Manager Peter Taylor is confident his Gillingham players know the danger that lurks below.

The Gills sit mid-table in League 1 but the gap between themselves and the bottom four is slim.

Taylor’s Gillingham team travel to one of the sides in the bottom four, Bristol City, on Saturday.

He said: “Knowing them as I do now, I don’t think that they will be relaxing in any way. They would feel exactly the same now whether we were in the bottom four and knowing they have to get out of it or not being in the bottom four.

“The players are fully aware of the situation and are responsible and know what we have got to do. I am looking for another four or five wins. If we can get that, we are going to give ourselves a chance to stay up."

“If it means we can get one of them this weekend then that’s brilliant, that’s a good start for us." 

Teams are still playing catch-up with Gills, who have been fortunate not to have been hampered by the weather. 

Midweek action saw the Gills drop from 12th to 13th and they could fall further still once the rest of teams have played the same amount of games.

“That reality will then be good for us because then you know the seriousness even more,” said Taylor.
