Sky Bet League One leaders Luton have a doubt over veteran midfielder Alan McCormack ahead of the visit of Gillingham.

The 35-year-old was forced off during the first half of Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Bradford with a hamstring injury, and faces a late fitness test.

Luke Berry, fit again following his own recent hamstring problem, is ready to step in to midfield if needed for cover, having come off the bench at Valley Parade.

Hatters boss Mick Harford could also draft in on-loan Derby midfielder George Thorne, who has made only two appearances as a substitute since arriving in January.

Gillingham manager Steve Lovell could shake things up again after seeing his side beaten 1-0 at home by Bristol Rovers in midweek.

Darren Oldaker was one of three changes, but the 20-year-old midfielder could find himself taken out of the front line again.

On-loan Wigan midfielder Leo Da Silva Lopes is pressing for a recall, along with Elliott List.

Defender Alex Lacey (ankle) is closing in on a return, along with on-loan Sheffield United winger Ricky Holmes (back).

Billy Bingham (calf) and Gabriel Zakuani (ankle) continue their recovery.
