Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler should have an almost fully-fit squad to choose from when his side host Chesterfield.

Hessenthaler revealed a number of players, thought to include Danny Spiller and Danny Jackman, suffered from bumps, knocks and bruises following the weekend's draw with Torquay at Plainmoor, but expects his players all to recover in time to face the Spireites.

Spiller is thought to be struggling slightly with an ankle injury and was taken off after an hour of the draw and was replaced by Adebayo Akinfenwa, while Jackman was also replaced near the end of the game.

Joe Martin and Jack Payne, who have been struggling with a hamstring and foot injuries respectively, were both unused substitutes but could come back into contention for the Gills.

Only long-term absentee defender Simon King is definitely sidelined as he continues to struggle from an ongoing ankle problem that has hampered him for over 18 months.

Chesterfield manager John Sheridan has plenty of options should he wish to shuffle his pack.

A few `minor bumps, bruises and stiffness' aside, the League Two leaders have no new injury problems following the goalless draw at Shrewsbury on Saturday.

Manchester City loanee Javan Vidal made his debut at Greenhous Meadow, while Jamie Lowry was on the bench after a 15-month lay-off with a knee injury and Scott Griffiths has returned on loan from Peterborough.

Sheridan also has options in midfield and attack with Ian Morris, Derek Niven, Jordan Bowery and Jack Lester available for recalls.

The trip to Kent is the final game of Deane Smalley`s loan spell from Oldham but Sheridan is trying to extend the forward`s stay.
