Gillingham's lead at the top of League 2 was cut to four points on Tuesday night but boss Martin Allen isn’t worried.
A 3-2 home defeat to Exeter was only the club’s third defeat of the season and the Gills will be aiming to bounce straight back when they visit mid-table Accrington on Saturday.
Allen (pictured) said: "There is a long time to go and a lot of games to go and our players have done remarkably well to put us in this position.
"We will work together to ensure we keep getting points and aim to be at the top of the table come the end of April.
"We don’t ever build up any game as if it’s our European Champions League final or our biggest game of the season, we just go to the next game.
"We are going to have peaks and troughs but we’ll keep the same level all the way through the season. We don’t get too excited or too down, just carry on what we’ve been doing.
"There was not any boot throwing in the dressing room (after Tuesday’s defeat). It’s more a question of dealing with it and learning from it and not to be too hard on anyone."
Left-back Joe Martin (broken hand) is still out ahead of the trip to Accrington.
