Martin Allen not getting down about Gillingham's defeat to Exeter City
Latest Gillingham Press
Conference - Thursday 22nd November
Gillingham's lead at the top of League 2 was cut to four
points on Tuesday night but boss Martin Allen isn’t worried.
A 3-2 home defeat to Exeter was only the club’s third defeat of
the season and the Gills will be aiming to bounce straight back
when they visit mid-table Accrington on Saturday.
Allen (pictured) said: "There is a long time to go and a lot of
games to go and our players have done remarkably well to put us in
"We will work together to ensure we keep getting points and aim
to be at the top of the table come the end of April.
"We don’t ever build up any game as if it’s our European
Champions League final or our biggest game of the season, we just
go to the next game.
"We are going to have peaks and troughs but we’ll keep the same
level all the way through the season. We don’t get too excited or
too down, just carry on what we’ve been doing.
"There was not any boot throwing in the dressing room (after
Tuesday’s defeat). It’s more a question of dealing with it and
learning from it and not to be too hard on anyone."
Left-back Joe Martin (broken hand) is still out ahead of the
trip to Accrington.
