Mixed news for Allen League Two leaders Gillingham have received mixed injury news ahead of their home clash against Morecambe.
Charlie Lee, who was forced off at half-time in last weekend's 2-2 draw at Plymouth, has recovered from a virus while fellow midfielder Charlie Allen returns to the fold following his wrist injury.
But the Gills have lost the services of midfield man Jack Payne after he twisted his ankle during training.
Bradley Dack is back in training after his foot problem but the game comes too soon, while full-back Joe Martin (wrist) remains a couple of weeks away from his return despite being involved in some non-contact action.
Martin Allen's side go into the encounter having lost just once at Priestfield this season.
Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has problems in attack ahead of the trip.
Bentley learned he would be without Jordan Burrow for around three months with a knee injury earlier this week and fellow striker Jack Redshaw remains doubtful due to a calf complaint.
Lewis Alessandra led the line with support out wide from Izak Reid and Kevin Ellison in Tuesday night's 1-0 FA Cup first-round replay win over Rochdale and the trio are set to continue in the face of their manager having very few other options at his disposal.
"The front three virtually picked itself the other night," Bentley told the Morecambe Visitor. "Izak Reid's come in from the cold and I thought he worked hard and did well, Kev is Kev and Lewis showed glimpses of what he's capable of again." Goalkeeper Barry Roche overcame a leg injury to feature in midweek, while defenders Will Haining and Robbie Threlfall are back from respective calf and thigh injuries.
Threlfall could come in at full-back after the Shrimps failed to agree an extended deal for Wigan loanee Jordan Mustoe.
Gillingham vs Morecambe

Burton sinks Shrimps Deon Burton struck a last-gasp winner to earn npower League Two leaders Gillingham a dramatic 2-1 triumph at home to Morecambe.
In a quiet first half it was the visitors who had the first chance as Gills keeper Stuart Nelson just managed to gather the ball from an onrushing crowd after spilling Izak Reid's low driven shot in the 10th minute.
Gillingham responded positively but somehow failed to take the lead when skipper Adam Barrett saw both his close range shots blocked on the line after 23 minutes.
Seven minutes later Reid threatened again for Morecambe but his tame shot fell straight in to the arms of Nelson.
The deadlock was broken in the 36th minute as Lewis Montrose poked home the loose ball from 10 yards after the visitors failed to clear Danny Jackman's lofted free kick.
Morecambe started the second half brightly but Nelson did well to repel Gary McDonald's low drive in the 62nd minute.
The equaliser came from substitute Jack Redshaw, who notched his seventh goal of the season within minutes of coming off the bench - tapping in Kevin Ellison's well-worked cross after 69 minutes.
The game looked destined to end all square but in stoppage time veteran striker Burton beautifully controlled a Matt Fish cross before turning and smashing home from eight yards.
