Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler has two injury concerns for the visit of Morecambe.

Midfielder Curtis Weston picked up a knock early in the second half of last Saturday's 4-0 romp at Lincoln and he will be assessed before kick-off.

If he does not make it, Jack Payne, who replaced him at Sincil Bank, could be in line for a start.

Hessenthaler also has a worry over Stefan Payne after the striker sustained an injury in a midweek friendly against Canterbury City.

There are no other injury or suspension problems for the Gills as they aim to consolidate their play-off position, where they currently occupy seventh position, having gone 15 games without defeat.

Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy will again be without a trio of players.

Paul Scott (knee), Paul Mullin (back) and Kieran Charnock (Achilles) are all sidelined as the Shrimps seek to build on last weekend`s 2-1 home win over Burton.

McIlroy has no other injury or suspension concerns but Danny Carlton may have earned himself a starting role after he came off the bench to hit the winner last weekend.

Carlton replaced James Spencer on the hour and found the net seven minutes later in an impressive cameo which earned him a ringing endorsement from his boss.

McIlroy said: "It was a great finish from Danny Carlton. He had a couple more chances as well and could have scored a hat-trick."
