Football - Injuries still trouble Taylor

Gillingham boss Peter Taylor will assess a host of players ahead of the New Year's Day trip to Stevenage.

Danny Kedwell was only expected to play a cameo role in Sunday's 2-2 draw against Walsall as he waits to undergo a hernia operation later this week but ended up playing the entire 90 minutes.

Fellow striker Adebayo Akinfenwa was unable to start a third game in succession due to a lack of match fitness and had to make do with a place on the bench while Chris Whelpdale was feeling discomfort in his ankle following his return to action at the weekend.

They will be checked over along with midfielders Amine Linganzi (hamstring) and Danny Hollands (knee), who have missed out altogether of late. However, Myles Weston definitely remains sidelined with his hamstring injury.
