The right-back saw red in last weekend's 3-2 defeat at Crawley and now serves a one-match suspension as the Gills go in search of their first win of the season at the ninth attempt.
However, Michael Harriman's return from international duty with the Republic of Ireland's Under-21 squad provides a direct replacement.
Leon Legge is a concern but the centre-back is expected to recover from a back problem in time for the encounter, while striker Cody McDonald is okay having been forced to pull out at the 11th hour last weekend due to illness.
