There was good and bad news on the injury front for the Gills before the weekend.
Broken hand victims Charlie Allen and Joe Martin (pictured) went to see a specialist on Thursday but the reports were hit and miss.
Martin has been told he needs another month on the sidelines, but Allen could be back in action for the development squad tomorrow (Tuesday), after getting the green light to up his training.
Boss Martin Allen said: "Charlie has got to have three days of training before he can join back in with the first team, on Tuesday.
"It is bad news unfortunately with Joe Martin. He has got to rest for a month where he can have no contact. The bone in his hand hasn’t fused and so until that starts to repair he can’t do anything. It is very frustrating."
Charlie Allen (pictured left) will train again today (Monday) and the management will then decide whether to let him play in a development game at the training ground on Tuesday.
Bradley Dack, meanwhile, has no breaks or ligament damage in his foot but may still face several weeks on the sidelines.
Allen said: "It’s just bone bruising and that’s going to take time, we don’t know how long that’s going to take."
