Gillingham will welcome back midfielder Ben Pringle for Saturday’s Sky Bet League One match against Lincoln at Priestfield.
The 31-year-old was left out of the squad for the midweek match against Tottenham’s Under-21s after becoming a father for the first time.
Gills assistant boss Paul Raynor says former Manchester United midfielder Matty Willock, who has played just one half a game of competitive football since joining the club, is not quite ready for his return from injury.
Lincoln manager Michael Appleton will bring 18-year-old midfielder Ellis Chapman into the starting line-up on Saturday after impressing in training.
Chapman will help fill the void created by the absence of Joe Morell on Wales duty and, according to Appleton, has a chance to stake a claim for a regular run in the side.
Appleton could also play Tom Pett, Lee Frecklington and Ben Coker, who all made their first starts of the season in the 3-0 victory over Rotherham on Tuesday night, with Coker making his Imps debut and his first competitive appearance in more than 12 months.
