Gillingham loan midfielder Callum Slattery will be out for a month with ankle ligament damage.
Slattery has impressed since joining on loan from Southampton but was carried off injured just before the half time break on Saturday.
The 22-year-old has made seven league starts since joining Gillingham in January.
X-ray scans showed there were no breaks but he still faces several weeks on the sidelines, as confirmed by Gills boss Steve Evans on Tuesday, saying: “He will be three or four weeks. He has got a couple of ligaments in his ankle that are bruised. He will probably be mid to end of March.”
Assistant boss Paul Raynor said: “He has been excellent for us and has slotted in magnificently well.”
Evans was also asked about Jordan Graham, after he started on the bench against Wimbledon on Tuesday. He came on after the break.
The manager said: “Jordan didn’t feel well but he wasn’t great Saturday as well so there was a couple of reasons he didn’t play.”
