Peter Taylor returned as interim manager on Monday, his first task as our caretaker boss is a home game on Saturday.
Preston come to Priestfield looking to end a run of straight defeats whereas Taylor will be looking to kick-start his claims for the Gillingham job permanently with a home win.
Myles Weston (illness) is back in training but will he be able to feature? I'm not sure if I'm honest.
Matt Fish (knee) is definitely out though; he is a long-term absentee with a serious injury.
Taylor is left under no illusion just what a tough division league one is; you just have to look at the clubs in the league (the likes of Preston) to see this.
He knows just how tough Saturday will be, he told BBC Radio Kent: 'Clubs like Preston being in League One shows you what a tough league it is now.
'I know they have had a couple of defeats but they have some good players and are dangerous opponents.
'Some of their players have played at the top level. Stuart Beavon is somebody I signed from non-league and is a very clever player.
'I am really looking for us to concentrate on ourselves on the ball and have a right go.'
Is Taylor the right man to steady the Gills ship?
I hope so and he also very much hopes he is too, adding: 'I had a very good year here and I am looking to try and achieve that again. Hopefully I get well received and more importantly hopefully the team perform well.'
New manager syndrome can often have an impact but Preston will be desperate to avoid another defeat, so I think if we get a point that'll not be a bad point but have to admit I have a bad feeling that the visitors might go away with all three...
Of course I hope I'm wrong!
