Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido says the postponement of last weekend's game against Swindon Town could turn out to be a good thing.
Several players are nearing a return to fitness and Peschisolido says three more players will now be available to face Gillingham on Saturday.
Billy Kee and Tony James are fit and Justin Richards is back in training.
"It gets them a week further on in the recovery and a week closer to fitness," Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby.
However, Aaron Webster and Lee Lucas are both still a couple of weeks away from returning.
