Gillingham boosted by Olly Lee’s return from illness

Gillingham midfielder Olly Lee is available for selection for Saturday’s League One clash with Doncaster.

Lee, a loan signing from Hearts, was an unused substitute for Tuesday night’s 3-2 win at Blackpool after being laid low by illness, but has recovered and is in contention for a return.

Stuart O’Keefe will hope for greater involvement after coming off the bench at half-time to inspire a second-half fightback at Bloomfield Road.

Fellow midfielder Mark Byrne is ahead of schedule in his recovery from anterior cruciate ligament damage, although manager Steve Evans does not expect him to play again this season.

Doncaster full-back Reece James is out of the game with a badly-gashed shin suffered during Tuesday night’s 2-1 victory over Bolton.

James was taken to hospital by ambulance and although the damage was not as bad as first feared, he is facing between seven and 10 days out of action.

Manager Darren Moore made four changes in midweek in an attempt to freshen things up with on-loan Aston Villa midfielder Jacob Ramsey, who was used only as a late substitute, among those to be rested, and he will hope for a swift return.

Forward Niall Ennis was handed a start and defender Cameron John came off the bench, but winger Jason Lokilo is yet to figure since arriving on loan from Crystal Palace for the rest of the season.
