Gillingham boss Martin Allen keen to strengthen his top-of-the-table side in bid to keep momentum going in 2013

Gillingham boss Martin Allen is predicting an even better second half of the season for the club – despite finishing the first top of the league.

The Gills will have reached the halfway stage of their League 2 campaign after their game at York on Saturday and, whatever the outcome, will remain top.

And with Allen, pictured, already negotiating January transfers, he is set to have a bigger and better squad at his disposal.

He said: "There is an awful long way to go and we have to play a lot of top teams again.

"We have done well to get to halfway top of the league but I think we are going to be stronger, I really do. We are going to add more players.

"It is our duty to keep trying to improve. We have to keep looking to improve and get better. In January, we will be looking to bring in new players."

Allen is expected to bring in Crystal Palace midfielder David Wright and is also keeping tabs on MK Dons’ injured defender Tom Flanagan. Both impressed at the Gills during loan spells earlier in the season.
