Steve Evans will be forced into one change for Tuesday's game with Stuart O'Keefe suspended.
Gillingham v Cheltenham Town
Sky Bet League One
MEMS Priestfield Stadium
Tuesday November 23rd
Robbie McKenzie is a doubt after coming off against Crewe with a knock to his foot. Mustapha Carayol could start, having come on as a substitute in the game.
Stuart O'Keefe will be forced to miss out due to suspension; he will be eligble for selection against Portsmouth at the weekend. The fixture is likely to come too soon for Olly Lee, Danny Lloyd and David Tutonda.
Cheltenham could have Callum Wright on the bench as he nears full match fitness. Taylor Perry and Will Boyle will miss the game through injury.
Matty Blair is a doubt after suffering a knock to his calf in Cheltenham’s win over Shrewsbury.
Steve Evans - "As a manager I have never experienced an injury pandemic like this, 10 senior players missing and none short term. It really is hammering us, but we will get organised and fight against what I regards as very decent opponents."
Michael Duff - “We don't need to do that much work on Gillingham because we've done so much on them before. It's our third game out of four against the same opponent. It's similar for them with us.”
Gills were beaten by Crewe at the weekend as goals by Chris Long and Tom Lowery condemned Steve Evans’ side to a 2-0 defeat. It leaves Gills 20th in the League One table with 17 points.
Cheltenham Town- WWDDD
The Robins climbed into the top half after defeating Shrewsbury Town at the weekend. Daniel Udoh gave the Shrews the lead, but a red card for Elliott Bennett turned the game on its head. He handled the ball on the goal line, and Conor Thomas scored the resulting penalty. Kyle Joseph put Michael Duff’s men in front midway through the second half, and they hung on for all three points.
The win put Cheltenham into 11th place with 23 points after 17 league games.
The two sides last met at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium last week in our Emirates FA Cup first round replay.
Mattie Pollock's 11th minute goal proved to be enough to put Cheltenham through to the second round of the competition, where they will play AFC Wimbledon away.
In total the teams have met on 15 occasions; Gillingham have won five of those meetings.
The game is available for purchase on iFollow for a one-off fee of £10. Gills fans will have live commentary from BBC Radio Kent as part of the price. Graphics and match replays will also be available.
