Gillingham are targeting a six-point haul in a bid to extend their lead at the top of League 2.
The first of two home games inside four days takes place tomorrow (Saturday) when Morecambe visit Priestfield.
And Martin Allen’s pace-setters, who have been held to draws in their last two outings, then host Exeter on Tuesday night.
Boss Allen said: "For these two games it’s going to be exciting and the aim is to extend that lead at the top of the table that we currently have.
"I am sure everyone involved in Gillingham Football Club loves the fact that we are five points clear.
"The fact that we are five points clear after two draws is fantastic. Now if we can push on again, wouldn’t it be fantastic to get six points from these two home games and extend this lead at the top?
"We were just a little bit below our high standards on Saturday (at Plymouth) and the players were the first to admit that but they train hard and work hard and I would never knock their commitment or desire.
"If we play well we win, that’s what I always say to our players. I strongly believe that.
"These games come along and they will be ones where people say we should win but we have got to play well."
