Gills suffer injury setback
Gillingham have received a triple injury blow ahead of their crunch trip to play-off rivals Oxford.
Midfielders Danny Jackman and Jack Payne will definitely miss out with groin and hamstring injuries respectively while defender Matt Fish faces a late fitness test on a knee problem. The versatile Charlie Lee (ankle) is also not yet ready to return and is scheduled to rejoin training next week, along with midfielder Curtis Weston (knee). But it is not all bad news for manager Andy Hessenthaler, who is set to be boosted by the returns of forward Gavin Tomlin (hamstring) and centre-back Simon King (ankle), while goalkeeper Ross Flitney (knee) will also be assessed as he nears his comeback. It comes after striker Jo Kuffour returned from his knee problem as a second-half substitute in Easter Monday's disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Dagenham. The Gills, ninth, desperately need victory at the Kassam Stadium to cut the four-point gap between themselves and seventh-placed Oxford as the games start to run out.
