Martin Allen is widely expected to be named as the new Gillingham manager later this afternoon.
Reports circulating this morning claimed the former Barnet and Brentford boss was on his way to Kent to be unveiled at a press conference at Priestfield at 4pm.
Allen was in charge at Underhill for a three-game spell at the end of last season and oversaw two wins in that stay, including a final day victory which kept Barnet in the League.
