Peter Taylor is aiming to extend the loan of Charlton Athletic striker Joe Pigott.
The young front-man ends his current spell at Priestfield this weekend when Gillingham travel to Bristol City.
Gills boss Taylor is hoping to make contact with Addicks boss Chris Powell on Wednesday to keep hold of the 20-year-old for a little longer.
Taylor said: “I want him to stay for another month at least, if we can, and I think Joe is very keen on that as well.
“I am hopefully going to speak to the Charlton manager about that.
“If it means they want him back for another month then there is nothing we can do but hopefully we can have him for another month.”
Pigott has played three games for the Gills so far and netted in the 2-1 win at Carlisle on February 8.
The Gills, meanwhile, face Luton Town on Wednesday in a development game. Striker Danny Kedwell is expected to feature after recovering from a hernia operation.
