Gillingham are continuing to assess the severity of the injury to striker Cody McDonald.
He suffered a knee and ankle injury at MK Dons last week and looks almost certain to miss Saturday's game at home to Yeovil.
Keeper Stuart Nelson (hand), Jermaine McGlashan (hamstring) and Amine Linganzi (hamstring) are also set to sit it out.
Gills boss Peter Taylor said: “McGlashan has a bit of a hamstring as well. That’s a little bit of a blow. I thought in the first half on Saturday he was outstanding.”
Linganzi has a hamstring-related problem and the club are keeping him sidelined for a couple of weeks to help him overcome the injury.
On McDonald’s injury, Taylor said: “His knee swelling has gone down a little bit but his ankle is still very swollen.
“When things like that happen it gives another player an opportunity and it’s up to them to grab it.
“If it means Antonio German or Brennan Dickenson having a chance up front then they have to take it."
