Gillingham boss Peter Taylor remains confident that his side can get the wins needed to see off the threat of relegation.
Back-to-back League 1 losses, against Rotherham and Peterborough, have left some fans worrying about the prospect of being sucked into a dog-fight at the foot of the table.
Forty-nine points would have seen the Gills survive in League 1 last season and they currently have 48 with five games left to play.
Relegation may be unlikely but boss Taylor doesn’t want his players thinking the job is done.
He said: “You want the players to be effected and you want them to be realistic because it’s important and it’s a serious situation.
“We don’t want to go to League 2, we want to stay in League 1. It’s a great division but we need to win at least one match and hopefully we can do better than that.
“I’ve had a word with the squad as a group and we’ve got a couple more wins in us. We have got to get them.
“The players are together and prepared to put the work in and we will get the wins but it’s going to be tight.”
