Three Gillingham players will find out before the weekend how much longer they will be sidelined through injury.
Midfielder Bradley Dack (pictured) has had his foot in an air-boot this week to take the pressure off an injury he picked up in last weekend’s FA Cup match against Scunthorpe.
Ankle ligament damage has been ruled out but he may have damaged a metatarsal bone.
"If he is still in the same pain then we will probably have to go for a scan just to check," said boss Martin Allen.
"We don’t really like them going for scans because they cost £400. Mr Scally (the chairman) doesn’t like that."
Meanwhile, Joe Martin and Charlie Allen were due to see a consultant yesterday (Thursday) to assess the recovery of their broken hands.
"Hopefully they can join in next week if scans show the bone has fused in their injuries to get them back going again," said Allen.
