Martin: One of nine injured

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Gillingham and Barnet at Priestfield Stadium.

Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler is facing a selection crisis with as many as nine players set to miss out.

Joe Martin is definitely sidelined at Priestfield as he starts a three-match ban for his dismissal in Saturday's 1-0 win at Plymouth.

Fellow defenders Simon King (dead leg) and Jack Evans (groin) are also struggling, as are forwards Danny Kedwell (hamstring), Jo Kuffour (knee) and Gavin Tomlin (hamstring).

Midfielders Curtis Weston and Jack Payne (both knee) are certain absentees, along with Andy Frampton (ankle).

Hessenthaler has at least received two pieces of good news, with young defender Connor Essam in contention having recovered from illness, while long-term absentee Danny Spiller was back on the bench at the weekend and may be thrust into action against the Bees.

Meanwhile, Barnet have a major defensive headache. Boss Lawrie Sanchez is without both his first-choice centre-halves, Darren Dennehy and Paul Downing, through suspension.

Dennehy completes a two-match ban for his red card against Bradford last week, and Downing serves a one-match suspension after he was sent off in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Rotherham.

Danny Senda remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury so young loanees Jack Saville and Sead Hajrovic, or midfielder Clovis Kamdjo, will be part of a makeshift back four.

Ricky Holmes was substituted late on against Rotherham as a precaution as he has been suffering with sciatica, but Sanchez hopes he will be fit.

Fellow forward Steve Kabba (knee) is still out.
