World News – GB – Gillingham v Pompey – First team: John Marquis to replace Ellis Harrison hosts take stock after illness bug


The forward suffered a hamstring injury in Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Doncaster Rovers and is now expected to be out of action for up to three weeks

John Marquis is likely to be reinstated in the starting XI, with the former Gills player found himself on the bench for the Blues’ last three league games

Any further changes to Pompey’s roster will depend on manager Kenny Jackett and how he wants to approach tonight’s game

Saturday’s visit to Donny saw Ben Close replace Bryn Morris in midfield, while Andy Cannon was preferred over Michael Jacobs as the boss refreshed his offense

Close will probably keep her place, but Cannon could end up among the replacements

Gillingham will be doing a stock check for his team well in advance of kickoff after a disease bug hits their camp

He ruled Jacob Mellis out of Saturday’s loss to MK Dons, while others have also been affected since

The numbers would have been light when the Priestfield side returned to training yesterday, with captain Kyle Dempsey also out after receiving a kick to the ankle / foot in the 2-0 loss to the Dons

On a positive note for the hosts, Tom O’Connor – on loan from Southampton – is available after returning from international duty with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s
