Ahead of the fixture away at Gillingham on Saturday, head of sports science and medicine Rodger Wylde gave an injury update.

Striker Eoin Doyle has picked up a minor hamstring injury, which has put his participation in the match down in Kent in doubt.

With two games in quick succession in the days after Christmas, caution will be given to the 19-goal striker with a view to keeping him fit over the festive period.

Midfielder Dan Gardner picked up a medial ligament injury in the latter stages of the match with Bradford City and is expected to be sidelined for two weeks.

The injury is only a minor grade one tear in the 24 year-old's right knee ligament, but needs to be managed carefully to ensure it heels correctly.

In longer term injury news, Drew Talbot is doing well in his recovery from a serious groin injury. 

The right back had a setback three weeks ago when he felt a sudden pain, but has since been given the go-ahead to start his late stage injury recovery and is pencilled in to rejoin full training two weeks on Monday.

Goalkeeper Aaron Chapman is also in the next stage of his recovery from an ankle ligament injury.

Four weeks after his operation, Chapman had his cast removed from his lower leg yesterday and Wylde says the 24 year-old now requires 10-14 days of movement rehabilitation to removed stiffness in the area and prevent further injury.

The goalkeeper is expected to back in training around eight weeks after having his cast removed.
