Gills suffer Nutter blow

Published Add your comment

Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler has been dealt a blow as left-back John Nutter is doubtful for the game against Burton with a groin injury.

The Gills' injury problems appeared to be easing over recent weeks so Nutter's injury is disappointing for Hessenthaler.

He told the club's official website: "It looks like Johnny is going to be missing. He pulled his groin in training and will be doubtful for the game."

The manager added: "I think we're looking at 10 games with John. There is a chance he could be fit because he says he feels a little bit better. But I think it's a risky one."

Meanwhile, defensive partner Tony Sinclair is set to return to the Gills squad after recovering from a trapped nerve.
