AFC Wimbledon v Gillingham preview
AFC Wimbledon v Gillingham preview

Gillingham go to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night desperate to get their first league win of the season.

Ady Pennock is under a lot of pressure and having seen his side take just two points from their opening six games, knows time is no longer on his side.

The Gills again look set to be without midfielder Billy Bingham, who was forced to miss Saturday’s defeat at Oxford United after suffering concussion in training.

Defender Gabriel Zakuani will be assessed after coming off for the final 15 minutes against Oxford because of cramp following his return to action from international duty with the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Centre-half Max Ehmer, who has been carrying a back problem, came on as a substitute and could start on the bench again, while striker Josh Parker is pressing for a recall as the Gills search for a first League One victory.

Defender Bradley Garmston (calf) continues his recovery, but Aaron Morris (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

AFC Wimbledon look set to be without Callum Kennedy and Paul Robinson for the home clash with The Gills.

Kennedy left the field on a stretcher following a clash of heads during the first half of the Dons’ 2-0 defeat at home to Portsmouth on Saturday.

Robinson carried on after taking an elbow to his head but was later kicked in the face by Christian Burgess as the Pompey defender attempted an overhead kick and he also left the action.

Jimmy Abdou serves the second game of a three-match suspension, while Tom Soares is making progress in his recovery from a thigh injury, but is unlikely to be risked against the Gills.

Meanwhile, The Gills are set to come up against a few familiar faces with Barry Fuller, Cody McDonald and Andy Barcham expected to feature.
