Gillingham face teams at either end of the table in the next few days.

But boss Peter Taylor won’t be setting his side up any different.

A trip to Stevenage on New Year’s Day is followed by a visit from promotion-chasers Wolves on January 3 at Priestfield.

Taylor said: “I don’t look at certain teams and think there are points there and not others. I look at every game and look to win it, simple as that.

“Stevenage is a very important game and after that Wolves will be a very important game. It is not a case of putting everyone out for Stevenage and thinking we are not going to win against Wolves.

“The games are tight and if things go for you and you play with a bit of belief then you can beat anyone.”

Stevenage head into Wednesday’s game in poor form, having lost their two matches over the festive period, conceding four goals in each.

They start the game sitting second from bottom in League 1, just a point above basement side Notts County.

“They will probably keep a clean sheet now, you just don’t know,” joked Taylor.

“It is all about how you start. When we went to Tranmere, we said that if we started better, then we would have a chance. We did start well and now it is about how we start against Stevenage.”

Taylor is back at a club where he served as manager for six months in 2007, having taken over from Mark Stimson, when he left for Gillingham.

“It is a good club, a very well run football club,” said Taylor.
