Gillingham have received mixed selection news ahead of their home clash as they aim for the victory which could secure automatic promotion to League One.

Anton Robinson was forced off towards the latter stages of Monday's 1-0 win over Rotherham carrying a knock and has not fully recovered, meaning he will miss out against the Gulls.

But fellow midfielder Andy Frampton returns from his three-match suspension following the red card received at Rochdale, while Charlie Lee has also recovered after illness.

Meanwhile, Bradley Dack (ankle) faces a fitness test on Friday having missed the last three matches.

League leaders Gills go into the clash knowing victory, or potentially even a draw, will guarantee a top-three finish depending on results elsewhere.

Torquay will be without influential midfielder Joss Labadie.

The on-loan Notts County midfielder has returned to Meadow Lane after four goals in his seven games for the struggling Gulls.

His place in the side could be taken by Welshman Nathan Craig or Damon Lathrope while Ian Morris is fit again after recovering from a ruptured Achilles.

Goalkeeper Michael Poke, 27, is resting up as he awaits the results of scans on an illness that forced him out of the 3-1 home defeat to Bradford on Monday.

The player has made two trips to hospital for MRI and ultrasound scans after complaining of symptoms hinting at a chest infection.

If Poke fails to return, Martin Rice will make just his fifth Football League appearance.

Meanwhile, the club's two other injured players, winger Danny Stevens (groin) and midfielder Craig Easton (calf), hope to return to training ahead of the clash.

Torquay make the trip just one point above the relegation zone.
