Last Updated: 23/08/18 6:15pm
Gillingham host Sky Bet League One rivals Coventry on Saturday and are likely to still be without the services of Dean Parrett.
The midfielder is struggling with a hamstring problem and has missed the last three games, including Wednesday's 4-1 defeat to Sunderland.
Manager Steve Lovell could recall Elliott List to the starting line-up after he came off the bench against the Black Cats following a shoulder injury. Josh Rees (ankle) is also expected to miss out as the Gills look to get back to winning ways.
Coventry travel to Priestfield having also tasted defeat last time out.A 2-0 defeat away at Blackpool is likely to see manager Mark Robins make changes this weekend.
Jodi Jones is still waiting to make his comeback after returning to training following a cruciate ligament injury. The 20-year-old has not played since November but could be involved sooner rather than later.
