The imminent return from injury of youngster Bradley Dack is one that excites Gillingham boss Martin Allen.
Dack (pictured) was a regular first team member for the Gills before limping off injured in the FA Cup game against Scunthorpe at the start of November.
There were initial fears that he had suffered ankle ligament damage but that was soon ruled out and the attacking midfielder – a goalscoring sensation for the youth team – made a comeback for the Gillingham development squad on Tuesday night.
"Whenever Brad plays, he makes things happen," said Allen.
"Brad is a good player, a powerful player, a great athlete and still only 18. He is one for the future.
"He may not always be technically gifted in the centre of midfield but when it comes to the final third, Brad makes things happen, like he did here (at Priestfield) against Southend when we won 1-0. He was the one who got brought down for the penalty."
Dack has made nine appearances for the Gills and signed a three-year deal with the club in September.
