Whelpdale has missed out of late with a foot injury while fellow midfielder Linganzi has struggled to overcome a troublesome hamstring problem.
However, the game comes too soon for Danny Hollands (knee) and Myles Weston (hamstring), while striker Danny Kedwell is again set to take his place on the bench if required for a possible late cameo as he awaits a hernia operation next week.
Boss Peter Taylor could well make changes for the Gills' second game in 72 hours, with the likes of Craig Fagan, Antonio German and Charlie Allen among those pushing for recalls.
