Defender Leon Legge is likely to remain sidelined again as the Gills head for a midweek clash at Peterborough.
The central defender was absent at the weekend as Peter Taylor’s side conceded four goals at home to Rotherham.
With Callum Davies out on loan at Dover, it gives Gills boss Taylor few options if he wants to switch things around at the back.
Taylor said: “Leon Legge picked up a hamstring injury on Tuesday afternoon and we had a bit of a nightmare week in that respect and so Ryan (Inniss) had to come in and play.
“Ryan hadn’t played many matches recently, so we would have started with Legge but Ryan came in and did a good job for us.”
Whatever side Taylor picks, he’ll be hoping they put in a better defensive performance on Tuesday night.
Taylor said: “We have to bounce back, it’s as simple as that. We’ve shown good character before and that’s what we have to do.
“It’s another big test. We knew the next three matches were big tests. Saturday showed that’s the case but Tuesday is another day.”
Taylor’s team picked up an unexpected win last time they were on the road, beating MK Dons and the Gills boss insists they won’t be defending all night at Peterborough.
He said: “It won’t be a case of playing 4-5-1 and sitting back.”
