Shaun Derry has an unchanged squad and plenty of options available to him for the Magpies' fixture at home to the Gills.

The Magpies manager will still be without the suspended Marcus Haber and injured pair Mustapha Dumbaya and Joss Labadie, but they are his only absentees from a pool of around 28 players from which to choose from.

Callum Ball could make his full debut after having to settle for a place on the bench against Brentford last weekend, with the on-loan Derby striker arriving too late to be involved in Derry's plans from the start. Likewise, on-loan Charlton midfielder Bradley Jordan will hope to be involved in the matchday squad this Saturday.

The likes of Enoch Showunmi, David Bell, Ronan Murray, Mark Fotheringham, Greg Tempest and Haydn Hollis are also options for Derry.

Amine Linganzi could be involved for Gillingham as they target victory at bottom club Notts County.

The French midfielder has not featured since the start of November due to a calf injury but returned to training on Monday and it remains to be seen whether he is deemed fit enough for inclusion in Peter Taylor's matchday 18.

Steven Gregory and Craig Fagan are both expected to miss out again due to injury, while John Mousinho (hamstring) and Elliott Hewitt (ankle) have both returned to parent clubs Preston and Ipswich respectively having seen their loan stays cut short.

Gills midfielder Charlie Allen has this week been recalled from his loan spell at non-league Tamworth and will be hoping to feature.
