An additional four players have been added to Gillingham's injury list following last Saturday's 3-1 defeat at West Ham.
The first casualty occurred before the match even kicked off when midfielder John Robinson pulled his hamstring during the warm-up.
Robinson is now looking at two to three weeks out of contention for selection, while striker Patrick Agyemang also pulled his hamstring several minutes before half time.
Gills physiotherapist Simon Webster has ruled Agyemang out for the same duration as Robinson after he was unable to run the injury off.
Forwards Nicky Southall and Darren Byfield have been put out of action for the same period as their team mates.
Southall suffered a grade one thigh strain in the second half whereas Byfield collided with an advertising board behind the West Ham goal.
His momentum after crossing the ball caused the accident where Byfield endured a laceration to his left knee requiring 16 stitches.
However, defender Barry Ashby is back in training and should be available for a place against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
Tommy Johnson has also resumed training and will feature for the reserves against Southend United.
Meanwhile midfielders Paul Smith and Alan Pouton are hoping to return to training at the end of the week.
John Hills' ankle is still keeping him out of the running for an additional three weeks.
