Gillingham boss Martin Allen admitted his team weren’t at their best at Plymouth on Saturday and was pleased to have emerged with a point.
“You have to give our players a huge amount of credit for the comeback,” said Allen, pictured, whose side twice fought back from a goal down to earn a 2-2 draw.
“They just don’t know when they are beaten, they just keep going. With their fitness levels they are relentless.
“It’s another great point for our team on their travels and after the week they’ve had it was always going to be a bit of a concern. Plymouth lost to a non-league team and played very well against Burton (on Wednesday night) and lost and we were the third team in line and I was thinking ‘this is not a good time to go there’.
“They certainly played with a lot of passion and a lot of enthusiasm and they gave us a right good game, there is no doubt about that. But our Gillingham players just keep going.
“In the end the players got the break they needed and then we nearly won it, as we had one cleared off the line.
“It would have been amazing if we had actually won it. That was testament to the character and the personalities we have got that they just keep going.
“It isn’t always going to be great play from our boys, everybody knows that, but the lads who have come in have done fantastic.”
