Gillingham are without injured pair Danny Kedwell and Michael Harriman.

 

VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: “Peter Taylor was at the game on Tuesday and I’m not sure what he would have made of the performance to be honest! He’s very experienced and has settled them down and I’m not surprised to see them doing well. It’s going to be another tough game for us.”

 

Peter Taylor (Gillingham manager): “We have to get back to winning ways and I'm sure the players feel the same way. Crawley are probably fresher than a lot of sides at the moment  because they haven't played too many games but know what we have to do."
