Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler once again has doubts over two key players for the visit of Southend.

Left-back Andy Nutter and winger Dennis Oli missed the win against Burton at the weekend with groin and hamstring problems respectively and both are doubtful.

The pair will be monitored ahead of Tuesday's game but will not be risked if not 100% fit. Chris Palmer will continue at left-back.

New signing Bruce Inkango was on the bench against Burton and may be thrusted into the starting line-up to give the Gills more width.

Tony Sinclair returned to the bench after a back injury and could make his way back into the defence, while goalkeeper Alan Julian will have to settle with a place on the bench as Lance Cronin continues between the sticks.

Southend new signing Nathaniel Jarvis is pushing for a start.

Jarvis signed on loan from Cardiff last week and will be hoping to make his full debut after coming on as a late substitute in the win over Hereford at the weekend.

However, strikers Barry Corr and Blair Sturrock both scored at the weekend and are likely to keep their places.

Captain, Craig Easton is out for at least another fortnight while Mark Phillips and Sofiene Zaaboub have returned to training this week but Tuesday's game is likely to come too soon for the pair.

Matt Patterson and Scott Spencer will not be considered for the trip to the Priestfield Stadium as manager Paul Sturrock is looking to send them out on loan.
