Gillingham V AFC Wimbledon at MEMS Priestfield Stadium : Match Preview

28 December 2017
Gills wait on Scott Wagstaff

Gillingham will assess Scott Wagstaff ahead of the visit of Sky Bet League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon.

Midfielder Wagstaff missed the draw against Oxford on Boxing Day as he recovered from a hamstring injury.

Striker Conor Wilkinson staked his claim for a starting place after coming off the bench to net a late equaliser.

Defender Bradley Garmston could be recalled after not being included in the past two matchday squads but Billy Bingham remains sidelined as the midfielder continues his rehabilitation from a broken ankle.

Harry Forrester and Kwesi Appiah remain doubts for AFC Wimbledon.

Forrester was left out of Neal Ardley's side for the loss to Portsmouth because of a thigh strain sustained in training on Christmas Eve.

Ardley continues to assess the fitness of Appiah, who is close to returning following a hamstring injury.

He will be given as much time as possible to prove he is fit enough to feature against the Gills.
