Ricky Wellard returns to the AFC Wimbledon squad for the visit of Gillingham.

The midfielder missed last weekend's win at Bradford after he was substituted against Cheltenham the week before with breathing difficulties, but he has trained all week and is available.

Kieran Djilali, Charles Ademano and Mat Mitchel-King are also back in training but will not be considered.

Winger Djilali and striker Ademano have recovered from ankle knocks and defender Mitchel-King has shaken off a shin injury.

Mitchel-King, who joined in the summer from Crewe but was sidelined with glandular fever before hurting his shin playing for the reserves, has been pencilled in to finally make his debut against Stevenage in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.

Curtis Weston is set to return to full contention for Gillingham.

The midfielder was an unused substitute for last weekend`s 3-1 win over Burton having missed the previous three games with a thigh injury.

Weston subsequently got 90 valuable minutes under his belt in Tuesday`s reserve defeat at Fulham meaning that, barring any ill-effects, he will be available to start at Kingsmeadow.

However, the Gills remain without defenders Barry Fuller (knee) and Joe Martin (calf), midfielders Danny Spiller (ankle) and Jack Payne (knee) as well as striker Adam Birchall (knee).

There was some positive news this week, however, as it emerged Fuller will not need surgery having aggravated his troublesome knee complaint.

Gills striker Danny Kedwell, who has found the net four times so far this season, comes up against his former employers for the first time since completing a summer switch to Priestfield.
