Table-toppers Gillingham expect Romain Vincelot to be available for the visit of Fleetwood.
The midfielder has recovered from a head injury suffered following a collision with Rotherham's Jason Taylor during last weekend's 2-1 victory that saw him stretchered from the field after lengthy on-pitch treatment.
The Brighton loanee has trained as normal this week and is expected to keep his place in midfield, though he will be assessed ahead of kick-off as a precaution.
Chris Whelpdale is a doubt due to a groin strain and will face a fitness test ahead of the game, but Connor Essam is expected to be available after recovering from a thigh injury and should return to the bench.
Tom Flanagan is sidelined until the new year with a fractured metatarsal, by which time his loan deal from MK Dons will have ended.
Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander could welcome back defender Steve McNulty.
A calf injury kept the 29-year-old out of last weekend's goalless draw with Southend, but he could come back into contention after featuring in a reserve game in midweek.
Striker Jon Parkin (hamstring) remains a doubt, while midfielder Barry Ferguson (groin) faces a late fitness test after leaving the pitch during Saturday's game due to a knock.
Alexander told the club's official website: ``It's a massive test but one that I'm really looking forward to.
``Gillingham are a fit team with a very experienced manager and are flying high. You have to test yourself against the best and we must be competitive to take them on.
``We need to have the right mentality and the lads must give all they've got. That's the base minimum that I will require from them.''
