Following consecutive victories, Ipswich’s playoff push hit a bump in the road last weekend as they fell to a narrow away defeat against Sheffield Wednesday.
Marvin Johnson‘s sixth-minute strike was enough to condemn the Tractors Boys to a 1-0 defeat, leaving them nine points adrift of the top six.
After two consecutive away games, Ipswich will be grateful to return to Portman Road at the weekend, with the hosts aiming to extend their unbeaten home league run to five games.
In fact, they have proven to be a tough nut to crack on home turf, losing just twice at Portman Road in the league this term.
They are also looking for their third win over Gillingham this season after winning 2-0 in the EFL Trophy in October before thrashing the Gills 4-0 in January.
Gillingham, meanwhile, have the opportunity to claim consecutive victories after they beat Crewe 1-0 on Tuesday.
A Danny Lloyd-McGoldrick spot kick ensured that Harris began his reign with a victory and it was a win that ended a 14-game winless run.
Despite the midweek victory, the new Gills boss knows that his side require a monumental effort in the second half of the season if they are to avoid the drop.
Lee Evans’ spell on the sidelines should be a matter of weeks rather than months, Kieran McKenna has confirmed.
The midfielder picked up a knee injury during Saturday’s 3-0 win over Burton at Portman Road and subsequently missed Tuesday night’s home fixture against Cheltenham.
While he will not be available for Saturday’s trip to Morecambe, Lee’s injury should not require a lengthy period of recovery.

“He’s seen the specialist during the week and thankfully there’s no surgery needed,” said Kieran.
“It’s a matter of weeks and not months but we’ve not put an exact date on it. We’ll see how he recovers over the next week or so.
“Everybody else is fighting to get fit and make their way onto the bus for Morecambe. There are no major issues after Tuesday.”
