The best home crowd of the season on Saturday was appreciated by Gillingham boss Martin Allen.
Gills fans crammed into Priestfield, following a £10 ticket offer, with the gate swelling to 8,571 – up 3,000 on the average attendance this season.
Allen, pictured, said: "I thought it was amazing. Second half it was fantastic. The atmosphere was magic.
"When you are the manager and you look around, you think ‘this is pretty good’. Then, when you are 2-0 down, they kept singing and that for me was probably one of the highlights of the day.
"The paying public have hopefully gone home happy to see all our lads having a real go."
But Allen admitted he wasn’t happy at the final whistle. He said: "I was really naffed off when our music didn’t get played.
"When our players have done so well, I like the supporters to sing and for our players to thank them. So I will be finding out why that music didn’t get played."
