Martin Allen prepared to shake up his Gillingham side for top-of-table clash with Port Vale

Gillingham boss Martin Allen is ready to shake his team up again despite claiming back-to-back wins.

New signing Steven Gregory will be vying for a starting role against Port Vale on Saturday along with leading scorer Danny Kedwell (pictured).

But both must force their way into a team that have won their last two matches on the road, beating Southend (1-0) and Bristol Rovers (2-0).

Despite the success, Allen said: "This is a different game at home to Port Vale to those away games. We have to look at ways of how we are going to beat them and almost certainly there will be changes to the team that beat Bristol Rovers.

"I have no injuries. Everyone is fit, some people have been rested for a couple of weeks because they needed a break and some have looked good in training. It is a great position to be in because I have so many good players."

Gillingham face a Vale side who sit one place below them in League 2, as they have done for much of the season.

Allen knows they have plenty of threats, not just from leading scorer Tom Pope and new-boy Lee Hughes.

He said: "It is not just those centre forwards, the right winger Myrie-Williams is dangerous and the left winger Kelvin Andrew played well at Dagenham and they have Louis Dodds."

What changes to the Gills side would you make for the Port Vale game? Have yor say below.
