Martin Allen has a fully-fit squad at his disposal as the Gills aim to secure their second successive win at home to MK Dons.

The Gills boss, who saw his side record their first victory of the campaign at Crewe last Saturday, decided to take midfielders Charlie Lee, Steven Gregory and Chris Whelpdale off the transfer list this week, with the trio set to keep their starting places.

However, striker Antonio German failed to make the squad against the Alex and is still available for transfer.

Leon Legge lost his place in defence at Gresty Road and Callum Davies is set to continue after helping the Kent outfit secure their first clean sheet of the campaign.

Antony Kay faces a lengthy absence so Tom Flanagan will make his first start since May 2012 when MK Dons travel to Gillingham.

Kay will be out for around three months after undergoing hip surgery this week so rather than sign cover, boss Karl Robinson will give 21-year-old Flanagan his chance to impress against the side he helped to win the League Two title last season during a loan spell.

Dele Alli is a doubt after he was forced off with an ankle injury during the 4-1 win over Stevenage. If the highly-rated teenager does not make it then Samir Carruthers is set to deputise having returned to training following a neck problem.

Danny Green is expected to keep his place on the right wing for what will be his final game for the Dons before he returns to parent club Charlton.

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
