Blues defender set to play at Priestfield having overcome an ankle knock

Adam Webster may make his first appearance of the new campaign tomorrow as he returns to the squad for Town's pre-season trip to Gillingham.

The former Portsmouth man is yet to make an appearance having injured his ankle while training with the rest of the squad in Ireland. He has since missed victories over Drogheda, Southend and Peterborough but is in line to return at Priestfield.

Goalkeeper, Bartosz Bialkowski missed Tuesday's game against Peterborough through illness, but will also return to the squad.

Bersant Celina and Dominic Iorfa both made their first appearance for the Blues in the victory over Posh at the ABAX, and will also travel to Kent as they look to continue their pre-season preperations.

As has been the case in every game so far, Mick McCarthy will give a number of young players the opportunity to play, including Flynn Downes who signed a new three-year contract earlier this week. 

Following the game at Gillingham, Town take on Colchester United on Tuesday before rounding off pre-season with a trip to the Valley to face Charlton Athletic the following Saturday.
