Gillingham will be staying in the north for the next five days ahead of games at Bradford City and York City

08 February 2013

Martin Allen will have plenty of time to work on his team in Yorkshire

Gillingham's five-day trip to Yorkshire will be "no holiday camp," insists boss Martin Allen.

A visit to Bradford on Saturday is followed by a game in York on Tuesday and the squad will be staying north for the duration.

Allen said: "The chairman has been good to keep us up there for both games, which is fantastic. That is the best thing for preparation.

"It is a long journey and games now are massive. They are all important and we want to make sure the preparation is spot on.

"It’s not a holiday camp. We need to train and need to work and it helps people to get to know each other a bit better."

Gillingham will train at Leeds United’s Thorp Arch facility, near Wetherby and Allen added: "The best way to get to know each other is on the training pitch."
