Gills boss Peter Taylor insists his players will be giving their all this weekend – regardless of the opposition.

Gillingham face historic rivals Swindon at Priestfield on Saturday.

Taylor is looking forward to his first Gillingham versus Swindon encounter but insists it’s business as usual in the camp ahead of the game.

“The most important thing for us at the minute is three points,” he said.

“We don’t get four (points) if we beat Swindon, although I know it will feel like that.

“The players know what it means but it won’t make any difference. The players know how important a win would be here on Saturday.

“I know it is lovely to win a local derby, even though this isn’t one but it’s got the impression it is. At the end of the day, players could be playing a team up north and that win is still just as important."
