Boss Peter Taylor hopes three of his new signings will overcome niggles to feature for the Gills at Bromley on Tuesday.
Goalkeeper Glenn Morris and midfield pair Aaron Morris and Josh Pritchard picked up knocks which meant they were unable to play any part in the 3-1 win at Folkestone on Friday.
Taylor insists the injuries are only minor and he won’t risk anyone unnecessarily.
He said: “The players that weren’t at Folkestone had a few little niggles. When there are doubts whether they have slight tears or whatever, we don’t want to take the chance and we are confident they are all okay."
Joe Martin and Amine Linganzi were also left out because of minor injuries.
Taylor gave his squad “a deserved weekend off,” following an intense week of training and his side step up their pre-season programme at Hayes Lane.
A familiar strike-pairing are likely to face the Gills, with former players Adam Birchall and Harry Grant in the Lillywhites’ line-up. Kick-off is at 7.30pm.
Gillingham’s development team, meanwhile, will be taking on Southern Counties East side Rochester United on Tuesday at Rede Court Road from 7.45pm.
