Gillingham's leading scorer Simeon Jackson is in line for a recall for the clash with Yeovil at Priestfield.

The Canada international was left on the bench for the 2-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers after returning from international duty; a decision which some fans questioned vocally during the match.

After the game Gills boss Mark Stimson defended his decision, telling the club's official website: "Jacko didn't train with us, he only arrived back on Thursday and we didn't train (on Friday) because of the weather so it would have been hard to put him straight back in."

Gillingham have no fresh injury concerns after the weekend, with the only confirmed absentees being long-term injury victims Danny Jackman (shoulder) and Simon King (ankle ligaments).

Yeovil are boosted by the return to fitness of central defender Terrell Forbes.

Forbes missed the 1-0 win over Southend through illness but was fit enough to be introduced as a 69th-minute substitute for Scott Murray as the Glovers drew 1-1 at home to Charlton on Saturday.

Striker Dean Bowditch (shoulder) made another appearances from the bench as he continues to gain more match-time following his winning goal against Southend.

As anticipated, on-loan Swansea and Wales Under-21 midfielder Shaun MacDonald returned to the starting XI after recovering from a thigh injury.
