Gills boss Peter Taylor admitted that few of the players who started at the weekend deserve a place in the team to face MK Dons on Tuesday.
A 3-1 defeat to Crewe at Priestfield left the Gills a point nearer the drop zone and manager Taylor disappointed.
Taylor said: “I haven’t got to make changes but unfortunately there are a lot of players who started on Saturday who probably don’t deserve to play Tuesday.
“The players have been told that it wasn’t a satisfactory performance. They know that and I am sure they didn’t need to hear that from me.”
Taylor could choose to bring midfielder Connor Smith in for the match. The on-loan Watford midfielder was left out of the squad at the weekend.
Crystal Palace defender Ryan Inniss is also hoping to make a return, having overcome an injury which has kept him sidelined since making his debut against Sheffield United over a month ago.
He was close to being involved at the weekend but Taylor opted not to risk him.
The Gills boss said: “He has trained but I didn’t want to put him on the bench because of the hamstring injury.”
Danny Kedwell (knee) and Chris Whelpdale (ankle) remain out injured.
