JASON Demetriou and Stephen McLaughlin both missed Saturday’s defeat to Coventry City.

McLaughlin missed out with a thigh problem while Demetriou joined him on the sidelines to rest an ongoing knee injury.

But Blues boss Sol Campbell is hopeful the duo will both be fit for Tuesday's clash with Gillingham at Roots Hall.

“McLaughlin it’s his thigh and hip area but JD is to rest his knee after a lot of games,” said Campbell.

“McLaughlin we’ll have to see how he is in the next couple of days.

“But hopefully he will be OK for Tuesday and JD should be able to play.”

Demetriou underwent knee surgery twice last season and has to carefully manage his workload to ensure he does not endure another spell on the sidelines.

And that led to him missing out against Coventry.
