Stevenage manager Graham Westley is set to welcome back Byron Harrison for the visit of Gillingham.

The striker returns to the squad after he was cup-tied for the FA Cup clash with Reading.

Midfielder John Mousinho missed the defeat to the Royals' after he limped off against Rotherham but could return to the squad.

The versatile Darius Charles, who scored the equaliser against Brian McDermott's side on Saturday, was substituted with cramp but is set be fit to feature against the Gills.

Midfielder Stacy Long and striker Yemi Odubade both featured as substitute's against Reading and are pushing for starts following their returns from injury.

Midfield duo Darren Murphy (shoulder) and Joel Byrom (foot/ankle) are both still struggling to be fit.

Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler is without Danny Spiller.

The midfielder requires surgery on a badly fractured finger sustained against Chesterfield and faces a spell on the sidelines to ensure he does not risk losing part of his finger.

Fellow midfielder Andy Barcham missed the win against Port Vale with an ankle problem but after having an injection to numb the pain, may feature at Broadhall Way.

Winger Dennis Oli made a return to training following injury but is still likely to be two weeks away from a return to the first-team fold while long-term absentee Simon King remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Hessenthaler has hinted he may make changes to his side.
