Tuesday November 24

Kick-Off, 6pm

Team News:

Tom O’Connor (hamstring) will remain out of the matchday squad after picking up a knock on international duty. Steve Evans confirmed he is likely to miss another couple of games because of it.

Apart from that the Gills have no fresh injury concerns. Jacob Mellis and Stuart O'Keefe are recovering well from their respective issues.

New AFC Wimbledon signing, Ben Heneghan, will likely feature in the matchday squad having come on as a substitute against Rochdale. Ethan Chislett will be hopeful of starting Tuesday’s game having scored the stoppage time winner against Rochdale.

Former defender Luke O’Neill continues to recover from an ankle injury he suffered in October and will miss the game. Brentford loanee Jaako Oksanen has returned to his parent club to continue his recovery from an ankle injury.

 

Manager Comments:

Steve Evans - “The same level of performance is the requirement and this time taking our chances will be needed.

“We will look at all the lads in training, the opposition match reports in detail, and pick a team to win the match.

“Every match in any league is tough and Tuesday will be no different so we will again need to be at our best.”

Glyn Hodges - "We’ve left a few points at home but we’ve been pleased with our away form.

“We started the season well and after having quite a long break since our last game – two weeks – we were glad to come back with a win."
