Martin Allen is looking forward to seeing bigger crowds on a regular basis as Gillingham continue to lead the way in League 2.
Gills are five points clear at the top and on Saturday had a near full-house crowd of over 8,500 packed into Priestfield for the 2-2 draw with Fleetwood.
"We have a massive catchment area and the atmosphere when you are in here, in that technical area, is brilliant," said the Gills boss, pictured.
"You can imagine what it’s going to be like over the next few months when we get closer and closer to the special line. It’s going to take off and it’s going to be great.
"The supporters are the sales people if the players and our squad do our stuff week in, week out.
"They are the people in your shirt. And then they go to work. They tell the people at work and might go to the pub and tell them and on Sunday mornings the kids might tell their mates and at school they can be proud to be a Gillingham supporter rather than that lot up near London who we are going to be beating over the next few years."
