Midfielder Chris Whelpdale limped out of Gillingham’s clash at Oldham, just a week after recovering from his previous injury.

Whelpdale had returned to the team for the midweek clash against Sheffield United after missing seven games through injury.

He had previously picked up a knock in the game against Walsall on December 29.

Whelpdale had been a regular starter in Peter Taylor’s Gillingham side before the injury problems arose and the manager is keen to find out what’s going on.

Taylor said: “We have to look at that and I’ve told the physio we have to get to the bottom of it.

“It seems that every time he lands wrong, it’s a problem. We have to get to the bottom of it.”

The Gills will also be keeping a careful eye on Michael Harriman who missed Saturday’s game with a hamstring injury.

Taylor said: “We did a light session on Friday morning and he felt his hamstring and it was too much of a risk. He has felt it before and we were just hoping it would be a cramp thing but we couldn’t take that chance and he didn’t travel.”
