Max Ehmer and Barry Fuller are back in training but face a battle to reclaim a starting role.
Gills boss Steve Lovell is unlikely to make any changes for this weekend’s trip to Burton in League 1 following the FA Cup win over Cardiff last Saturday.
Lovell knows the pair will understand.
He said: “They have missed a few games and they would expect nothing different. They wouldn’t like it if they had gone in and played well and then were left out because other boys are coming back. That wouldn’t be right.
“I always believe that if people go in there and do a good job then the people who are out of the side have to wait.
“Max and Barry have had a brilliant season and I have no doubt they will be back in the team at some stage, but at the moment I can’t change the personnel in the team.
“That team out there (which beat Cardiff) deserves to go and play again on Saturday, unless someone pulls out or it needs to change.
“We have looked at Burton and we know what we might do. There is a possibility we might change our formation on Saturday.”
Regan Charles-Cook is pushing hard for a return to the side following injury, but midfield pair Billy Bingham and Dean Parrett look set to be sidelined for another couple of weeks.
