Aldershot are not expected to have any new injury or suspension concerns.

Newly-appointed boss Andy Scott watched his side pick up a point from a goalless draw at Chesterfield in midweek, extending his unbeaten start in the Shots hot seat to two matches following last weekend's victory over Fleetwood.

Midfielder Danny Rose and left-back Anthony Tonkin both came back into contention and duly forced their way into Scott's XI, along with striker Craig Reid.

Asa Hall, Adam Mekki and Aaron Morris dropped to the bench and all three will be pushing for recalls against the Gills.

Scott will also assess Lionel Ainsworth, Troy Brown and Jeff Goulding to see whether any of the trio are fit enough.

League Two leaders Gillingham hope to boast a fully-fit squad for their trip.

Gills assistant boss John Schofield admits a few unnamed players are nursing bumps and bruises following Tuesday's disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Oxford but he is hopeful of having everyone available.

Forward Myles Weston was forced off due to a foot injury in the first half while right-back Matt Fish (ankle) and midfielders Charlie Allen (wrist) and Andy Frampton (concussion) missed the game altogether.

Danny Kedwell made his return as a second-half substitute against the U's following his hamstring problems.

Gillingham, who boast a two-point lead at the top of the table, have taken 16 points from the last 18 on offer away from Priestfield.
