Barton considers changes as Fleetwood host Gillingham

Fleetwood manager Joey Barton appears to have no fresh selection concerns but could make changes for the Sky Bet League One clash with Gillingham.

Barton questioned his own tactics after his side were beaten 3-1 by local rivals Blackpool last weekend.

On-loan midfielder Jordan Rossiter remains unavailable due to a knee ligament injury which could keep him sidelined for the rest of the season.

Forward Conor McAleny is pushing for a start after scoring off the bench at Bloomfield Road.

Gillingham will be without injured midfielder Mark Byrne at Highbury Stadium.

Byrne is likely to miss the rest of the season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament during last weekend’s win over Sunderland.

Gills midfielder Ben Pringle returns to contention having served a two-match suspension following his red card against AFC Wimbledon on November 23.

Stuart O’Keefe, who has missed the last two matches for Steve Evans’ side, has been struggling with a hamstring problem and will be assessed.
