Josh Pritchard has yet to make his Gillingham debut but fellow new signing Aaron Morris could feature against Ipswich Picture: Barry Goodwin

Aaron Morris could feature for Gillingham this weekend - but Josh Pritchard may have to keep waiting.

Neither have played for Gills after sitting out the club’s opening four pre-season matches with knocks, but Morris is pushing for a place in the team for Saturday's match against Championship side Ipswich Town.

“I think he might have 45 minutes,” said Gills boss Peter Taylor. “It is just a bit of swelling, that’s all.

“Josh started running on Monday and that’s good news. I don’t think he will be involved on Saturday.

“Aaron Morris just got a bit of swelling before the Folkestone game but he had done all of the pre-season. He has done a lot of work, whereas Pritchard hasn’t and so he has a bit of catching up to do.”

Taylor could be making his mind up on whether to keep hold of trialist winger Josh Stanford after this weekend.

“I am sure by the end of the week I will make a decision on him,” said Taylor. 

"He has been fine and seems to understand what we are trying to do and his position."
