Gillingham’s battle-weary players will be putting their feet up this weekend.

And boss Peter Taylor was more than happy to give his side a rest after the important win over MK Dons on Tuesday night

The Gills defended resolutely for much of the 90 minutes to earn a win which keeps the club comfortably above the League 1 relegation places.

Taylor said: “It’s a massive three points and that leaves us nine points clear which is fantastic.


“People probably didn’t expect that and it was a brilliant night. The players have now got a couple of days off and they deserve that for the yards they covered.

“They are going to be in (today) Friday and the majority of the players who have just played a load of football are going to be off for a couple of days. 

“The others are going to be in Thursday (yesterday) and Friday and then we will let them have the weekend off. The staff will be out watching football and then we will start again the following week.”

The Gills haven’t quite achieved safety but with seven more games left, they have plenty of time to find the extra few points needed to guarantee League 1 football next season.

Taylor said: “We are definitely not safe yet and have to keep going but I am much happier that I was before the game.”
