The Manchester United striker scored 2 goals against Moldova but picked up a yellow-card which has ruled him out of the game.
England, already without the services of Wayne Rooney, will also head into the crunch decider without Daniel Sturridge. The Liverpool striker missed the win over Moldova with a thigh injury and despite returning to his club for treatment he has not recovered sufficiently and will not be considered for the game.
That means that Rickie Lambert with 2 goals in 2 caps could get a second straight start up front with Jermaine Defoe tipped to partner him.
Frank Lampard will make his 100th appearance in an England shirt in Kiev and he will head into the game with a ringing endorsement from his midfield partner, Steven Gerrard
“No one deserves it more than he does,” Gerrard added.
“He has been tremendous for club and country.
“He has been a top player and hopefully I will be on the pitch to share that moment with him because I have been with him all the way through.
“He is a good friend of mine and I can’t wait for him to get it.”
The experienced duo appear to have finally found their rhythm at International level with the pair, considered too similar by previous managers, putting in solid showing at Wembley on Friday.
Gerrard opened the scoring with a fine finish from out the box from a Lampard pass and with Sturridge, Welbeck and Rooney all out the onus will be on the pair again to inspire England.
Having moved top of the group, with three games to go, on Friday a defeat to Ukraine, who face Poland at home and San Marino away in their final two games, would make automatic qualification difficult however Gerrard is confident England can get a result even without the attacking trio
“We have nothing to fear and can go there full of confidence,” the 33-year-old said.
“We need to believe in ourselves, roll our sleeves up and put in a performance because if we were to get all three points it puts us in the driving seat.”
The Ukraine sit just one point England and will head into the game in fine fettle after a 9-0 win over minnows San Marino, their biggest even International win.
The Ukrainian’s have lost just once in the group, but England will take hope from that as that defeat came at home to Montenegro but with the likes of Yevhen Konoplianka (8 goals in 30 games), veteran Anatoly Tymoschuk and former Liverpool target Andriy Yarmolenko in their ranks they possess the tools to make life difficult for England.
The action gets underway at 19:45 GMT.
