Danny Jackman believes that success at some of the less glamorous locations is a must if Gillingham are to achieve promotion this season.
The Gills face Accrington on Saturday aiming to bounce back from Tuesday night’s home defeat to Exeter.
Jackman (pictured) said: "If you want to win titles and get promoted, you need to go to the sort of away games that aren’t nice to play at and that’s what we’ll be looking to do.
"We’ve had a small blip but we are still top of the league and a good few points away from other teams. We have to go back to doing what we’ve been doing well at the start of the season, go to Accrington and get a result.
"I played (against Accrington) last season and scored – I remember the goals because I don’t get many! It is not a nice place to go and it was my first time there last season.
"It is a strange place but there are all sorts of teams and all sorts of grounds and we have to rise to the challenge, no matter whether it’s the Oxfords or the Accringtons.
"We won’t let the (Exeter) game affect us too much and worry about it. If we can get a good result Saturday, we are back on it again."
