Dagenham & Redbridge forward Sam Williams could start his first game since last October.
The striker, who sustained a serious knee injury 10 months ago, has been a second-half substitute in each of the Daggers’ three matches to date this term, replacing Brian Woodall on each occasion.
And Williams may well start ahead of Woodall against the Gills as manager John Still looks for something different in attack with his side still looking for their first win of the campaign.
Matt Saunders (ankle) has resumed training and is now stepping up his involvement with a view to returning to first-team contention in the near future.
Fellow midfielder Kevin Maher has now had the pin taken out of his foot and should also return to training next week before increasing his fitness programme.
Gillingham will be without Tom Flanagan.
The defender saw red for a second bookable offence in Tuesday night’s impressive 1-0 victory at Wycombe and now serves a one-match suspension.
Otherwise, manager Martin Allen has a full-strength squad at his disposal as the Gills aim to continue their 100 percent start to the season in all competitions.
Allen made five changes in midweek from the side who saw off Bradford last weekend, rotating his ranks to cope with the demands of the early season schedule.
And it remains to be seen how he will send out his side at Victoria Road as they aim for a fourth successive win, which was last achieved in March.
