Gillingham boss Steve Lovell is considering changes for the visit of Bristol Rovers.
Lovell felt several of his players were looking fatigued in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Oxford.
Consistency in selection has been key for the Gills during their recent upturn in form, but Lovell has faith in his squad ahead of the game at Priestfield on Tuesday night.
“I will have to have a look at it,” said Lovell. “Everyone wants to play, nobody wants to miss a game and we will see how we go.
“We still have 10 games to go and we have to balance it out. But we have to get a win on Tuesday and that’s what we’ll be trying to do.
“We have a squad and whatever team I put out should be good enough to get a result.
“We have a fit squad now and it is important that we have got everyone fit and raring to go so we can pick from 20-21 who will put in a shift.
“There looked to be a couple of tired people out there, perhaps the younger ones.”
The Gills moved up to 13th after their weekend win, four points off the drop zone, but Lovell knows his team still have work to do. Passing the 50-point mark will be key.
He said: “You look at the table and it gives the boys a lift but it’s still the points that you are more concerned about.
“The more points you get, the higher up the league you go. Now that makes Tuesday’s game against Bristol Rovers all the better to win again. We want to finish as high as we can.”
Rovers climbed out the bottom four with a 1-0 win at Scunthorpe on Saturday.
Defender Alex Lacey is close to a return for the Gills, having missed the last nine games. Ricky Holmes is another week away from being involved.
