Gillingham equalled the club record for the most amount of away victories in a season on Saturday – and now boss Martin Allen aims to break it.
The Gills face York on Tuesday night hoping to claim their 11th away win of the season.
The last time Gillingham reached double figures of away victories in the Football League was under Keith Peacock during the 1984-85 season.
Allen’s men, who have struggled for form at Priestfield, are now hoping to be record breakers away from home.
Allen (pictured) said: “We want to hammer that record. We don’t set out to break a record but I suppose it is nice to be part of the history of the football club and without a doubt we are going to be record breakers.
“It’s special to equal it and it’s going to be brilliant when we beat it. How good is it to be manager and to equal a record for away league wins in one season?
“I hugged everyone as they came through the dressing room door on Saturday) and told them how proud I was.”
The only other league side in England that can match Gills’ record of 10 wins and three draws on their travels are Doncaster, who sit second in League 1.
