertently at 4.55pm on Saturday and Gillingham have been tired and we've benefited from that, then all well and good, but I am not preparing for them to be tired."
