Gillingham assistant manager John Schofield writes exclusively for the KM Group
It was a special victory last weekend in Chesterfield which
broke the club record for away wins in a season but we know it
counts for nothing at the moment.
It is going to be remembered further down the line but right
now, although it is a great achievement and we are proud of it, it
is irrelevant. All it has done is help us get to where we want to
We are glad to have achieved it so soon as it could have been
something hanging around for the next three or four away games. We
have a busy month now and in a fortnight’s time, we are in single
figures for games left.
I wouldn’t say it has flown by but when you look at how long is
left, where has it all gone?!
It is still so tight, I am not sure if we will still know which
way it is going to go by the end of the month.
Everyone is still competitive in the division and you could see
that by the results on Tuesday night, with Port Vale losing at home
while Cheltenham and Rotherham drew.
Aldershot stand in our way this weekend and like we have found a
few times this season, we are playing a team with a relatively new
manager in charge. When a new manager comes in it gives everyone a
fresh start at the club and with that comes fresh expectation.
