Charlie Lee says the players’ new found belief is the reason behind Gillingham’s upturn in form.
The Gills have now won three in a row, following a gritty 1-0 victory at Plymouth on Saturday, which has moved them to within three points of the play-offs in League Two.
Lee (pictured), who has been playing at right-back recently to cover for injuries, said: "We are feeling sky high. We dug in and got a great result.
"It was attack versus defence for most of the game but we showed what we can do defensively and after letting in four on Tuesday we have now kept clean sheets in three of the last four. We are happy with the result.
"We are starting to show the confidence in ourselves and we are looking good."
Lee had to forego his attacking instincts once Joe Martin was sent off in the 31st minute but the former Peterborough man was quick to praise team-mate Garry Richards on his return to the side.
He said: "When you stick together and get a result it’s better than any other result you can get.
"He [Richards] was unbelievable. He got cramp in both calves and I have never seen a centre back do so much running. He will be fighting fit for the next game and he was brilliant."
